Dr. BJ Miller
A Beginner's Guide to the End:
Practical Advice for Living Life and Facing Death

To purchase a copy of Dr. Miller's book, click here. 

Dr. BJ Miller's book, Beginner’s Guide to the End: Practical Advice for Living Life and Facing Death, is a comprehensive and compassionate guide to dying — and living fully until you do. There are plenty of self-help books for mourners, but nothing in the way of a modern, approachable, and above all useful field guide for the living. Written from the perspective of an insider in the medical system and as a fellow patient himself, Dr. Miller offers an honest, compassionate, and detailed-oriented survey that provides guidance on all related experiences that come up when one is dying, and will bring optimism to empower readers with the knowledge, resources and tools that all of us will inevitably need.
