Killing Me Softly is a radical and compelling examination of the current euthanasia debate. Frustrated by continuing controversy and political inaction in this area, prominent activists Philip Nitschke and Fiona Stewart present a powerful argument in favour of our right to die as we choose. Their concerns include the way in which the medical profession has assumed 'ownership' of death, and the fact that existing laws restrict our end-of-life choices. They offer a future where a 'Peaceful Pill' could revolutionise euthanasia just as the contraceptive pill transformed birth control a generation ago. This book is recommended reading, not just for those who already believe we have the right to choose a dignified death but also for anyone still to be persuaded . . .

The fail-safe plan for ensuring one's final wishes are respected Advanced directives and living wills have improved our ability to dictate end-of-life care, but even these cannot guaran­tee that we will be allowed the dignity of a natural death. Designed by two sisters-one a doctor, one a lawyer-and drawing on their decades of experience, the five-step Compassion Protocol outlined in A Better Way of Dying offers a simple and effective framework for leaving caretakers concrete, unambiguous, and legally binding instructions about your wishes for your last days. Meant for people in every walk of life-from the elderly, to those in the early stages of mentally degenerative diseases like Alzheimer's, to healthy young people planning for an unpredictable future-this book creates space for a discussion we all must have if we wish to ensure comfort and control at the end of our lives..

This is the revealing, personal story of the man behind the controversial pro - euthanasia movement, told in his own words. Medical doctor, humanist, author and founder/director of Exit International, Philip Nitschke's life has always been in the spotlight. The book spans Philip's early days, from his curious, activist student days in Adelaide, to working with Aboriginal land rights groups in Australia's Far North; to his successful campaign to have euthanasia legalised in Australia and his assistance in four people ending their lives before the law was overturned. It covers the controversy surrounding Philip's work, including the banning in Australia of his international bestselling book The Peaceful Pill, and disturbing reports that many young people overdosed on Nembutal, the drug that Exit International recommends for suicide. Ultimately, Philip believes that the right to one's own death is as fundamental as the right to control one's own life: 'It seems we demand humans to live with indignity, pain and anguish whereas we are kinder to our pets when their suffering becomes too much.'

(Please note that a 2015 updated edition is also available). Hailed in 2010 as the most complete source available, Five Last Acts II details options and methods for rational suicide in the event of unbearable and unrelievable suffering. Bringing reassurance, knowledge and hope, and the strength to face an uncertain future. (Please note a 2015 version is now available.) Even with modern technology, not all ends are good ones. Although palliative care continues to make great strides, the final hours or days of some people are so difficult that they elect to take matters into their own hands and end things sooner rather than later. Once that decision is taken, lack of knowledge, planning or preparation can result in even greater suffering. Five Last Acts collects the wisdom of multi-disciplinary research, workshops and developments worldwide in a major new volume. The body of the work is written in easy-to-understand language to offer a practical guide for every reader. Technical explanations are reserved for the appendix. Five Last Acts provides the reliable options for the last act in your own play. Feedback on the first edition: "I have just finished reading your most excellent book, Five Last Acts; it is so well-researched, so informative, so clear, that it leads me to ask this question: which rational person would not want to obtain a copy of this book as an insurance policy against an uncertain future?" Chris Goodwin The new edition of Five Last Acts is completely revised and expanded, giving even clearer insights and the most comprehensive guidance on self-deliverance worldwide. Over 400 pages with more than 40 illustrations and over 450 references. It is the only book of its kind that includes the emergency methods and practices that can even be used if one finds oneself confined to a hospital or a nursing home.
