Book Description:

After doctors refused to disable the pacemaker that helped her aged, stroke-damaged father's heart to outlive his brain, award-winning science writer Katy Butler set out to understand why modern medicine was prolonging his final misery. Her quest had barely begun when her mother rebelled against her doctors, and met death the old-fashioned way: head-on. This book is the fruit of the Butler family's journey and a map through the labyrinth of modern dying.
