Kathryn Mannix – The End in Mind

Kathryn Mannix is one of Britain's foremost palliative care doctors. After 30 years at the deathbeds of thousands of patients, she believes that dying has turned from an everyday experience to an overly medicalised procedure, and that we've lost the familiarity previous generations had with the process of dying. Her bestselling book With The End in Mind, is her attempt to break the "conspiracy of silence" around mortality.
