Summary:Let's Talk About It is the essential book on death and dying to transform the way we die. Lea's unique and innovative approach educates us on: finding the courage to face our fear of death; empowerment for making conscious choices; creating a care team of family and friends to support real connection; and the true value of communication through open discussions in our own family. Gripping true stories are included to personalise the experience of death, to break down barriers and negative associations.
