Terry Pratchett's ethical essay was first broadcast to millions as the BBC Richard Dimbleby Lecture 2010. Now more poignant than ever, he argues for our right to choose - the right to a good life, and a good death too...
"Most men don't fear death. They fear those things - the knife, the shipwreck, the illness, the bomb - which precede, by microseconds if you're lucky, and many years if you're not, the moment of death."
- Terry Pratchett
When Terry Pratchett was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in his fifties he was angry - not with death but with the disease that would take him there, and with the suffering disease can cause when we are not allowed to put an end to it. In this essay Terry addressed why we all deserve a life worth living and a death worth dying for.
64 pages. Includes foreword by Terry Pratchett's friend and assistant of many years, Rob Wilkins.
