Updated 2008 edition. A unique euthanasia desk reference. A companion book to the bestselling 'Final Exit'. 220 pages of vital information about assisted suicide and euthanasia.
"The Good Euthanasia Guide" is a 'where-to' and 'why' book which complements the 'how-to' of 'Final Exit'. It contains an annotated list of every right-to-die group in the world, and a unique account of the assisted suicide laws in almost every country, a filmography and a bibliography. Dr. Jack Kevorkian's life and work are reported in three chapters.
After the success of the first edition (sold out), now comes a larger and updated 2006 edition of the Guide. A new chapter is added dealing with the future of the right-to-die movement, exact details of the reshuffling which has been rampant in American groups in the past year, and newer lists of books and films. 'The Guardian' newspaper in London said when reviewing the first edition: "The book is not a 'how-to' manual but one that points people towards the countries and organizations that will assist a death."
The author, Derek Humphry, who has 30 years experience in the death with dignity movement, helped his first wife Jean to die when suffering a lingering death from breast cancer. His book on that event, 'Jean's Way' is a cult classic. Five years after her death he founded the Hemlock Society, which he ran from 1980 to 1992. (Hemlock was later merged into another organization, Compassion and Choices). He was president of the World Federation of Right to Die Societies 1988-90. He wrote "Final Exit " and four other books on this issue, including "Let Me Die Before I Wake", his first `how-to' book which has sold thousands of copies since 1981. Before taking up the right-to-die campaign Derek was a veteran investigative reporter for the London Sunday Times and the Los Angeles Times.
Today Derek Humphry runs the
Euthanasia Research and Guidance Organization, a nonprofit organization based in Oregon which he started in 1980. He is an adviser to the American group, the Final Exit Network.
