Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Minus One is an account of one man's coming-to-terms with his own mortality and the specter of separating from those he loves. It is a buoyant story of friendship chronicled through the observations of thirty-eight people in an exchange of e-mail. With surprising humor the letters capture the anxiety of good-byes while reflecting the wisdom that graces the ordeal of conscious dying. -------------------- "If Tuesdays with Morrie offers instruction on how to live, then Minus One offers lessons on how to die with dignity. It moves like a locomotive, punches like Ali, yet its message is strangely consoling. This is a powerful story that should be read by everyone - twice." Louis C. Saeger, M.D. author, The Historical Development of Bioenergetic Analysis "I found I couldn't put it down..." [Afterward,] "I sat for some time in silence... This is a remarkable piece of human history and I felt privileged and enriched to have shared it with the people who lived it." John Hinterberger, columnist The Seattle Times "...and my physical reaction to it was powerful. My pulse rate kept going up as I read on. By the time I finished, I was so emotionally ramped up that I had trouble sleeping." Kim Leatham, M.D. "...never read anything like it. I got up from the couch only once - to get a box of Kleenex. Laughed as much as I cried . . . one of the best love stories ever." Carol Gray NPR reporter
