Death, Dying and Donuts

Death, Dying & Donuts is a must read. This book addresses all aspects of dying. Dr Colin shows us that dying is possible and he provides a roadmap for those who are dying so that they no longer have to fear death. While this book is primarily a resource for those who are dying, it is also of enormous benefit to those who care for the dying, for family members who have to understand the dying of a loved one and for health professionals who need to start the conversation about dying.

This is a beautiful book filled with Colin’s personal reflections, powerful anecdotes and ultimate solidarity with those who face death. It is not about giving up but rather about getting up and making the most of life at the end of life.

“It is only when we have passed the threat of death
that we really get to enjoy our donuts” – Dr Colin Dicks
