About Debra Oliver

David B. Oliver has spent much of his life studying and teaching about aging and end-of-life care. When diagnosed in 2011 with Stage Four nasopharyngeal cancer, he realized that this was his ultimate teaching opportunity—the chance for an educator to experience and chronicle terminal cancer from the patient's perspective. In this groundbreaking and inspiring book, Oliver makes the most of that opportunity, sharing what 'dying well' can teach us about life, love, and hope. David passed away on March 14, 2015 completing his Exit Strategy. He died at home, pain free, surrounded by others, and excited until the end.

I have known David as a colleague and friend for many years. His book is a classic in relationship to his life, professional and personal experiences that can be invaluable to persons in the field of human service. I endorse reading it and rereading it in order to grasp the full meaning of his message.

I would love to write a review. I met David and Deb on a cruise last month which prompted me to purchase the book. I cannot figure out how to transfer it to my Kindle. I followed the instructions but to no avail. If I get to read the book, I will definitely write a review.
