    I was rather torn on my rating of this I saw this book as bluntly a how to book on suicide With my personal attachment to the idea of suicide I found it very bothersome that this book has been published albeit understandably self published There are diagrams step by step guides tips etc on various methods to commit suicide ie his recommended Nitrogen Bag method to use cash when purchasing items so as to not leave a trail that it is absolutely imperative to stay silent if someone has to assist in a suicide to not volunteer any information to any investigator Let them do the investigating that one should use two vehicles in the situation of death by carbon monoxide in case one dies he provides many examples of the best barbiturates to use which medications to not use due to past failures where one can get these in various countries what their names are in foreign countries how to find a doctor that may assist how to ask etc etc etc etc etc You have the picture? Yes this is supposed to be a guide as he states several times in italics andor capital letters throughout the text for Only individuals with terminal illness physical death that is explicitly inevitable within in the next several months not to be used for anyone simply wanting to check out of life But really let's be honest suicidal people with psychiatric illnesses can easily use this as a how to manual despite this so called instruction which is clearly there for legal reasons The reason I am conflicted is because I am not unwilling to admit a supporter of assisted suicideeuthanasiaphysician assisted suicideself deliverance but yes only for those with undeniably incurable unbearable pain andor terminal diagnoses With the way the laws are right now aside from Oregon this is in a way necessary for those who want to end their lives but cannot seek assistance from a professional On the same note if it were legalized in this country as it has been in Australia Belgium the Netherlands etc this manual would not be necessary leaving it off the shelves out of the hands of suicidal people with no terminal diagnoses I also believe that if someone really wanted to commit suicide for whatever reason they would be able to find a way via the internet friends research etc to do so Also most suicides due to psychiatric diagnoses involve an ambivalent person looking for a way out but also wanting someone to save them This book therefore simply makes it easier for said individuals to execute their rightfully ambivalent plan This is certainly not a good thing In conclusion? I'm not sure how I feel about the widespread availability of these tips on committing suicide but I do see both sides of the argument Ideally euthanasia would be legalized this book would not be availableneeded everyone would win That being said it was informative an intriguing read

    Why am I rating a book on assisted suicide so highly?Because this is not a book about death It's a book about life It doesn't attempt to answer uestions for you even though it states an opinion It only prompts you to ask various uestions of yourselfWhat is life?Who's job is it to value it?There are many uestions worth answering and while Humphries does not pretend to be the purveyor of all of the answers on the subject he'll definitely get you to thinking whether you agree with him or notIf you're open minded you can read it and gain from it even if you decide in the end of the book to disagree for whatever reasons you haveI recommend it to everyone but as a parent be informed that it does describe a method of taking one's own life Bear in mind however that this is not the focus of the bookSomberly informative Wag

    A prediction Whether an American state has legalized physician aid in dying will become a significant factor in choosing where to retire The baby boom generation gave rise to books like Our Bodies Our Selves We lived through the advent of the birth control pill Many of us are mystics andor agnostics We are accustomed to living with self advocacy and self determination When it comes to dying which is a task ahead for each and every one of us we are not going to be inclined to simply cast the dice Until Physician Aid in Dying is legally available to everyone even non terminal crones and geezers we will be seeking information on DIY options This book is very useful for anyone who doesn't want to linger around as a suffering burden on family and society whilst our uality of life is in the pits and we might as well be dead already A botched self deliverance is as bad as a botched abortion Get it wrong and your final bow may be strung out by lying around half dead running up hospital bills and imposing angst on everyone No one wants a bloody or violent death either accidental or otherwise We'd all like to go out peacefully with loved ones nearby after having had some time to tie up loose ends and make amends in advance Final Exit will continue to be a necessary resource until the legal system and the general public come to grips with the realities of a planet's finite resources contrasted with the ability of the medical system to keep us alive long past our expiration dates often against our wishes Once we are collectively facing end of life issues with rational euanimity rather than avoidance and grim dread we can proceed to make DIY death with dignity books mere historical artifactsUntil then I recommend this book and also The Peaceful Pill Handbook for folks like me an old hippie who still thinks the Age of Auarius is eminently possible I haven't given up on the peaceful revolution we started back in the 60's and I still say Keep your laws off my body Peace Out

    Final Exit was written for people that suffer from cancer Lou Gehrig’s disease Alzheimer’s Parkinson’s Huntington’s multiple sclerosis and muscular dystrophy emphysema congestive heart failure stroke AIDS and It says in the book that although suicide is not encouraged the book was written for people who suffer from a fatal or irreversible illness or intractable pain someone who feels that their uality of life is unacceptable to them or someone who may just feel that their future is hopeless Complete with recipes for death this book often reminds the person reading to put a plastic bag over their head after taking however many pills it tells you to take It is also written to always leave this book beside you with a suicide note inside so no one will think of your death as anything other than suicide As far as I can tell there is not a person on earth that should have to live if they dont want to according to this book; it seems to cover everyone I do not think that taking a bunch of pills and placing a plastic bag over your head would be a good way to go imagine convulsing around the room throwing up inside the bag on your head for a moment Best to move to a state that allows assisted suicide This is the book for the people that can not get the suicide pill Although this was a very interesting read and was written well the content disturbs me

    It is the height of abhorrence that we treat our dying pets with dignity and compassion than our dying loved ones Final Exit published in 1991 is a dated yet an historic expose of euthanasia alternatives at that time Alternatives often violent gruesome and fraught with error all due to spineless lawmakers and medical providers unwilling to respond with compassion Now twenty five years later we have advanced little An entire industry of prolonging death continues to evolve with society complacently standing by It is shameful that the dying should be treated so inhumanly

    I read this book when it first came out in '91 as I am a BIG proponent of Right To Die I see nothing wrong with it and believe FIRMLY that G accepts your soul to heaven on His timetable not ours and therefore there's no such thing as 'Suicide'I've read uite a few of these books but Mr Humphreys is the most intelligent by far He gets right to the heart of helping yourself or someone else 'self deliver' by mentioning how to do it when is the correct time and who to tell or not Paramount to me is explaining why you did this as people believe what they choose but leaving a note leaves nothing to chance Although still people believe what they want depression etcA truly truly intelligent book Mr Humphreys BRAVO

    I was worried of getting bed ridden due to old age or illness This is a fantastic book if you are thinking about how to end life if uality of life deteriorate due to age illness etc

    Final Exit by Derek HumphreyThis read like a master's thesis on active euthanasia It not pleasure reading but it is informative It freuently referenced suicide hotlines for emotional suicides did not list nonprescription medication toxicities and cautioned heavily against the use of nonprescription drug overdoses It gave careful consideration to how loved ones will feel following a suicide how to get affairs in order and how to be absolved of legal responsibility should you br present when a nother persons suicides There is also a chapter on Kevorkian and a section for doctorsnursesWhy challenged? My guess? Well obviously this is a book about how to kill yourself Although it is only meant to be used by terminally ill adults it could theoretically be mis used by depressives Also many object to euthanasia in any form and would object to the book on moral groundsResearch says Promotes suicide
