"Easy Death is an exciting, stimulating, and thought-provoking book that adds immensely to the ever-increasing literature on the phenomena of life and death.
But, more important, perhaps, it is a confirmation that a life filled with love instead of fear can lead to an ultimately meaningful life and death. Thank you for this masterpiece."
