Good Life, Good Death: The Memoir of a Right to Die Pioneer

New book by bestselling author Derek Humphry

Now comes the fascinating life story of Derek Humphry, founder of the Hemlock Society USA, and a leader for 40 years of the right-to-die movement.  In his well-known free-flowing style, Derek relates his turbulent childhood, his wartime years in England, and how his first wife, Jean, arranged her own time and manner of death when terminally ill.  This led him to pioneering changes in attitudes and ways to assisted dying and starting law reform to make this medically possible.

Six US states now have medicallly-assisted dying as a choice for the terminally ill.

Derek wrote the bestselling books 'Jean's Way' and 'Final Exit' which changed public attitudes to euthanasia.  Each book provoked a storm of controversy.

This memoir, with 17 illustrations, from 02/2017 is in bookstores, on Amazon and available in public libraries.
