The Top Five Regrets of the Dying: A Life Transformed by the Dearly Departing

Reviewed on , book by Bronnie Ware

This is a very qualitative read from a likeable palliative nurse, who listens to dying patients as they are in their final weeks of life. I would say it’s more of an autobiography of someone in that setting, than anything else. I was expecting something more quantitative in the form of e.g. analyzing survey results. Either way, I ended up really enjoying it — but it wasn’t quite as focused on the regrets of the dying as I had thought.
