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

Read in Mar 2021
Book by Bronnie Ware

I try my best to write a short summary/review of the books I read, and this is one of them. I typically publish them on Goodreads, but also sync them to here.

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.
