Two books inside one volume, this book is for the guidance of terminally ill or chronically physically ill persons who wish to hasten the end of their lives due to pain and distress. (It does not deal with suicide for other reasons.) Written by the author of the bestselling "Final Exit", this is a vital companion to that book, not only because of the methods and drug information contained within, but also the familial and emotional aspects of assisted suicide. In the 'Let Me Die..." section, true stories are told of how dying people handled their ends, what methods they used, and how the experience affected them and their loved ones. In the 'Supplement to Final Exit" section, the laws and political developments are outlined, but, more important, the newly-developed means of 'self-deliverance' using helium or other inert gases is described, with illustrations.
