Dr. Jack Kevorkian's trial brought the vital issue of assisted suicide to the public's attention. The volatile debate surrounding his actions demonstrates how crucial this thought-provoking book is. The authors cover in detail the different causes of damage to the brain, from skull injuries, to stroke, to drugs, to Alzheimer's disease. They discuss both cures and prevention, as well as the complex social issues that arise when a patient's brain dies.
