Leaning Into Sharp Points

Leaning into Sharp Points by Stan Goldberg is a brilliant book full of insights and practical advice about what it is to be a caregiver and what ways one can properly care for someone with intention, compassion, and love.

There were several lines that I made notes of including: “The decision to die in a hospital has the underlying premise that the length of time left to live in more important than the quality of time remaining”

Reading the book cover-to-cover in order is an option but it is also a book that can be sampled and dipped in and out of. Clearly Stan Goldberg knows of what he writes and cares about the various people he has seen to as a hospice carer. His willingness to share his experience and wisdom is a gift to all readers.

I have read many books of this ilk and this one stands out as one of the best
