This user’s guide begins with the thought, “You need to be crazy to stay sane in a crazy world,” the author immediately begins explaining his self-help information. He lists ways to help yourself that are mostly free. He also describes what people think will bring them happiness that do not necessarily help, such as material objects. The author is a universal world citizen, citing how major religions view depression.
The first part of the book is short, clear, and concise. A more philosophical discussion follows later in the book detailing the specific aspects of depression, examples of people who exhibited them, and how the people became better.
The stories are easy to relate to as the writing is conversational and kind.
 Facts about sleep are detailed, as sleep can be a problem in depression. Dr. Rich says too much or too little sleep can both be a problem. Relaxation, meditation, mindfulness, and flow theory are also covered.
Throughout the book, links to further explanation are provided which are usually on Dr. Bob Rich’s website. In the Kindle version, a person can just click the links to easily find more discussion on the topics. He also recommends several books that will help most people. He suggests some people might benefit from in-short-term person counseling, as well.

Product Details

All of us are entitled to the rewards of a
peaceful, pain-free death. This book honors that with true stories
about hospice patients and inspiring insights from the
author. Becoming Dead Right guides us through the
general and "how to" information maze that prepares
us for dealing with death.

Improving and expanding hospice services will
require systemic changes in healthcare institutionss
outreach to diverse populations, and funding. With the inclusion of hospice programs
in nursing homes, dying with dignity becomes even more important.
Millions of aging baby boomers heighten the urgency for better hospice care
and conditions in nursing homes.


Praise for Becoming Dead Right
"A school principal and hospice volunteer, Frances Shani Parker relates her experiences with dying people in nursing homes. The second part of her book is about what we as individuals and as a society must do to improve things for those who are dying. I particularly enjoyed the guided tour, conducted from a wheelchair, of Baby Boomer Haven." -- Dr. Roger Woodruff, Director of Palliative Care, International
Association for Hospice and Palliative Care, Austin Health, Melbourne, Australia


"The writing is eloquent and powerful, and the stories are instructive and lasting. After finishing this book, I wanted to do more for other individuals who are dying, for as Ms. Parker so clearly imparts, the dying teach us so much about living well." -- Dr. Peter A. Lichtenberg, Director, Institute of Gerontology, Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan


"This book is filled with poetry, stories, wisdom and common sense that can help boomers, students, caregivers and policy makers understand their own aging and realize that our society can - and should - make important changes that can ensure safe, dignified, individualized care at the end of our lives." --Alice Hedt, Executive Director, National Citizens Coalition for Nursing Home Reform
