Saper Accompagnare, (Roughly translated "To Know How to Companion) is the first Italian book by Frank Ostaseski.
Published by Oscar Saggi Mondadori Inc., Italy's largest publisher, it features a forward by Marco Venturino, M.D., the leading palliative care specialist. The book was introduced in Milan and wholeheartedly recommended by Professor Umberto Verenesi, M.D., Italy's former Minister of Health.
Italy's most popular women's magazine, Le Donna Moderna, praised the writing as "..una Sottovoce incontro alla Fine..." (a soft voice in encountering the end).
Excerpt from the Introduction:
"The eyes of a dying patient are the clearest mirrors I have ever known. In their gaze there is simply no place to hide. Over the years the habits of my life have been reflected in those eyes. My illusion of separation. My deepest clinging and aversion. An undying love. The range of human emotions we all share, when confronting the fundamental truth of sickness, old age and death."
