"Final Exit" book in 15th year

The book “Final Exit: The Practicalities of Self-Deliverance and Assisted Suicide for the Dying” by Derek Humphry, has now been in continual print for 15 years. It is presently in its revised 3rd edition. With copies bought directly from ERGO comes a free ‘Addendum’ which updates the book to 2005.

It remains the only volume discussing frankly the approaches, the methods, and the means of voluntary euthanasia, physician-assisted suicide, and self-deliverance (rational suicide).

There are also accompanying DVD (2006) and VHS video versions of the book.

In l991 the first edition, then published by the original Hemlock Society (1980-2003) was for 18 weeks the number one bestselling
nonfiction book in America — to everyones surprise! It has sold over a million copies.

The paperback ‘Final Exit’ is published by Random House, New York.

Today it remains a consistent seller throughout the English-speaking world, and there are currently translations in Spanish and Italian.

Buy the book, DVD or VHS over the internet at the ERGO store
