Well written and translated in audio.
I enjoyed this book. It was recommended to me from a small group I have been meeting with. I was unaware of most of the stories and was moved by the authors own at the end. Recommended for those seeking true examples of living and dying.

Great little book
Would you consider the audio edition of Graceful Exits to be better than the print version?
This is a little book that relates in different voices, tales, stories and situations around dying high spiritual masters from 3 spiritual perspectives.
It has a 30 minute introduction and then numbered tales as they tell the story.
Its very nice and well made, and all the stories are numbered although not for the chapters on the online version of the library, meaning, that if you look for a specific tale, you will not find it using their chapter system of Audible. But thats ok.
The female voice of the introduction for me was a little plain. But it was fine, for the subject. The stories are very interesting and some of them quite famous, some other not that much. Its an interesting perspective on death and dying and I think it's worth the price.
