  • This book hits upon many of the same thoughts and feelings I have about brain death, and my thoughts and feelings come from experiencing the brain death of my 18-year-old son after a car accident. You can read my story at http://forums.delphiforums.com/corner2

  • Hi! Thank you for your comment. I have just visited your site. I will read the posts and comments carefully.

    Various emotions, feelings, and thoughts on brain dead persons can be found in Japanese books and articles too, indeed there are many voices (probably) compared with those in the US. We have more than 2 hundred books on brain death written in Japanese. By the way, The chapter 7 of "Brain Dead Person" will be uploaded soon. I plan to publish the abridged edition of "Brain Dead Person" in the form of free PDF file.

  • Hi!
    I've just completed the reading of "Brain Dead Person" (chapters 2,5,7), so I've posted a recap on my Blog, hope you won't mind the exposure. Especially, the idea of science constantly focusing on irreplaceability from the standpoint of someone directly involved is interesting, and you have developed this idea in many stimulating ways of seeing + feeling. Once again, thanks!
    Abridged PDF version of the book would be great! If I can lend a hand for the translation in French (for free, of course), I'd be happy to help! Let me know...
