Updated annually, The Peaceful Pill Handbook is the leading end-of-life choices guide on methods of self-deliverance which are reliable and peaceful. The book is published within the emerging movement of assisted suicide/ voluntary euthanasia choices. Using Exit International's unique RP Test™ (reliability - peacefulness), the book empowers the reader to compare and contrast different approaches. The only book of its kind to be authored by a scientist who is also a physician, The Peaceful Pill Handbook covers strategies such as Nembutal (sources – including online—storage, testing, use), prescription drugs, the use of inert gases (Helium, Nitrogen) and poisons. The book is aimed at Seniors and folk who are seriously ill who want to be informed of their practical end of life options. An best-seller, The New York Times has said of The Peaceful Pill Handbook, “It lays out methods to end one’s life… the book is banned in Australia and New Zealand. In the US, though, it is only a few mouse clicks away online.” -New York Times, 21 July 2008

Die Autorin nimmt das Thema ernst und hat ein Sachbuch erarbeitet das fast alle Informationen beinhaltet,die
rechtlich und für sie auch moralisch verantwortbar sind.
Wohl derzeit noch konkurrenzlos im Büchermarkt!

4.0 von 5 Sternen It fills a need. 13. Mai 2008
Von JACK BUTLER - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This is the only book of its kind that I've read that is so thoroughly researched. It's a pretty comprehensive study of the various ways there are to end one's life. And each method is rated in many categories including effectiveness, ease of obtaining the required materials, painlessness, etc. Near the end of the book there is a good description of how to obtain the best drug (in Mexico) and includes very helpful pictures of the products. I can seriously see cutting the pictures out and showing them to a clerk in Mexico who might otherwise not be able to figure out what I was looking for (because of language difficulties). However, you pay a stiff price to get this information in paperback form ($35.),there is a lot of scientific "padding" to fill out the pages and that is why I gave it four stars instead of five. However, it is the only game in town at this time as far as I know so I'm glad that I have it in my library in spite of the high cost.

5.0 von 5 Sternen straight to the point 30. April 2008
Von Juanita James - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I am only in my 30's and not ready to leave this place just yet(if I can help it). Knowing that I have this book is such peace of mind for me and my boyfriend because should anything happen I want to control MY outcome. The book gives you alternatives on how to end it and gives you the information you need to be able to make sure you don't make mistakes. This is much better than trying something and have it go horribly wrong.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Lacks practical solutions 1. Oktober 2008
Von dnetdog - Veröffentlicht auf
For those who would like to have control of their destiny, this is detailed but frustrating book. The problem is that none of the solutions that could be considered "peaceful" are practical for most people. The primary "peaceful" solution requires going to Mexico to smuggle a life-ending drug into the US. The second best option requires obtaining a prescription for a drug that most doctor's are unwilling to provide. The remaining solutions are anything but peaceful and would cause devastating trauma to any family member who might become involved during or after the end of life event. Hopefully, there are (or will be) other books that better address the issue of death with dignity.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Critically inaccurate information for Exit Bag 31. Oktober 2010
Von John Satterfield - Veröffentlicht auf
Revised May 21, 2011
I attempted to implement the "Exit Bag' method of ending my life, and found that a crucial part of the information provided was inaccurate: "With an Exit Bag, a person breathes easily and peacefully..." (4th paragraph Chapter 5). I began growing faint (losing consciousness), but I was short of breath, and the gas inside the bag was quite hot, presumably from my breath. I was so uncomfortable that I pulled the bag off. I attempted the procedure three times, checking the tank pressure first to make sure it was adequate, before giving up. Surprisingly, before using the bag I was neither anxious nor depressed. I just had the thought "Do I really want to do this? It's kind of dumb. But I have decided to."

The equipment was easy to prepare. I found the Balloon Time helium tank at my local Party America store, I purchased from Exit International the flow regulator and the pressure gauge to check the tank, and made an "exit bag" from an oven bag, all according to Peaceful Pill's instructions. To see if I would panic with the bag over my head, I rented a scuba tank and regulator and held the second stage open with the bag over my head--no problem.

But the system didn't work as described. I read in the paper this week that Joseph Brooks successfully used this system using a dry-cleaning bag. The solution may be to use a larger bag and two helium tanks, so that the gas won't heat up as much and the carbon dioxide that builds up in the bag (which causes the feeling of suffocation) will be more diluted.

No doubt the "exit bag" would have worked if I had endured the discomfort. But if I were to try again (no plans at this time) I'd use a gun. Not my first choice, because it would leave a mess, but quick and certain.

5.0 von 5 Sternen There is still hope to find the elusive Sodium Pentobarbital!!! 15. August 2010
Von Chance Wayne - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I purchased this book because I have been exploring the options of assisted suicide, and with my extensive knowledge of ethical pharmceuticals in the USA, this book offers hope for the here and now that Sodium Pentobarbital (that was taken off of the USA market in capsule form by Abbott Labs, after many decades of production, is still accessable) in "certain other countries, 4 in particular, worldwide, where it can be obtained, without too many hoops, (at present) if one
wants to take action in procurement of this immmediate release fast acting sedative. I grew up during a time when Nembutal, Seconal, and Tuinal were easily accessable, but this has not been the case in the USA for approximately 35 my humble opinion. It is only available in ampules (vials) and stocked generally in major USA hospitals, and if prescribed, usually is done so, "maybe for someone in Hospice care, and in very sparing amounts, and not for
the purpose that the "Peaceful Pill Handbook" was written for. (the motive I interpreted about the Peaceful Pill Handbook, is for one to be able to decide for themself, just like one dones in having a "living will" notorized, if one
determines that they want to check out of a life of physical or severe psychological misery, in a peaceful, non violent, but very effective way. The
options I have seen that the choice of powerful sedatives in my lifetime, have been radically reduced since the 1960's thru the middle 1980's. It is nearly impossible to get a medical doctor to prescribe a once common fast acting barbitituate, today, and this has been the case for at least 19 to 20 years!!!
Only the capsule "Seconal" distributed formerly by Eli Lilly, but now manufactured by Marathon Pharmaceuticals make a similar drug to Sodium Pentobarbital (Nembutal) and I haven't known anyone with a Rx or seen one of the pills since the middle 1970's. This book gives very detailed information about where to obtain this medication, from veterinary drug sources in some foreign countries, and also offers other medication, and other chemicals and that can be used if one chooses to end their life, and, I am glad I purchased the book with a clear mind, without any immediate pressure, to know about alternative options, especially in foreign countries. My biggest fear, is that the doors may be shut soon on a very effective barbituate, (pentobarbital) worldwide, possibly within a few years, (just my personal opinion). I have seen other effective ethical pharmaceuticals become banned in the USA, and the stigma spreads, and a medicine can be truly eliminated worldwide, including the chemical precursors to make the substance, once a stigma is attached to a effective, but "abusable medication". I know of two very effective medications that were banned in 1984, in the USA, and it was finally banned worldwide in 2006 in Switzerland, the last country to offer a similar powerful, peaceful sedative hypnotic. (methaqualone) and another example is Glutethimide, which was removed from the USA market in 1992, and was finally removed from the last 2 Eastern European countries only in 2006. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to have some hope that in 2010 all hope is not lost, to seek out certain meds that are really gradually headed for extinction. This book also removes some uneasy guily feelings I had in my subconscious mind about making a decision to ends ones life peacefully, rather to suffer in advanced old age, and to be a burden to one's self and to others!
I just hope the options remain in the countries that are identified in this book to obtain Nembutal (Sodium Pentobarbital liquid) and interferene from Law Enforcement does not close another door to a right I believe everyone should have about living or dying.

the Exit flow control kit on a standard 420 litre Helium cylinder gives a useful operating time of ~20 minutes. &quote;

This is one clear advantage of the barbiturate, Nembutal. A death that results from drinking 100 ml (6gm) of veterinary, liquid Nembutal is usually very quick. Sleep occurs within minutes of consumption of the Nembutal and alcohol, with death following within the hour. &quote;

Fifty years on and it is pentobarbital (Nembutal) that has become the preferred Peaceful Pill. Nembutal is a member of the barbiturate family of drugs that are made from the salts of barbituric acid. These active barbiturate salts have been used for many years, mainly as sedatives or sleeping tablets. &quote;
