...a useful addition to the library shelves of anyone working in palliative care and could be used as a reference as well as to promote discussion among team members. Speech and Language Therapy in Practice ...well-written and easy to read and understand...I recommend this book as a must for all professionals engaged in palliative care, clinically and/or in teaching the subject. I do not know of any other book which deals exclusively and openly with resilience in palliative care... this book should have a place in every health and social care library. Christiane Banton, Sr Lecturer Palliative Care, University of Wolverhampton
