The Peaceful Pill Handbook is the controversial, ground-breaking new book from Australian end-of-life physician Dr Philip Nitschke. The Peaceful Pill Handbook for the first time offers a comparative analysis of end of life approaches comparing the peacefulness and reliability of methods such as the purchase of Pentobartibal Sodium (Nembutal) in Mexico, the manufacture of the homemade Peaceful Pill, the use of Helium and Exit bag, the prescription drug Propoxyphene, and the Swiss option offered by the Dignitas service in Zurich. Currently subject to a censorship hearing in Australia and New Zealand, The Peaceful Pill Handbook offers a succinct, scientifically-grounded guide to end-of-life options, voluntary euthanasia and assisted suicide.

In 1996, Dr Philip Nitschke became the first physician in the world to administer a legal, lethal voluntary injection. This was under the world's first right to die law - the Rights of the Terminally Ill Act of the Northern Territory of Australia. Today, Dr Nitschke is a world leader in end of life choices. More than a theoretician, Philip Nitschke has led the new DIY movement, providing workshops and advising and coordinating the world's first home manufacture of a barbiturate-like Peaceful Pill by 20 elderly Australians. His first book was published by Penguin in 2005, and titled Killing Me Softly: Voluntary Euthanasia and the Road to the Peaceful Pill.Review:
