Life expectancy is often an important issue - - in cases of serious personal injury, for public health planning, and for families who need to make decisions about future care.

While other books have dealt with average life expectancy in large populations, this is the first book to deal with the estimation of life expectancy from the point of view of an individual patient and his or her family.

In simple language, it explains how to calculate individual life expectancy, and how to avoid the most common mistakes and misunderstandings. Basic concepts are illustrated with data from a wide range of conditions, including cancer, diabetes, alcoholism, cerebral palsy, traumatic brain damage, and spinal cord injury.

This book is of particular value to doctors and lawyers who need to understand individual life expectancy in their professional work, but non-professionals will also find it to be a compact guide to an important subject.
