My husband died and this book was recommended to me.
Fred H. Gregory
It is written very simply, and easy to understand, yet it goes into detail on exactly how to deal with your grief.

It was helpful to me at that time in sort of a simple way.

Wow, this book is different. It is written very simply, and easy to understand, yet it goes into detail on exactly how to deal with your grief. I found the chapters on anger, also one on how to get through the holidays, very helpful. At the end is a special method for dealing with a heavy grief that just won't go away. Overall, an easy read that really struck home for me. I recommend this book for anyone caught in a serious bereavement.

My husband died and this book was recommended to me. I got myself a copy and a copy for each of my children.

The book is easy to read, pick up and put down, and is very helpful. The grieving process takes much longer than I anticipated and it's good to know that I'm not abnormal!

Format: Paperback
As previous reviewers have noted, this book is written simply, and would be good for children to help them understand the recovery process. It was not much help to me as an adult who has lost my son to suicide. Far better is "No Time to Say Goodbye: Surviving the Suicide of a Loved One", which gives good examples of a wide range of situations and recovery strategies and ideas that worked for real people. Survivors of suicide never believe they will actually survive the shock, betrayal and agony of the event, but they do survive. Books can help, but not simplistic ones that treat the survivor as a brainless, reasonless child. I was a bit angry after reading Jennie Wright's book because it was full of platitudes and generalizations -- not to mention multiple grammatical errors. Even the format, in a casual, childlike typefont, announces this to be a very light treatment of a very heavy subject. If you are seeking this book for children, perhaps you might want to consider it; for adults, there is far better help out there. I would not recommend this one.

Solid information to help you through the grief journey. Used with "The Bright Side of Death" by Dario D"Angelo. Read roughly the first third of this guidebook which was very helpful before stopping to read Mr D'Angelo's book, which for me made my loss easier to accept and continue to process the information in the guidebook more thoroughly. My loss is very recent and I am still in the process of grieving, but continuing to move forward.

I've had to deal with the tragic loss of both of my parents dying this year. This book really does help a person put things into perspective. I only wish there was a little more to the book..., like other people sharing their stories. But it sure was informative.

Great book for someone who is grieving and do not know which way to turn. I did bring all of my emotions in perspective. I thought I was losing my mind for a while. Worth recomending to anyone who has suffered a loss of a love one.

The narrative was written so that it was easy to understand. It provided a good compass through the grief process.
