Format: Paperback
When my darling lab mix died recently, I bought several books on pet loss grief recovery and this one helped me the most.

What helped me about this book were two things, which I'll mention first, and then explain. Those two things are:

1. The workbook questions.

2. The unique, balanced tone of this book.

Now I'll explain:

The workbook questions - This is a highly interactive book. You don't just read it passively. At first I thought the questions would hurt too much to do (one of the questions has you write the story of how you came to choose your pet above all others), but as I wrote out my answers to them, I felt better. I also felt happy as so many wonderful memories of my dog flooded back to me through the tears.

The unique, balanced tone - The other books I read seemed either too uncaring or -- at the opposite extreme -- too sad. Instead "How to ROAR" is written by a highly empathetic author who also helps you to work through the grief and get to "acceptance" stage (and beyond) at the other side.

In conclusion, if you've lost your pet (or know someone who has), get Robin Jean Brown's book. It will help to work through the pain and heartache.

Losing Marvin, my frisky Siamese cat, was extremely painful for me. He'd been my baby for almost 10 years. He was the sort of cat who'd always follow you around the house and would sleep on your bed.

I bought several books on pet bereavement, and while they were all good, this one was the best. I wrote out my answers to the Journaling Questions, and as I went through the book, I felt my pain subside and give rise to something new: a feeling of acceptance and an ability to focus on the happy memories of Marvin. I highly recommend this book for those suffering from the sadness of losing a pet.

this was a gift for my mother. She lost her beloved Beaux san in May. She said although the questions were hard to answer-it helped her work through her grief. She said since it is a work book-it forces you to remember and write down info regarding your pets death, which has been very helpful in helping her come through this very difficult time. Beaux San wasnt just a pet. he was a very loved part of our family. If you need help with the loss of one of your "family members" this is the book for you.

When I first saw the title ROAR i was turned me off as I had just lost my beloved Benji. However, as I read the reviews and learned the author's definition of ROAR - it then made sense. While I did not write in my copy I did use it as a guide in my journaling.

Several years ago, my wife and I bought the book after the passing of our Weimaraner. We were both affected, but wife especially. The book is not just about one-way communication -- telling you stuff. It has useful exercises and forms, and is a good handbook. For those suffering the loss of a beloved pet, I would recommend this workbook.

This is a very sensitive book for someone who has lost a pet. I would highly recommend for children or adults. The message is gentle yet very powerful.

I had just lost my beloved Sheltie at 11 years old when I ordered this book. It helped me work through my grief. I was really, really attached to Nathan and it was extremely difficult to loose him so suddenly. I had no time to say goodbye. This helped assuage some of the misguided guilt I had. It also convinced me that I should get another dog. I waited about five months but have another wonderful rescued Westie named Riley. He too is a fantastic companion. I ordered this book and had it sent to my cousin when she lost a dog also. She wasn't ready to read it immediately but did later and commented how much it helped her.
