Format: Paperback
Donn Weinholtz's book is an extraordinary exploration of how his family copes with death and dying. From his sister and mother to his father and sister-in-law, death did not paralyze the Weinholtz family rather it served to solidify already strong and loving relationships. Throughout this true story, one message becomes clear - family love and respect supports the tough decisions that occur in every family. This book serves as a wonderful example for every family and for any reader.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Bill Taylor on March 14, 2002
Format: Paperback
As a psychiatrist, I've learned to control my emotions... most of the time. Or at least sometimes. When I'm reading, I don't often laugh aloud and I never cry--until I read "Longing to Live...Learning to Die." Donn Weinhortz had me crying and laughing, more times than I can remember, with his deeply felt family story of love, hope, humor, frustration, acceptance of illness, struggles with death. If I could use only one book to teach young therapists how resiliency sustains a healthy family, I'd choose this one. "Longing to Live...Learning to Die" ought to take its place alongside another classic, Scott Peck's "The Road Not Taken," as the book you reread when the going gets tough and the tough need hope.
Thank you, Donn!

i bought the book because i wanted to know more about the author's mother whose paintings I own.
It is also a great book to come to grips with one's mortality and end of life issues.

Format: Paperback
Donn Weinholtz, pulls on your heartstrings with his wit and understanding of relationships. The interactions in his family when facing the death of those who are loved engenders another kind of courage. The courage we all need to let go of those who are dying and to cling to those who are not. As a clergyman I am often called to minister to the mournful, I am better at that now because of the insight I gained from "Longing to live....".
