Book Description

Originally written for authors who were trying to earn a living through their creativity while emotionally devastated, this short book has been updated for anyone facing the death or loss of a loved one–and trying to figure out how to keep moving forward. The book covers the definition of grief, the expected length of mourning, the unexpected emotions and reactions, dealing with “stupid” (though well-intended) comments, and many tips for coping with the pain that comes with loss.

WORKING THROUGH GRIEF: TIPS FOR COPING WITH THE PAIN OF LOSS has been used by support groups, grief counselors, and religious organizations to help their members and clients find some measure of peace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brief Yet Poignant May 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I can't imagine anybody being able to successfully write about any self-help topic without having experienced the issue themselves, but after reading this book I am certain that the author truly knows what she's talking about. I liked how early on the author is very straightforward about dealing with grief not later, but right now. As someone who has experienced losing someone, I know that denial is not the wisest route to take in order to deal with the pain of loss. The author confirms this in her brief yet poignant message.

I particularly appreciated how Ms. Tedder was able to simultaneously define grief and not put it in a box or limit its meaning in the process. After all, the grieving process is something that is different for everyone. It is a personal journey. Whether you have lost someone recently or it's been years, this book can help you face your demons and provide you with practical tips such as how to deal with insensitive and tasteless comments.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short book on coping with grief January 2, 2012
By Jessica
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was suspiscious when the summary said the book addresses how long someone is expected to mourn. It was free (for a limited time) and I'm a hospice social worker, so I "bought" it to make sure it didn't say anything that may hurt someone grieving. There were no reviews so I figured I'd take a peak.

I found solid, common-sense information witten in a compassionate way. It is full of little stories of how people express their grief. There is still a small bend toward helping writers who are grieving, but for the most part it has general information and tips. I think anyone grieving would feel supported by this book - it may not tell them anything new but it would reinforce what they are experiencing and not make them feel ashamed or alone.

I know "book-length" is a relative term, and I don't think reviews should harp on the price (Who am I to tell a writer how much their book is worth?), but this is a really short book. It says "short" in the description, but to be clear, this is probably only around a third to a half of a traditional, book-length book. Therefore, I'd personally expect to pay somewhere around a third to a half of the cost of a usual book.
