Editorial Reviews

Review

As our publication focuses on the necessity for and impact of deathcare memorials, I found this to be an extremely insightful analysis on the intriguing relationship between the departed, the family and friends who remain, and memorialization. And, putting life into perspective in this way truly is a magificant self-discovery. --Donald A. Mounce, APR --Editor, Monument Builders New (MBNews)

The authors are so full of themselves!! The grammar is incorrect in many segments, making it a painful read. Plus, the topics discussed are pulled from other sources with limited credit given. If you are considering a purchase, save your money as you wouldn't want to waste it on this! I understand there's a 2nd book in the works. Two editions of lightweight, "poor pop psychology' SAVE YOUR MONEY!!! You could enjoy a good meal or lots of coffee at the barista instead!

I thought that Don & Duane did a great job of tying their really world experiences and life lessons into a act now self discovery book. I feel that their material did a great job to remind/motivate me to make a list of things that I want to change now or in the near future. It also did a wonderful job of reminding me that life does not always deal us a great hand of cards, but we can work thought it.

A bit unusual as this review is written in the words of my sister and owner of the book who is not a user of the Internet, but with my assistance wanted her comments shared.
It usually takes me more than a day to read a book, but for "Dance With The Elephant" was a non stop read for me. The author's have a gift from God with their writing style . This book would help anyone in grief to understand how others handle theirs, what trials they have gone through.

A quick read with thought provoking questions and insight into some of the topics we rather not discuss. Both Don and Duane have a way of sharing their story and getting us to ask ourselves where am I, and how did I get here. I would recomend this book to anyone who wants to better understand who they really are.
