My father died very suddenly in September, and I spent much of October and November all but inhaling every book on grief and grieving I could find. This was one of the best. Dr. Kubler-Ross is clear, concise in her language, full of empathy and understanding, and outlines the many ways in which grief is hard at first, then harder still later on. Her words were a great comfort to me and I recommend this book highly to those who are grieving.
Ross' book provides reassurance in both outlining the stages of grief and providing stories of others who have gone through the process and come out the other side. I can't express with mere words how important this is. When you're in the 'valley of the shadow of death' you really do think you're going insane. To find out that what you're going through is both normal and healing makes all the difference. I had always though the 'shadow of death' meant going through something frightening, well, fearing for one's own life is a walk in the park compared with dealing with the death of someone you love.
We all can use help going through grief and its inevitable stages. This wonderful book lays it out and gives hope that no only is the pain normal but that it will end and the sun can and will shine in our lives once again. I wish I could have found this book sooner, but it has still helped immensely.
