"Widowed husbands with children - a double whammy - long neglected and dealt here with extraordinary sensitivity and much-needed guidance, helpful for both the men who live on and those who know and love them."
- Jane E Brody, Personal Health columnist, New York Times
"Filled with emotionally poignant, tear-inducing vignettes of real men confronting the loss of their spouses, this book enlightens us about how to approach grief and the grieving. This is a book of immense wisdom and tenderness that will touch everyone and make us more caring friends and family when we confront death and the survivors of death."
-Ezekiel Emanuel, MD, PhD, oncologist, bioethicist, senior fellow at the Center for American Progress
"This story of seven men who have suffered profound loss yet help each other to deal with unavoidable issues fills an important need for those who may find it difficult to cope yet difficult to seek help."
-Tom Insel, MD, former director, National Institute of Mental Health
This powerful book opens up the raw but honest thoughts and feelings-and difficult conflicts-of a group of fathers willing to bare their souls to each other and now to us as readers. I hope that anyone who is struggling with such a loss will become a "virtual group" member and gain insights from their experiences.
-Jimmie Holland, MD, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center
"I absolutely loved this book. Rosenstein and Yopp's ability to expertly weave personal narratives with their professional expertise makes this required reading for anyone who has or will experience a loss. That is to say, every single person on the planet."
-Matt Logelin, author of the New York Times Bestseller, Two Kisses for Maddy

Beyond clearly offering guideposts for bereaved fathers, anyone who has suffered the loss of a loved one, anyone who has ever wondered "will this ever get better," will learn from THE GROUP. And, more broadly, anyone who is a parent, no matter the age of their children,will cling to the idea of the "good enough" parent and the honest fact that "adults don't always get things right on the first try."
Reading THE GROUP has made a difference in my life. Thank you to the brave men who shared their heartfelt stories.
Our book club is looking forward to reading The Group as it will certainly stimulate engaging discussion. To learn how these men faced such an unexpected life change and were able to heal & grow is deeply inspiring.
Congratulations to the authors and the original 7 on making new pathways for widowed fathers to seek help & for sharing a part of their difficult journey and their lives reimagined. This is truly monumental work.
I resonated with the "reimagined life" theme. There are many life events that one does not plan for...how could we......
