Questions & Answers on Death and Dying is an extremely helpful resource to those who are bereaved or are on the cusp of being so. It is also a good introductory book, as was its predecessor-On Death and Dying-to the area of counseling psychology, specifically thanatology, the study of death and dying, for there are many issues in the dying process that are addressed: nonverbal symbolic language, prolongation of life, sudden death, suicide and terminal illness, fear, faith and hope to old age and just plain coping. Encompassed in the very latter, coping-wise, is not simply the patient and family but also the medical staff. The dynamics of dying have a process and to witness a loved one going through that process is obviously painful; it is the agonizing but inevitable hurt that no one wants to go through. But it can and will make the living stronger. This work in particular is helpful in many respects, because it is not necessarily a "how-to" guide on how to grieve or cope; it simply tries to answer the most fundamental and frequently asked questions that people have in respects to death and dying, i.e. emotional and physical pain, loneliness, anger against God and healthy people and finding some caliber of meaningfulness in their life while simultaneously being in the throes of the dying process. The questions asked are sincere, moving and eloquent. The dam of curiosity is opened, and Elizabeth Kubler-Ross eloquently answers all questions, even ones we would not even think of asking.Read more ›

If You ARE a student of thanatology and you're into wanting the smallest of details, you'll love this book!

I found it to be a combination of boring yet extremely interesting at the same time for lack of a better way of explaining it.

As the survivor of a near death (transcendent) experience in 1981, and someone who has spent years as both a grief counselor and an end-of-life counselor working mostly with hospice patients, I found this book to be both fascinating and enlightening.

It's pretty pricey, but the information contained within the pages of this book is very thorough and detailed, and not much has been left to the imagination.

If you're really serious about the study of thanatology then this book is for you, but if you're just seeking a "casual read," you may wish to look elsewhere because it reads like more of a technical manual, and I don't mean that as a mean-spirited comment.

If you don't have the heart or time to read On Death and Dying, these questions and answers will be very helpful in dealing with personal emotions and reactions not to mention understanding the view and feelings of the terminal patient. These approximately 175 pages are well worth reading. I do recommend reading On Death and Dying for an in depth understanding of living and dying in today's culture.

This book has some really good information in it, but there is such a thing as "too much of a good thing" I found it almost boring with the redundant questions and answers. This book could have been half the pages and still good. Good read, but very repetitive.

If you read Dr. Kubler-Ross' book "Living with Death and Dying" this is a great companion book. It explains frequent follow up questions Dr. Kubler-Ross had after her lectures to medical staff and family members dealing with death and dying. Book answers important questions on how to treat terminally ill patients (both adults and children), how to handle sudden or unexpected death due to accident. One learns that many times patients disclose what is on their minds thru a small talk, drawings or occupational therapy. Even bed ridden and seemingly unconscious patients do communicate non-verbally and appreciate small kindness such as talking to them, reading to them, providing them with comfort such as warm cloth bath, warmth, combing their hair. This is a very sensitive book. Although some of the questions are repetitive, I find them to gently re-enforce basic teaching that Dr. Kubler-Ross was trying to convey to both medical staff and general public. Written in simple language with enough situational examples, this book is a great guide for anyone dealing with death or going thru the grieving process.
