“A heartfelt and practical guide for caring when it really matters.” (Sheryl Sandberg, author of Lean In)
“This book is a gift. It’s the wonderful crash course in Humanity 101 that none of us got to take in school. Without judgment, and with humor and compassion, this book shows you how to show up as the best possible version of yourself when it matters most.” (Elizabeth Gilbert, New York Times bestselling author of Eat, Pray, Love and Big Magic)
“This book makes complicated things simple and helps us say to each other what we’re dying to say. When I hand it to my friends, they’ll laugh, cry and breathe easier. The realness and support in these pages feels like oxygen in a world suffocating from shininess and formality.” (Glennon Doyle Melton, #1 New York Times Bestselling author of Love Warrior and Carry On, Warrior)
“This book has fundamentally changed how I approach helping and caring for others. Compassion and creativity literally leap off the page. It’s full of sage advice on how to be a better friend, colleague, family member, and partner to those who are suffering.” (Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take and Originals)
“At last, a book for the vast swath of us who really care but don’t know how to show it sometimes. Kelsey and Emily made this enormous and complex issue accessible and so wonderfully helpful. It’s just right for any human being who ever plans on being close to another.” (BJ Miller, MD Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine at UCSF)

I really like the book and the style. The insights offered are very helpful for being there for people going through tough times. Honestly, it is also helpful for someone who is going through a tough time to help understand why some people disappear.
The only reason why I can't give this a 5 star is because the formatting of the kindle edition just doesn't work with the kindle. Many of the special charts (like the Empathy Menu) are unreadable with text going off the screen (and no way to scroll to it). Additionally, navigating when an entire page is just a chart is painful.
If you are interested in growing in empathy and compassion, or if you have a close friend or family member who was recently diagnosed with an illness or has suffered a traumatic loss, I highly recommend "There Is No Good Card For This: what to say and do when life is scary, awful, and unfair to people you love" by Kelsey Crowe, Ph.D. and Emily McDowell. I bought mine from Emily McDowell's website which you can click into straight from her Instagram profile bio.
