But not to be too negative, it was certainly an interesting reading for me, I enjoyed it and it again reminded me some of the basics, which you need to turn into day in day out to stay on a reasonable path, so that at the end of your life you just do not regret that your time on earth was wasted on unimportant things. Sharing of that aspect is certainly something the author did very well.
I must admit though that the sections where she goes into the details of where she was moving from and why, what people did, what things look like made me look the focus sometimes, I skipped those sections until the parts where she talks about her clients, that's where the message was, at least for me.
The main conclusion is what I think is THE most important thing to grasp and live - for all of us: to be happy. Bronnie does that masterfully. First, through sharing her experiences with people who realized they are going to die soon and then by telling us her own very painful story, at the end of which she emerged triumphant. She weavs her story slowly yet powerfully. I highly recommend this book to anyone.
As she listened to her patients, the author began to perceive the repeated recurrence of the same five regrets. This realization affected Ms. Ware so much that she decided to write a book of her findings. Not only does she tell of the patients themselves, their personalities and former lives, but she also applies their teachings to her own life. Being with them gave her courage to be true to herself.
In other words, the dying helped her live more fully.
Reading Ware’s book and pondering its contents could help anyone struggling to find the courage to make some needed changes in his or her life. While the five regrets might sound like psychobabble to some people, there’s actually quite a bit of overlap between Ware’s findings and those of developmental psychologists.
Worth your time .. just be aware ..
