A modern classic text on the crucial role of grieving in dealing with loss, by the author who first explored the now famous five stages of grief—On Grief and Grieving is an invaluable blend of Kubler-Ross’s practical wisdom, case studies, and her own experiences and spiritual insight.
Elisabeth Kübler-Ross’s On Death and Dying changed the way we talk about the end of life. Before her own death in 2004, she and David Kessler completed On Grief and Grieving, which looks at the way we experience the process of grief.
Just as On Death and Dying taught us the five stages of death—denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance—On Grief and Grieving applies these stages to the grieving process and weaves together theory, inspiration, and practical advice, including sections on sadness, hauntings, dreams, isolation, and healing. This is “a fitting finale and tribute to the acknowledged expert on end-of-life matters” (Good Housekeeping).
Wonderful... absolutely wonderful
This has helped me understand why losing my mother hurts so bad and that what I’m going through is normal. This is my grief and my process and no one can force me to get through it except myself
Everyone has or will experience loss...either from death, transitions and things we have no control of...this book is broken down to understand the human emotions that are experienced through grief. There’s so many epiphany and ah-hah moments. It’s definitely a healing/recovery encompassing book. But it’s much more insightful than that. It’s definitely worth it.
This was a great book to get us through the loss of a parent and spouse. It helps you feel like you're not alone feeling the way you do.
