A one-of-a-kind book that shows how grief can be transformed into a prescription for happiness and personal fulfillment.

We will all experience the loss of a loved one sometime during our lives. This unique guide reveals how to turn this time of sadness into an opportunity for positive change and growth.

Jill Brooke shows how to cope with grief and how to use it as a springboard for greater achievement and happiness. Although they are no longer physically with us, we can keep our loved ones emotionally and spiritually close by incorporating their memories into our daily lives. Not only can we draw comfort from their sustaining presence, but we can have a positive impact on those around us. Recent research has shown that the trauma of loss can stimulate creativity which, in turn, leads to new opportunities for happiness and success. Rosie O'Donnell, Bill Cosby, Paul McCartney, and Katie Couric are just a few of the people in this book who have coped with loss in unique and special ways.

Including tips on how to preserve our memories, create lasting family histories, and reach out to others, Don't Let Death Ruin Your Life shows how the experience of grieving helps us to heal, learn, and grow. Filled with gentle guidance and practical advice, this indispensable handbook takes readers on a journey that will motivate, inspire, and transform their lives.
