Simple to read; almost simplistic but at least somewhat helpful. The book is a collection of case histories with commentary. If you have lost someone, and aren't inclined to struggle with complex concepts and academic language, this is the book for you. ( )

Profound ... I read this shortly after my daughter died and it was a fantastic guide to the intricate, complicated, uncertain world of grief. God Bless Elizabeth Kubler Ross! ( )

Reinforces that my thoughts and feelings as I deal with grief are not unusual or odd. Everyone's grief is unique but there are some common threads and feelings to be aware of. Very helpful. ( )

I read On Grief and Grieving for a couple of reasons. One, my husband and I have experienced a handful of significant losses in the past two years and we’re both still dealing with the effects of that. Our grief counselor suggested this book. Two, I’m writing a novel in which the main characters deal with a huge loss (art imitating life?) and I wanted more insight into how grief works and how different people grieve. It’s a great book, full of information that will shed light on an often-confusing darkness and help you feel less alone. Grief is a strange animal and this book is all about embracing that fact and being patient with the process. I plan to keep this book on the shelf for future hard times. I know it will come in handy.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0743266293, Paperback)

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.

"In her first, seminal book, On Death and Dying, Elisabeth Kubler-Ross identified five stages of dying: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance. In the years that followed, it became evident that these stages applied not only to the process of accepting death, but also to accepting other difficult and catastrophic life experiences, such as losing a loved one." "In her final book, On Grief and Grieving, completed shortly before her death, Kubler-Ross and Life Lessons co-author David Kessler revisit the five stages in order to create a deeply empathetic and accessible guide for those left behind. With compassion and understanding, the authors deliver insights and advice designed to help readers rebalance their lives and find the courage to continue."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
