Review

`[P]rovides a good introduction to the study of death, dying and bereavment' - Martality

`This second edition, which has also been edited by Samson Katz, utilizes around half of the original text, of which a significant portions has been revised and updated. The remainder comprises new material reflecting both the changes in attitudes generally towards death and dying, and also designed to meet the needs of students undertaking the revised curriculum of the K260. This book will stimulate thinking and challenge the personal views of both academics and those in practice. …[A] valuable tool for both those new to the area of palliative and cancer care and those experienced professionals searching for a new angle on several key topics in relation to ethical issues occurring in this speciality… [A]n excellent balance of theoretical contents and moving prose… [T]his book is directed towards all professionals working in health and social care. …This book is a must for pre-registration students wishing to gain greater understanding of the psychosocial issues faced by those with a terminal illness and their significant others' - Nurse Education Today

`It brings together the knowledge and skills from a multi-occupational group and thereby offers and opportunity, to whoever reads it, to enable better experiences for those who are dying and bereaved' - Journal of Interprofessional Care

Format: Paperback
I would not have read this book if I had not been required to do so by the Open University course which I am studying. But you do not have to do the course to read this book. It is an anthology of short articles and extracts from other books on the themes in the book's title. The book can be 'dipped-into' at random. The book contains articles from people like the very courageous columnist John Diamond, about his diagnosis and consequent outlook on the little life he had left to live. Some of the articles contain information from factual or medical viewpoints, many of the articles are personal accounts and can be very moving to read. One such is the extract from 'Tuesday with Morrie' by Mitch Albom. Having read this I ordered the book straight away as I had to read the full story. This book will help the reader to understand death, dying and bereavement a little more through the experiences(often painful)of others. Anyone who is going to die, is dying or has experienced bereavement in their life should read this book. That just about includes everyone. I highly recommend it.

This was a book I chose to review for a CRUSE course I was taking. I am a nurse, working a great deal with palliative and end of life care and with the bereaved, The book was straight forward, easy to read and perfect for my type of work. Best book of its type I have bought!

A very good and unsombre resource. 27 Feb. 2005
By S. Hebbron - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I used this book as part of the course it was intended to be a componant of (an Open University course on bereavement).

However I would suggest it is infnitely more useful than that, while it does operate form a very a British perspective, it does cover aspects of bereavemnt that are doubtless universal.

It is a great resource for helping those in need, it offers words, theories, thoughts and experiences of great wisdom and breadth. It could prove a source of comfort and healing and would be a great resoucre for caring, religious and voluntary professions.

Looks at aspects of death/dying and bereavement from a variety of perspectives - e.g. experiential/theoretical/sociological an all round perspective.
