Amazon Review

After experiencing a paralysing stroke in 1995 and facing her own mortality, Elizabeth Kubler-Ross (author of the renowned On Death and Dying) realised she had some unfinished business to take care of. "I wanted to write one more book, not on death and dying, but on life and living", she explains. So she joined forces with co-author David Kessler, a leader in the field of hospice care, and together they wrote about the lessons we can learn about living from those who are dying. As Kessler explains in his Introduction, "The dying have always been teachers of great lessons, for it's when we are pushed to the edge of life that we see most clearly".

In days gone by, the community would have gathering places where children and adults listened to elders tell their stories of life's challenges and the meaning they found in life. In lieu of that kind of extended community, the authors offer this book, filled with stories from the edge. Then, like fireside elders, they weave these personal stories into themes, such as living authentically, the importance of play, finding one's power, loving relationships and self-compassion. One cannot say enough about the lasting value of this beautifully written and carefully rendered book. This is your chance to see life from the 20-20 vision of hindsight. In the end what will we value most? Here are some hints: the days we surrendered and became calm, the times we healed that which was broken, and of course all the moments we opened ourselves to love. --Gail Hudson --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Review

Patricia Devine "The Irish Independent" This is a thought-provoking book, one which in my opinion should be made compulsory. It is insightful, inspirational, intelligent, soothing, emotive, and informative about our seemingly arbitrary existence.
