When I first began reading this book, it struck me that there was no emotional connection between the writer and the subject - it was written from a 'bereavement specialist's point of view with absolutely no real depth of feeling put into it and I felt totally patronized by it! It appears to me that the author, who has obviously spent many years training for this type of work, and has written this book, which for me, would be more suited to those who are also training to become breavement specialists, as I did not feel the author was writing from their own experiences, just drawing on others experiences, spouting 'medical terms' at every turn and if anything for me, completely insults the reader who will be going through a very traumatic experience.
I threw this book out in the end - Do I recommend it: for those suffering a loss - No! For those studying death and bereavement - definately.
