    Life Lessons

    Elisabeth Kubler-Ross and David Kessler write an amazing journey through death! What lessons this can bring to each of us! Each providing insight through their experiences, assists the reader in working through their own beliefs. This book will impact you emotionally. It is very well written! Each chapter easily read and is presented as a lesson with a theme such as living authentically, dealing with anger, releasing guilt, facing fear and learning to surrender. The chapters are as powerful on their own as they are if we read them cover-to-cover. It is very useful for our live lives to its fullest.
    This book is very easy to understand. The author used a lot of true examples of our lives to explain the definition of the live. For example, meet the car accident, gets the disease, and face the challenge, this situations usually happen and relate to us. The author gives us the advice how to reduce the mental obstructs. They shared their experiences how to deal with the death and dying. Second, in the book, it told us what the most important thing in our lives is. It's live life without regret, without fear, with inner peace. It helps us to set up the plan step by step to build our beautiful future. It helps us see that things happen for a reason. It really touches my emotional source. The author told us learning giving and receiving the love. From this viewpoint, we can realize love is the source of the happiness. Finally, learning forgiveness also is the important part of the book. That is the best way to heal wound. Highly recommend this spiritual read.

    Life Altering

    Just finished the first read through. No skipping around or skimming. I've come to the conclusion that this is a book that goes beyond reading. It should be studied at length! It is my intention to do just that. This time I'll be marking crucial (to me) passages with a highlighter, to go back and reference later. I have a paperback copy but will be adding the digital version to my readers soon!

    Losing my oldest son, Ryan, very suddenly and unexpectedly at the age of 28 to pulmonary embolism September 3, 2011 sent my world spinning out of control. This book and others by K¿bler-Ross and Kessler brought sanity, serenity, tranquilty and peace to a life turned on it's ear by tragic loss. I highly recommend this book to anyone coming out of the "Why did this happen?" phase of grieving and entering into the "Where do I go from here?" phase of living on!

    Inspired words of God???

    I give this book as a gift to all those for which I do premarital counseling.....If a god continues to inspire writers on how to live a happy, productive life, this would be a good example....certainly makes much more sense than anything you may find in the bible!!!

    A must-read

    Life Lessons is an absolute must read for people who enjoy self-reflection. The lessons focus on every aspect of living. Many stories are shared within the lessons which help the reader to get different perspectives other than their own.
