This book is written with great care, compassion and knowledge a
This book is written with great care, compassion and knowledge and was very helpful to me in coping with the deaths of my parents and other losses I have had since then. Dr. Leary writes from the heart, without judgment, and demonstrates that she understands the pain and confusion that the process of dying brings to the living. She also convinced me that death is not a horrible, fearful event, but part of a normal and necessary part of life. Not only do I fear my own death less after reading her book, I feel better able to cope with loss and grief in general. I recommend this book for everyone, because even if you or a loved one isn't facing death now, they will be eventually.

Great Book on how to understand death and more
I bought this book because I was hoping to volunteer at the hospice. Before I could even get commited to do so I have to learn to cope with someone dying in my family. Maybe I should say (like the author mentionned in the book) : "Someone is living with terminal illness instead of dying from a terminal illness." This book has been really helpful in knowing what to say in helping the fear of dying to reassure the one facing death. It also helps you cope and understand the greiving process. I really think that "No One Has to Die Alone" that's the title that got my attention to buy the Nook book in the first place. I want to be there for my family, but also for those who don't have family members with them during this transition to a new life. A great book for anyone interested to learn about death and how to help the dying in their lives.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
