This is a really great short book about how to live with grief. We all come up on a time in life when we have to grieve the loss of someone. Unfortunately, coping techniques aren't taught and the whole process is treated like a a big mystery. Well meaning friends and family members try to push us through it. Sure, we're allowed to take out time to work through it, but we still have to function in the mean time. This book is all about how to recognize what we're felling and get through it while still functioning in our every day life. It's a great resource for anyone that is trying to get through a loss of any kind.

My step father recently passed away in a plane crash. It was sudden and unexpected. While I am military and I have learned my grieving process, it is quite entirely different when it is a family member. While I was able to continue to move through the grieving process this book helped me use the step approach on how to cope and move further through the grieving process. Now this book helped my mother more than anyone else because she lost her husband and was having a hard time grieving. I just shared my library for her and let her read this book on her own to find where she needed to focus and how she needed to help herself without feeling guilty.

While I'm not healing from grief at the moment I think the step by step approach is written in a way that makes it easier to heal. I lost my Grandmother five years ago and this book would have come in handy after she passed. It was a rough time and I think this book would have helped me a lot. I will definitely be keeping it around for future uses and helping others with their grief. I was given this book as part of a promotion, but my review is honest.

I lost my dad a few years ago and I still burst into tears when a certain song plays, or someones voice reminds me of his etc. I know it's just a part of grieving, but I am definitely in the late stages of grieving, so I didn't find this book as helpful. I think the information is great, but I personally didn't find it very helpful for where I am in my grieving process. I didn't like how the book was written for a variety of losses, and not just loved ones, because I would feel like I was relating to what they were saying, then they'd through in a comment about another loss, like losing a job, then I no longer felt like I could relate to the feelings they were describing. But if you've lost someone within a year or two, then I think this would be a great book for you. Very good information and techniques to use.

I found this book to be very helpful. I have gone through different types of grief and never really understood it or handled it very well. I think this book really has some great tips and techniques for handling grief a lot better than I have in the past. There are several different steps to grieving and this book will help you through them.If you or someone you know, is having problems with grieving, I recommend this book.

Grief is a step by step process that you have to deal with emotionally and physically. It is one of the most difficult things that anyone has to go through. In this book it helps guide you  through the steps and what to expect of someone who is grieving.  It also has a great section on advice on getting back to your normal routine, ways to handle those important days like anniversaries, birthdays, etc. and also advice as to whether you should seeking counseling or find support groups. I would recommend this book to anyone who has lost or even those who want a better understand.

For me, now, it is all about chapter 7, the remembering part. Life does go on, but you will always need a few tools in your toolbox for when the grieving process breaks through. I like this guide, it says in a few words what longer books barely manage to convey.

This is a perfect book to give to those who are grieving.  It will help them understand that grief is not the same for everyone,  Grief can last years for some, and months for others.  Not everyone feels grief the same way, or reacts the same.  Just because you aren't going through the steps of grief in order or at all doesn't make you crazy.  This book also explains how to reach out for help if you need it.  Whether a support group or a professional, reaching out may be the best thing you can do for yourself.   Friends and family are also great to reach out to, if they will listen and not judge.  Sometimes it is easier to first talk to a support group or a professional before breaching the subject with your loved ones.  This book includes many activities to help express your natural grieving feelings, as well as reminding you to take care of yourself so you can make the daily living changes needed to move on.   I recommend this book to be given to anyone grieving, no matter what the loss.

If you are grieving or just wanting to relate to someone that is, this book gives good perspective of the feelings that most people go through. It also touches on how to deal with other people trying to help you. If gives ways to deal with feeling such as a journal or writing letters to loved ones.

The book is different from most grief books I've read. It is written to the person suffering the loss. I found it to have lots of great information but a bit wordy. Due to the good formating it is easy to skip past things that do not pertain to you and find something helpful. The book is a quick read. Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book for review purposes, this is my honest opinion.

I never thought that losing a loved one would take such an emotional toll  on me mentally and physically ,  I lost my step-father and my father  with in 4 months of each other , I just trying to process the loss of one and to have it happen again,  I was an emotional wreck,  after reading this book, I understand now why I felt angry, loss of appetite and I wish that  it  was available to me  when I was in a state of mind  of disbelief, I would highly recommend this book to any one who is dealing or has been through any type of grief

The book has 7 chapters in it,  1. Understanding Grief 2. Embracing Your Feelings  3. Reaching Out 4. Rebuilding Your Routine  5. Exploring New Terrain  6. Facing the Future  7. Remembering Reading through each chapter made me realize that grieving is a process and everyone handles it differently. While losing some one very close can be a real pain and reading a book may not be helpful, in that case I would suggest going for a professional help, as does the book suggest too. I know that if I had lost someone very very close to my heart I would have not been able to pick up the book to read. But if you are the one supporting someone grieving it is really helpful, as it will make you understand them and help them though the process.

Having gone through the grief og my mother-in-law passing 6 years ago and having to help my husband get through it, this book was a great eye-opener. I wish I would have had it then for him to read. There is a lot of great info to help you deal with any kind of grief and to help you feel like you are not alone. I would recommend it in a heartbeat.

This was a much needed book for me. One of my favorite parts is the ten myths and misconceptions about grief, everyone is different and this book helped me to see dealing with grief for a longer length of time doesn't make me weak. We all handle things differently. I enjoyed the ideas to help morn the loss a little easier and to share feelings when you may hold them back as I often do. If you experienced loss this book has been very helpful to me and it is a good easy read.

This book explains and walks you through the different way of dealing with your grief. The different signs that can make you aware if someone may need help.  This book was so helpful to me and I didn't even think I needed help dealing with things that have happened in my life. From the loss of a dear friend, divorce,  job loss and moving to a different state. This is a very helpful book - I think this is a must read for everyone.

This book had good tools for dealing with loss. It didn't get too heavy or hard to get through and it had a lot of helpful advice. It's well set up and walks you through the basics. It's not a quick fix type of book at all, but a well thought out basic guide. I received this book for free and it arrived at a point in time where it was just what I needed.

This is an amazing book for anyone to read if they have been through a loss. This book has personally helped me and I really enjoyed the tips that they gave. They got me through a really tough time. The best thing about this book though has to be the activities that they give you to help the healing process. It also mad the reader take a proactive approach to towards their healing and kept them on a positive track. I would recommend this book to anyone who has been through the pain of a loss in their lives.

An absolute must-read for everybody who has ever experienced grief.  Finally, the state of mourning  is legitimized; we can stop feeling ashamed  about the enormous pain of our loss. When  I realized I had no choice but to allow my beloved rabbit to be put 'to sleep', my own suffering was just beginning.    Looking back, there would have been much less drama if I had been able to  read this 'grieving guide' during the following year.

The book “Grief Healing Techniques: Step By Step Support for Working Through Grief and Loss”, was a great read. This book opened up my understanding more to some of the things that I was and was not aware of. It gave me a greater understanding for coping with grief and the various techniques and actions that can be taken to assist in the healing process after experiencing grief and loss in my life.

This is the sort of book to give anyone who has been confronted by a death -- it would be a helpful and thoughtful gesture if you know someone who, a few weeks or months after the event, is still suffering badly and needs a wise, well-written book on the subject. It is full of tips and written in a reassuring, mature writing style.

Speaking to a breadth of understanding and compassion, this guide brings solace to us when we’re in most need of empathic insight.  Directly involving readers into the process of their own healing, this narrative engagingly holds each person responsible for their own evolution as they address grief best suited to where they happen to be.   Perhaps the single greatest resource here exemplifies that no one mode of being is superior.  Rather, it appropriately advises unveiling that unique path resonating with the most fervor, thereby providing individuals with a maximum forum for managing growth amidst heartache and disappointment.
