This book is so easy to read which is important especially in the fist few months after losing your spouse. I lost my husband when I was 44 and he was 47. We were only married for 4 years. This book helped me so much. It was very accurate as to what I was thinking and feeling which was so nice because it made me feel like I was not crazy. I am sorry if you have to but this book, but if you need a book get this this one.

I just want all grieving widows out there under the age of 60 to know that this book is a must read. ON January 2nd 2008 i lost my best friend husband and father of my three children of 16 years tragically and didn't think life would go on. But after reading this book two times consectively I knew that it would be ok. I have since had several good friends also become widowed and have given this book to them as a helper in coping with what we all go thru. I truly beleive that we all love different so we all grieve different but this book shows that we all can learn about grieving in the same way. Great book and a great gift to those that have loved and lost. thanks to the author and to B and N for caring such a great book.

This is by far the best book I've found to help me cope with the sudden, accidental death of my 43 year old husband. We were married for 20 years, and had known each other for almost 28 years. Loosing my best friend and high school sweetheart has been the most traumatic event of my life. My husband was a volunteer fireman, and a safety professional, so in the back of my mind I always feared for his life, but the suddenness of his death left my daughters and I, as well as all who knew him, flattened and lost. When you are young and an widow, you feel so alone in the world, like no one can relate to you. This book hits the spot. This book addresses all manners in which wives are left as widows, illness, accident, murder suicide, etc. It gives comfort and lets you know that you as a widow will go through this in a manner different from other people as you are an individual, and it's all right to deal with it in your own way and in your own time. Just before Christmas I met a woman who had recently lost her husband to cancer. I went home, got my copy of the book and gave it, along with a basket of relaxing bath things, to her as a reminder to take care of herself, and know that she isn't as alone as she feels. This book is meant to be shared.

I am living with the loss of my husband - he was 33 yrs old. This is the only book I came across that talks about the issues younger (20-50ish) people might experience. There are not a lot out there, this one is very comforting. I still page thru it after 5 years.

My Husband aged 45 died 2 Months ago of Cancer and I am trying to go on with Life. 'I'm Grieving as Fast as I Can' reflects thoughts that I have and were unable to acknowledge them. The book is not a 1,2,3 step to Grieving but just makes the other Widows and Widowers feel that they are not alone. Please keep it mind for Friends or Families that might need it.
