The classic collection of essays on death, dying, and the afterlife, by Dr. Elisabeth K?Ǭ?bler-Ross. Features a new foreword by Caroline Myss. Previous edition sold more than 200,000 copies. Reviews "I am so grateful that I was given the opportunity to review such ground-breaking material on death and dying. This 85 page gem has made a huge difference in my life. This world renowned author will always be remembered for her clear and accurate account of the 5 stage dying process, and the impact her work has had will echo through the corridors of time. There are many excellent books out on the subject of near death experiences, and life after death experiences, but I had always been curious as I got older what the process of shedding my body suit was all about. Just about the time I thought I would even start looking for a book on the topic I would get a funny feeling in the pit of my stomach and decide maybe it wasn't a good idea after all. I would recommend this gentle honest helper to anyone who has a true desire to learn the many facet of such a natural part of life."-Riki Frahmann www.mysticlivingtoday.com

    Good for the Believer, not the Cynic

    I had read one other book about "near-death" experiences and wanted to try another. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross is practically THE go-to person on this subject so I wanted to read one of her books.<BR/><BR/>Since this book was written well into her career, it's written from the stand point that all she says is FACT. She doesn't waste any time giving reasons why she believes it is fact or trying to prove it's authenticity. But again, at this stage in her career, SHE was already certain that these things were absolutely true so it makes sense she would write as such.<BR/><BR/>That withstanding, there are some very interesting stories and it's an easy read.<BR/><BR/>Just a note: One of the four parts of the book talks specifically about losing one's parents. She speaks mainly to the child or young adult in this chapter, not the middle-aged who has lost his parent at a "normal" age. Just thought I'd mention that since I wasn't aware of that bit before I bought it.

    Great book

    This was a short, but great book. I found it very helpful as a bereaved mother of a young child. It was very comforting to me. I will definitely be reading more of Elizabeth's books.
