Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I received this book as a gift from my mother's best friend after I was laid off from my job of 14 years. She said it helped her cope with the loss of her sister. I was skeptical at first because I didn't realize I was experiencing grief and loss. Page after page I found myself connecting to Dr. Coleman's words and stories. He helped me through this very difficult transition period by giving me a new perspective on my present situation and my goals. I recommend this book to anyone experiencing any type of loss or transition in life, and want to find a way to feel happy again.
