On Death and Dying by Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

One of the most important psychological studies of the late twentieth century, On Death and Dying grew out of Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross's famous interdisciplinary seminar on death, life, and transition. In this remarkable book, Dr. Kübler-Ross first explored the now-famous five stages of death: denial and isolation, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. Through sample interviews and conversations, she gives the reader a better understanding of how imminent death affects the patient, the professionals who serve that patient, and the patient's family, bringing hope to all who are involved.

This book shares how dying people teach us to care for their soul. It is a book that reminds us to see people as sacred human beings, and not, a disease. As you read this book, I hope you take the time to ponder the teachings of the dying. Dying people have much to teach us about what is important in life. Read, learn, and heal.

The book wasen't what I expected it to be. It is written from a different angel than I thought it would be. But it was very helpful.I feel it would help anyone dealing with a loved one that has been diagnosed with an advanced fatal disease. I would definity recommend this to anyone dealing with a situation of this kind.

This is a great book for anyone entering the medical field. Ross teaches the readers how to have compassion for dying patients and the importance of recognizing the process of grief. Also, it forces readers to accept the inevitability of caring for a dying patient.
