Overview

Staring at the Sun: Overcoming the Terror of Death by Irvin D. Yalom

Written in Irv Yalom's inimitable story-telling style, Staring at the Sun is a profoundly encouraging approach to the universal issue of mortality. In this magisterial opus, capping a lifetime of work and personal experience, Dr. Yalom helps us recognize that the fear of death is at the heart of much of our anxiety. Such recognition is often catalyzed by an "awakening experience"—a dream, or loss (the death of a loved one, divorce, loss of a job or home), illness, trauma, or aging.

Once we confront our own mortality, Dr. Yalom writes, we are inspired to rearrange our priorities, communicate more deeply with those we love, appreciate more keenly the beauty of life, and increase our willingness to take the risks necessary for personal fulfillment.

This book helped me to live in the moment, and face the issue of my death. I bought a number of copies of this book to give to friends and relatives who have issues with death-don't we all?.

Good in many ways but does apply to the general populace unless you have no religion or spirituality while i do not believe in the christian view of heaven and hell and i do take more eastern view on death i still think the best book on death is a simple prose/art book called the next place i go simple and loving and peaceful
