    1. For hospice workers, social workers and therapists working with people where death is clearly imminent, this is an excellent read. The authors have divided the book into three sections which I found useful. Section one is history and background information on the dying process from several traditions, and a proposed approach that has served the authors well. As a therapist working with a terminal cancer client I appreciated the history and their suggestions made sense. Section two contains case [...]


    2. Somewhat useful in its synthesis of the universality of cultural books on death and dying and transition to the afterlife. Most of the stories (9) were touching in regard to "good deaths"Richard told us in a workshop that he wanted to include 9 more stories on "painful deaths", but that the publisher did not believe a book including these stories would sell (a wonderul reminder of our culture's denial of death and paralysis in the adolescent psychic fantasy of immortality and glorification of yo [...]


    3. I've never read a book like this one before. It was accessible, well organized and interesting. I found the personal narratives compelling and beautiful. Lots to ponder and to return to in the future.


    4. A wonderful book, well-written, full of information and compassion. Really useful information as I think about what I have to offer others in the dying process. I'll keep this as a top 10 resource for sure.


    5. Richard Groves gives a simple and powerful resource for families facing end-of-life issues. I highly recommend this for any professionals who work in the end-of-life or grief fields.


    6. Everyone should read this book. It helps a person understand how to clear spiritual pain to make the physical pain of death less intense. I learned a lot in this book.


    7. Great book with many teachings on what we can learn from the sick and dying. Personal and tearful stories that I learned a lot from.
