5 stars because this book helped me more than any other book to wrap my head around my 28 year old son's sudden, unexpected death. There are no easy answers but the information imparted in this book helps me to re-establish my belief that good begets good. I was privileged to see my son grow into... ...more

I was really hopeful that this was going to be an excellent book, but, sadly it was far from it. I was looking for a little something less "preachy". Most of it was long and drawn out and I had a hard time getting passed the first chapter. ...more

Life after death will always be a mystery. The author claims to have studied thousands of cases which probe the scientific base of life after death. In each case she described, I was able to come up with counter-arguments, doubts or questions about their veracity. In reality, I don't know if life... ...more

This book is a comfort. Sure hope Kubler-Ross is right about all this ...more

As another reviewer observed, this isn't well-written. When I realized, as others have, that it is a series of essays or lectures, I could picture her standing before a group of people talking. That made more sense. In any case, I found it reassuring regarding the near-death experiences. Other pa... ...more

Published posthumously, these are some of Kübler-Ross's last essays and lectures. Her strongest emphasis was on her scientific belief that we are met and ushered through death by our deceased loved ones. She points out that when dying children are asked who they want with them in death they alway... ...more

I really liked this book. it should help with my own book about heaven in some ways. Kubler ross was there when some of the concentration camp victims, recently emancipated, were coming to a death from their months of starvation. she has sat next to hundreds of people through their death and near... ...more

This slim volume (85 pages), with a new foreword by Caroline Myss, holds four powerful essays by Kubler-Ross: Living and Dying; Death Does Not Exist; Life, Death, and Life after Death; and Death of a Parent. In contrast to her more clinical On Death and Dying, this book is a heartfelt look beyond... ...more

I got this book to try to be as ready to be as supportive and understanding as I can for family members dealing with a death, but found that I needed it too. Beautiful, beautiful way of seeing death. If this isn't the correct one, I don't care! It feels so healing and RIGHT to me, I'm going with... ...more

I picked this up, on a whim, off my office mate's bookshelf, and I'm glad I did. Five stars for the first essay; three or four stars for the other three essays, only because they are a bit repetitive and because Dr. Ross goes a bit off the deep end... Overall, very good though. ...more
