Editorial Reviews

"The insight presented here into various aspects of death and surviving grief is based on a study in East London. Comments presented come mainly from those who have coped despite impending death, and those in a similar situation may find these experiences comforting."-Abstracts in Social Gerontology: Currnet Literature on Aging, December 1997 Vol.40 NO.4 "There are four ways to approach death: the rational, the spiritual, the humorous and the poetic. This book . . . adopted all four . . . an extraordinary mixture of sociological inquiry, philosophical speculation and guidance for the dying and the bereaved."-Dr. Murray Parkes, London Hospital Medical College
