Very interesting. I learned a lot on how to deal with pain and extreme situations from this book. I was told years ago to start with chapter 4 read through then go back to read chapters 1, 2 and 3. Why? I don't know but it worked well enough for me.

THE book to read if your feeling like life has lost it's meaning or if you just need something positive and up-lifting to read for a change! :) It can be a bit boring and slow at times... but it's still worth reading!!
Wow! This is a true literary gem depicting the most positive guided steps through living and dying, a natural process similar to puberty that we simply go through, yet it's not the end. I naturally hesitated even picking up such a book, had my doubts about the impact it could possibly have, but was blown away by its "realness" and applicability to daily life. I can only imagine that if you, or someone you know, is actually struggling with accepting death, is afraid of death, or experiencing its sometimes painful onset, this book would heal the spirit and soul, which no drug or medicine can do. This book is literary compassion. Namaste.
