A review of his biography of Wilhelm Reich that appeared in The New York Times in 1983, describes Sharaf as "intimate for more than 10 years as student, disciple, patient and colleague" of Reich. Paul Roazen wrote in The Psychoanalytic Review, "Myron Sharaf's Fury on Earth is far and away the finest book both on Reich's work and his life. It is a work of scholarship that may well, until the Reich Archives are finally opened, remain definitive on the subject."
He died of a heart attack in Berlin in 1997, after addressing a conference in Vienna marking Reich's centennial.
