Read full description of the books:
One of the best non-fiction books I've read in a while.
Contains simple yet deep lessons we have to learn in our time. The main message is a well-known one, it is not tragic to die, it is tragic to never fully live, and to be dead inside while still living.
The chapters in here what to prevent living in an inauthentic way, without knowing yourself, with being what you truly are, or doing what you truly want, without finding the true meaning of your life. But, this is not a new age book, and nothing is sugar-coated. The book doesn't contain a special formula or way of thinking that will provide you with life without pain or sickness, but it does put a whole new perspective on suffering, one that can help you endure the storms that are a normal part of your life, accept what you can't change, and change what you can. I love the style of the book, the writing is simple, yet profound, and the lessons are interwind with author's personal stories about their patients, people they knew, themselves. It doesn't get boring or loses tempo for a second.
If you want to look back at the end and be satisfied with how you lived in any given circumstances, if you want to live to the fullest, if you what have no regrets, and be in peace with yourself and the people around you, if you always want to feel inner freedom and love, this is the book for you. I don't recommend this book just as a doctor working in palliative care, I recommend this book as a person and human being. Will re-read it in the future.

Read information about the authorElisabeth Kübler-Ross, M.D. was a Swiss-born psychiatrist, a pioneer in Near-death studies and the author of the groundbreaking book On Death and Dying (1969), where she first discussed what is now known as the Kübler-Ross model. In this work she proposed the now famous Five Stages of Grief as a pattern of adjustment. These five stages of grief are denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. In general, individuals experience most of these stages, though in no defined sequence, after being faced with the reality of their impending death. The five stages have since been adopted by many as applying to the survivors of a loved one’s death, as well.
She is a 2007 inductee into the National Women’s Hall of Fame. She was the recipient of twenty honorary degrees and by July 1982 had taught, in her estimation, 125,000 students in death and dying courses in colleges, seminaries, medical schools, hospitals, and social-work institutions. In 1970, she delivered the The Ingersoll Lectures on Human Immortality at Harvard University, on the theme, On Death and Dying.
