Each one of us at some point asks this question. The tragedy is not that life is short, but that we often see only in hindsight what really matters.
In this, her first book on life and living, Elisabeth Kübler-Ross joins with David Kessler to guide readers through the practical and spiritual lessons we need to learn so that we can live life to its fullest in every moment. Many years of working with the dying have shown the authors that certain lessons come up over and over again. Some of these lessons are enormously difficult to master but even the attempts to understand them can be deeply rewarding. Here, in fourteen accessible chapters, from the Lesson of Love to the Lesson of Happiness, the authors reveal the truth about our fears, our hopes, our relationships, and above all, about the grandness of who we really are.
Elisabeth Kübler-Ross was one of the best-loved and most-respected authorities on the subject of death and dying. Her books have been translated into twenty-seven languages. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross passed away on August 24, 2004 at the age of seventy-eight.
