Ten years after Elisabeth Kübler-Ross’s death: “An inspiring…guide to life, distilled from the experiences of people who face death” (Kirkus Reviews)—the beloved classic now with a new introduction and updated resources section.

Is this really how I want to live my life? 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 her first book on life and living, Elisabeth Kübler-Ross joined with David Kessler to guide us 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."This is a thought-provoking book, one which in my opinion should be made compulsory. It is insightful, inspirational, intelligent, soothing, emotive, and informative about our seemingly arbitrary existence."

Über den Autor Kübler-Ross, Elisabeth

Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, 1926 in der Schweiz geboren, studierte in Zürich Medizin. Bevor sie in die USA auswanderte, war sie in der Schweiz als Landärztin tätig. In den Vereinigten Staaten arbeitete sie anfangs in einigen psychiatrischen Kliniken in New York, Denver und Chicago. Zeitweise ging sie einer Lehrtätigkeit an einigen Universitäten nach. In Virginia leitete sie ein Seminarzentrum mit dem Schwerpunktthema "Leben und Sterben". Auf der ganzen Welt hielt sie Workshops ab, um die Menschen wieder zu lehren, ihre Liebesfähigkeit zu entfalten. Ihre Arbeit und Hingabe galten in ihren letzten Lebensjahren besonders sterbenden Kindern und Aidskranken. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, die im August 2004 verstarb, hat mit ihren Forschungen den Menschen Hoffnung gegeben, dass mit dem Tod - entgegen der "wissenschaftlichen" Meinung - ein neues, strahlenderes Leben beginnt, auf das wir uns alle freuen können.
