I'm still reading Good Grief. I have really l earned a lot from Good Grief. I have always thought of grief as having a relationship with people. Yet, when Mr. Westberg spoke of grief's relationship to other things such as jobs, pets and other things, it made sense. Personally when I lost a job not only did I grieve for it, I had a nervous breakdown. This book has been healing in many ways

Great book about the different stages of grief whether you recently lost someone close to to or your lost a job or you had to move away from friends and family. This book is really a great book for stages of any kind of grief. It is also extremely short and easy to read. The whole thing can be read in about 30 minutes so it is great to read with a Friend who might be going through grief as well.

This little book helped our daughter get through the first few awful weeks after her husband was killed by a drunk driver. It helped the whole family, actually, and now we give it to everyone who suffers an unexpected loss. The book is very small, not at all overwhelming at a time when everything else in life is overwhelming. In simple chapters it takes the reader through the steps of grief, and somehow gives assurance that they are not going crazy, and that they will get through this. The book is definitely faith-based, though I think it would be helpful even for those who aren't.

Best book on grief EVER! Buy a dozen and keep them on hand because they fit well inside a sympathy card. I always mail one about 4 weeks after the loss, when friends have gone back to their lives and the grieving is facing that empty chair and overwhelming griet. This books teaches you what you will go through and shows you that even the crazy making parts of grief are normal. GREAT gift for a grieving friend.

It made me feel somewhat normal, instead of feeling like I was the only person in the world to have all these new, terrible, and empty feelings. I gave it to my daughter and explained that when she read the book, she would understand how my life had been over the last couple months. I gave it to a friend who lost her husband 2 weeks after I lost mine. She too had been married to her husband for almost 50 years. After she read it, she called to tell me the book had also made her feel a little better too.

For over 40 years, I have given copies of "Good Grief" to many families and individuals. It is the best small book on dealing with grief. This week, I am giving this tiny volume to a family whose 18-year old daughter has been diagnosed with thyroid cancer and also may have a more stubborn cancer to deal with. She has finished her freshman year in college so the promise of life ahead may be a challenge.
The caring pastor and sensitive lay person will find this small book a way of assisting those dealing with some great loss. Rather than platitudes or the inability to say nothing useful, one may place this book in the hands of those who are perplexed by the change of fortune and let the author guide them through the flow of emotion that collide.

I lost my grandmother and mother in April within 10 days of each other. I was recommended this book by a friend. It's a quick read because it's more of a large pamphlet but it's a bound book. It's not long to read but it's worth taking the time to absorb and read at your own pace. Take your time like I have, please. Grief is a hell of a thing. It changes you at a base level and that's okay. It's okay to grieve in your own time whenever you want to do it. You don't have to do it right when people die. This book is written with some great insights and I'm grateful that he took the time to share his wisdom.
Until we have a name for something we are going through it's often hard to feel that it's okay we are going through it. That it's normal. Good Grief's short, simple guidance through the process of loss has been invaluable to me over the years. One of the key things about this particular book that make it so invaluable is that it conveys the understanding that loss and grief don't necessarily only come through the death of a loved one. Sometimes the same feelings of loss and grief can come through the ending of a relationship, the loss of a child in a divorce, or the changing of one's life abruptly and dramatically through illness or disability. Five stars for this concise, very relevant book about going "through" grief, understanding grief, and coming out the other side until it was "good" grief! It will help.
