Library Journal Review

Death is part of life. Thus, Dresser (Multicultural Manners) and licensed marriage/family therapist Wasserman write to provide a new perspective on the challenges of caring for the dying and living with grief. Interspersing narratives and psychological advice, the authors write frankly about the initial conversation on impending death, the final moments, and grieving. They spend a hefty chapter helping the caretaker focus on self-care and discuss how to respond to insensitive health-care professionals. The authors touch on everything from spiritual services to memorials. Verdict A superb book, offering everything one needs to know and more.-Deborah Bigelow, Leonia P.L., NJ (c) Copyright 2010.
