This book is my 38th one read about Grief, NDE or the Afterlife. (This one is only about Grief)

The first page was clearly written For women - about being pregnant. - But then the rest is written in a gender-neutral way.
Jill draws from her own loss of her father - as well as many other people's losses.
Here is a overview of highlights from this book (and some page numbers)

- Capturing memories - before they can fade out.
- Some (much) dynamics of loss.
- Grief can make people pro-active.
- One should never 'get over' grief. (I Agree!)
- (Sigmund) Freud - (like our sick society about grief) "Cut the ties with the deceased & make new attachments" : (
- 'They die - when we stop mentioning them.'
- Death changes us Forever.
p. 18 "Follow your heart." (Always the Worst advice people keep suggesting) : (
- How various cultures deal with grief.
- Humor & Comedy help to ease the pain.
-P.45 *Average American Only Allows the grieving to process - Heal and Get over it. : ( (a sad fact)
p.49 - Delayed reactions.
p.69 - Meditation.
p.73 - Grief - Not a time for Major changes in life! (So True!!)
p.85 - (Another sad fact) Grief and treated as a 'Social Pariah'.
p.86 - Suicide & the Illusion - that if we 'only loved them enough - they'd still be here'.
p.90 - Men hang out with superficial 'friends' (So often - too true!)
p.94 - Children and their grieving.
p.113 - The paradox - a loss is a gain.
p.115 + - Many stories of famous people - their losses - esp losing parents.

p.155 + - Genealogy.
p.161 - In our culture - Grief is expected to be Unspoken.- Sadly Very True!
p.172-175 - Therapists and others Pressuring people to Hastely Dispose or get rid of the Deceased possessions. : (
- How to deal with a child - and the loss of one or both of their parents.
p.192 - "Life can only be understood backward - but must be lived forward."
p.229 - Facing our own mortality.
p.230 - Some GREAT points in making a will & Other arrangements (ahead of time - NOT after the fact)
p.249 - Medium James Van Praagh - the afterlife and connections (I Love his books!). A bit about the afterlife.

A FEW THINGS i DIDN'T LIKE ABOUT THIS BOOK

p.30 - A Typo - says Raymond "Woody" - she means Raymond "Moody".
p.130 - Book seems to admire people Addicted to 'Workaholisum'. Sad!! : (
p.160- Story about some guy found out his ancestor bootlegged grain alcohol And Opium!! : ( - Sad this book is
about Death - yet I'm supposed to smile about a guy who contributed to other deaths? Stupid!

Overall - I think this is a GREAT book. Not perfect - but then what is! To be honest - I want to be upset that the author doesn't have all the answers - but that's a crazy expectation on my part. She did a GREAT job!! Lots of research and work!! A practical way to process grief. No magical solutions. I find more comfort in books about the afterlife - but this book it probably More of what I Need to read and do. I rate it (on my scale) at an 8.5 out of 10. Scott M.

Someone lent me their copy to read, after just a few pages, I decided I really wanted my own copy.

Death leaves its mark, but there are ways to move through the painful aftermath of the loss of a loved one. "Society won't let us talk about our loved ones as if they are still alive" writes author JIll Brooke. But that is exactly what one should do- talk about them. Even though their physical presence is gone- one can experience incredible happiness just by be able to discuss a loved one. It is ok to say their name. The book walks people through bereavement healing steps such as keeping the memory alive, and channeling feelings of loss into accomplishment. As an incentive, Ms. Brooke enumerates people of achievement who became greater, stronger because of the loss of a loved one. Survival teaches us something more about ourselves. We are all achievers; we can go on, and yes time does heal all wounds. Sensitive and beautifully written. Well worth reading.

...It was with great interest and relief that I read the book, Don't Let Death Ruin Your Life, by Jill Brooke. It's filled with insights, wisdom, and compassion. What I like most of all about it is the fact that it gives us permission to miss our loved ones--in a healthy way--for the rest of our lives if we want to. Brooke assures us that it's okay to 'keep our loved ones close by and honor their memory while integrating them into our lives that have now been changed by their physical absence.'
"Some of the ways that she shares how to do this is to notice how our loved ones live on in our beliefs and our feelings, and to tell stories about the positive ways they affected our lives. In doing so, we continue to have a meaningful, significant relationship with them while, at the same time, moving through our grief to a brighter place and reclaiming our happiness.
"This is an amazing book, and one that I'll be buying for others and sharing with people for a long time to come...

Jill Brooke writes where others fear to tread. Her simple logic and easy-to read style gave me a feeling of peace while reading about this painful subject. Brooke writes of death as a muse and motivator and builds her theme slowly and in such a spirit of sharing that I felt I was being guided by a friend. One of the most important lessons learned, was how thinking, talking and remembering your loved ones with others keeps them alive through memories. The book is full of practical information and advice from grief professionals entwined around interviews from well-known personalities such as President Clinton who've experienced loss. A great gift,not just for the bereaved, but for new mothers looking for ideas on how to keep the memory of their parents alive with the next generation who never knew them. After reading this book, I felt I had the tools to help continue my loved ones legacy. This well researched book presents a very real way of thinking about death that removes some of the stigma and fear and leaves in its place compassion and hope for the future. Highly recommended.

First I want to mention something another reviewer wrote, get this book before you loose a loved one. This is a serious prep book as well. Dealing with it straight up, head on and the pain will subside faster. I lost my Mother, the daily life I was living was horrible. I did read the entire book in two days. On the third day I would have to say the majority of my pain subsided substantially. The books writing style and basics should have no bearing on whether you purchase it or not, it has a powerful helping message. I have just finished another book I highly recommend that helped greatly and even furthered my peace, SB 1 or God by Karl Mark Maddox
