A profound and compelling work on how to overcome the universal fear of death Irvin Yalom is an author whose New York Times bestselling books-including Love's Executioner and When Nietzsche Wept-tell illuminating stories that give readers that aha moment where each of us can say yes, that's me, I've felt that too. The 74-year-old Yalom's new book is really the climax of his life's work, a profoundly inspiring and encouraging approach to the universal human issue of mortality and death. He tells us how to understand and accept what is ultimate and inevitable for us all through what he calls the awakening experience, like a dream, a loss (getting fired, divorce, having to move), a trauma (9/11, natural disasters, accidents), the death of a loved one, illness, or just plain aging. Yalom shows us how such an awakening experience can be the turning point for a more meaningful life, inspiring people to rearrange their priorities, stop worrying about trivia, choose not to do the things they don't wish to do, communicate more deeply with those they love, appreciate more keenly the beauty of life, and increase a willingness to take risks for personal fulfillment and a life filled with love. The book includes specific methods and techniques for dealing with the most prevalent kinds of fear of death as well as advice on how to live in the here and now and appreciate the influence and impact we all have that has a life beyond our own. Irvin D. Yalom, MD (Palo Alto, CA) is one of the most famous and highly regarded psychiatrists and authors in the world. Emeritus Professor of Psychiatry at Stanford University School of Medicine, Dr. Yalom has won numerous honors and awards for bothhis novels and nonfiction. He is the author of two New York Times bestsellers, Love's Executioner (978-0-06-095834-3) and When Nietzsche Wept (978-0-06-074812-8).
