Reviews - What do customers think about Good Grief Large Print?
Good Grief Mar 22, 2007
This small booklet describes the ten stages of grief and is written in such a manner that it is easy to read and the reader need not read each section in order. It is a helpful reference book that is given out at my church's community grief support group, "The Comfort Zone," which is why I purchased a quantity of them.
Better than Flowers Mar 21, 2007
This book is a wonderful gift for anyone who has a death in their life. From your parents, to your loved one, to a child, there is something for everyone in this book. I bought it for myself when my father died and now its a must have to give instead of flowers for the people in my life who experience a death.
Excellent Description of the Grief Process Nov 6, 2006
This wonderful book written by a Christian for Christians (but an excellent resource for non-Christians) is based on the scripture "Grieve not as those who have no hope" (1 Thess. 4:13). The grieving process is described and the stages are listed and defined. This is a practical and inspiring choice for anyone who has suffered any kind of heart wrenching loss. It can be refered to as long as the griving process lasts.
Excellent for self-help and for helping others Jul 25, 2006
I am a counselor working primarily with adolescents, but this book is applicable for people of any age. I bought it to use as a tool for working with teens, but picked it up when I lost a family pet and read it while I was grieving. Very helpful. Best aspect of this book is that it deals with different kinds of losses in life that we grieve over- not exclusively death issues. The 10 steps have relevance for anyone who has experienced a loss, and the author does a wonderful job of explaining the steps of grief and how humans process grief. It is faith based, and that made me appreciate it even more!
Not so much... Jun 15, 2006
This "mini-booklet" is basically a reiteration of the stages of grief set within a Judeo-Christian perspective. One could probably stop by the local funeral parlor and pick up a free pamphlet that would be every bit as edifying. Good grief, what a disappointment!
