How to Book
Living with Death and Dying: How to communicate with the terminally ill, written by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, MD, is a 181 page How-To book published by Touchstone in 1997. It was written for grades 9+, ages 14- adult. The author teaches us how to use her tools for understanding how the dying tell their innermost knowledge and needs. She describes the urgency for meaningful dialogue in assisting patients to pass with peace and dignity. We learn how important we are to the person dying an

The data and writings of Dr. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross are really perceptive and affecting, because they show the living what can be possible versus what just is, as well as how life can and should be lived: to the fullest and most meaningful way possible.

In this, her fifth book, she looks at the progression of palliative care by way of parent-pediatric involvement (see Section III, Parent Care: Total Involvemen ...more
This short book is really only half by Kubler-Ross. Two of its four chapters are written by others, and the last chapter is transcription of an interview with Kubler-Ross.

What the dying have to teach us. More about denial, acceptance, and attitudes of people that are terminal.
great book for anyone wanting to support someone with terminal cancer
