For Jews who have experienced a loss, this is a very useful book. It includes the comments and inputs of various normal people. This is useful, providing a view into the variety of thought and experience of the community. Particularly valuable to me was the confessional of a dying person (the vidui), which I had not known existed, as well as discussion of shiva and shloshim, and many other topics as well.
