it was ok

This was not her best book. I read it because I have enjoyed many of her other books. I suppose it was a wonderful summary of grief, and it well distinguishes grief from depression. I suspect that after nursing her husband, a true scientist in spirit as she describes him, through illness, she wants to thanks many medical professionals. But she includes so many high profile doctors that it seems after a while that she is name dropping. She seems to have no concept of how medical care works for the rest of America. I found that frustrating, though perhaps that is my own problem, being a part of regular America myself.
