Now updated, this classic guide to mourning the sudden death of a loved one contains advice on coping with difficult emotions, making sense of the world after a loss, where to find support, and much more.



Book Synopsis



The most helpful grief book to read when you're ready to start healing after the loss of a loved one.

The grief book that just "gets it." Whether you're grieving the sudden loss of a loved one or helping someone else through their grief, I Wasn't Ready to Say Goodbye offers a comforting hand to help guide you through the grieving process, from the first few weeks to the longer-term emotional and physical effects. It then reveals some of the myths of the grieving process and what really happens as you navigate through the pain.

Top-rated within grief books, topics include:

  • Grieving the loss of a child, partner, parent, sibling, friend, or pet
  • The physical and emotional effects of grief
  • Navigating difficult days such as holidays, anniversaries, and birthdays
  • Helping children cope with grief
  • Understanding the grief recovery process

Written by two authors who have experienced it firsthand, this book has offered solace to over one-hundred fifty-thousand people, ranging from seniors to teenagers and from the newly bereaved to those who lost a loved one years ago. An exploration of unexpected death and its role in the cycle of life, I Wasn't Ready to Say Goodbye provides those people coping with grief with a rock-steady anchor from which to weather the storm of pain and begin to rebuild their lives.

For further step-by-step support, the I Wasn't Ready to Say Goodbye Companion Workbook offers a combination of self-exploration questions, visualization activities, and journaling to help readers through the grieving process.
