Why read it?

1 author picked Finding Meaning as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

I went through a stage of reading books on grief from experts and this is one that stood out for me because it looks at the sixth stage of grief which is meaning. In this book, the author discusses his own grief with the tragic and sudden loss of his son. I found it to be very sensitively written and practical and it helped me to understand grief in a different way and let me know that what I’d experienced was okay. I found his words very comforting.
