Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Many books touch upon the subject of grief, but none so comprehensively as Mary Wong's latest work. As Editor of "The National Directory of Bereavement Support Groups and Services," she reviewed hundreds of bereavement books. Some were over 200 pages and could not hold the attention of a bereaved person; some written for and by academics with information too analytical; some too simple with a paragraph per page; and still others provide theory but very little practical help. Additionally, most 'grief' books discuss divorce, relocation and job transition.

Mary Wong saw very clearly what was missing - one book on bereavement which would serve all grieving individuals. Then she wrote it.

"Understanding Your Grieving Heart" is written solely to assist those grieving a loved one's death and for the family, friends and professionals who wish to better understand their pain and help them through a difficult time in their life.

Whether an individual has experienced the loss of a loved one last week or many years ago, they'll find solace within these pages. Mary Wong's conversational writing style, coupled with her own personal experience, makes "Understanding Your Grieving Heart" an invaluable resource for the bereaved on their road to stability and healing. Offers a clear, concise explanation of what individuals will encounter as they work through the grieving process and specific advice and counsel on how to handle these various situations. The "first" book to reach for following a loved one's death.

"Dedicated to the bereaved whose loved ones perished on September 11, 2001"
