Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross created her classic seminal work, On Death and Dying, to offer us a new perspective on the terminally ill. It is not a psychoanalytic study, nor is it a how-to manual for managing death. Rather, it refocuses on the patient as a human being and a teacher, in the hope that we will learn from him or her about the final stages of life.

On Death and Dying examines the attitudes of the dying and the factors that contribute to society's anxiety over death. It closely looks at the five stages of death(denial and isolation, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance) and how the dying and living deal with them.

In addition, this program offers multi-voice readings of some of the most revealing interviews Dr. Kubler-Ross conducted with her patients. By hearing some of the most intimate and sensitive feelings expressed by those men and women, it is hoped that we may learn more about death and lessen our own anxieties about the natural course of our lives.

At its heart, On Death and Dying is a truly remarkable program about communication, offering insight on how to talk with and listen to the terminally ill, and truly hear their fears, hopes, angers, and anxieties.

    " Sooner or later, we all have to deal with the subject of death. What a boon to have this book along to make the journey. What makes this book a classic is that the author's five stages of death resonate with everyone who has ever had to look death in the face. Just being able to put a name to a feeling, whether it be denial and isolation, anger, bargaining, depression or acceptance, has brought peace to many people. This is one of the seminal psychological works of the late twentieth century, and should be on every reading list. It is just that useful. "

    " I read this for a Death and Dying class a few years ago. While the subject matter was depressing I think I have a better handle on the concept etc.. because of this book and the class "
