While death may look like a loss to the living, the last hours of a dying person may be filled not with emptiness, but rather with fullness. In this new book, David brings us stunning stories from the bedsides of the dying that will educate, enlighten, and comfort us all.

Is this really how I want to live my life? Each one of us at some point asks that question. The tragedy is not that life is short, but that we often see only in hindsight what really matters.In this life-changing book, Elisabeth Kübler-Ross and David Kessler guide us through the lessons we need to learn so that we can live life to its fullest in every moment. Many years of working with the dying have shown them that certain lessons come up over and over again. Some of these lessons are enormously difficult to master but even the attempt to understand them can be deeply rewarding. Here, in fourteen accessible chapters, from The Lesson of Authenticity to The Lesson of Happiness, the authors reveal the truth about our fears, our hopes, our relationships, and above all, about the grandness of who we really are.
