If you only had a few days left, how would you live your life differently? Having now faced her own death the famous 'death and dying lady' takes on life and living, showing us how the lessons learned by many people - including herself - at the end, can teach us to improve and enjoy life at any time. Each one of us asks at some point, 'Is this really how I want to live my life?' This is a life-changing book, reminding us that the tragedy is not that life is short, but that we often see only in hindsight what really matters.
LIFE LESSONS faces life's challenges, devoting a chapter to fourteen crucial areas: identity, love and relationships, loss and fear, power, time, tolerance, patience, surrender, guilt, happiness, play, creativity. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross and David Kessler have been to the edge of life, hundreds of times, with those who have died and those who have survived. They invite us to explore these stories, showing us a better way to live and the way towards a deeper happiness. This very positive and hopeful book is a unique way to see each life as meaningful and profound, as an authentic experience that can fulfil its potential.
