Editorial Reviews. Review. "On Death and Dying can help us face, professionally and . If you have a loved one dying, or even has died, this books story can help you. At the time I read it, I had no loved one sick or dying, I was just curious. She was also the author of the groundbreaking book On Death and Dying, which first discussed The Five Stages of Grief. Elisabeth authored twenty-four books. Ten years after Elisabeth Kübler-Ross's death, a commemorative edition with a new introduction and updated resources section of her beloved groundbreaking .

Grief was not linear; it was more of an oscillation. Different kinds of loss bring different stories, and different kinds of pain.

Telling the story of how you loved and how you lost gives shape and meaning to what first seems to be a meaningless, uncontrollable event. The author, Jessica Nutik Zitter, is a physician who specializes in both critical care medicine and palliative care, the yin and yang of medicine. Critical care specialists are taught to save lives with all the technology and machinery at their disposal.

Palliative care specialists need the opposite skill set: They have to know how to help a dying person let go. Zitter is trained in both. Of course, it was not always thus.

Zitter describes her first Code Blue as a resident. She relates interviews and stories of individuals who experienced a natural—though never easy—progression from initial denial and isolation through anger, bargaining, and depression and achieved a sense of acceptance of their situations, or at least acquiescence to it.

She also relates the experiences of others in whom movement from one to another stage stalled in denial or anger. We learn that some people move through denial or anger only to have these emotional states later recur as illness advances.

Emotional life is complex, and the interviews in On Death and Dying reveal that sometimes seemingly incompatible states, such as denial and acceptance, can coexist.

Although the research certainly warranted the attention of a medical audience, she chose to write for the general public. But that is what it did. As a physician, I am struck by how far we have come, and yet how far we still have to go to achieve truly person-centered care.

In rereading On Death and Dying as a professional, I once again felt its impact on a personal level—as an individual who is also a son, brother, husband, father, and grandfather. The people we are introduced to in On Death and Dying remind us of our own mortality, but they also show us that how people die is not predetermined and can be made better or worse by the choices they make and the quality of care they receive.

We see some of the myriad ways the manner in which people are cared for and die affects those who love them.

After all these years, On Death and Dying remains a call to action to listen to the people who need our help and respond with all the knowledge and skill we can bring to bear—always with humility, fellowship, and compassion.

In a professional society where the young medical student is admired for his research and laboratory work during the first years of medical school while he is at a loss of words when a patient asks him a simple question?

If we could combine the teaching of the new scientific and technical achievements with equal emphasis on the interpersonal human relationships we could indeed make progress, but not if the new knowledge is conveyed to the student at the price of less and less interpersonal contact. A wonderful book about what the dying can teach us about how and why to live.

Kubler-Ross takes us through her model of grief - denial, anger, bargaining, sadness, and acceptance - and explains the functions and complexities of each stage.Grief was not linear; it was more of an oscillation.

If he tries to rebel he will be sedated and after hours of waiting and wondering whether he has the strength, he will be wheeled into the operating room or intensive treatment unit and become an object of great concern and great financial investment. Only those who have lived through this may appreciate the discomfort and cold necessity of such transportation which is only the beginning of a long ordeal -- hard to endure when you are well, difficult to express in words when noise, light, pumps, and voices are all too much to put up with.

One of the most important facts is that dying nowadays is more gruesome in many ways, namely, more lonely, mechanical, and dehumanized; at times it is even difficult to determine technically when the time of death has occurred.
