Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

David Kessler - the world's foremost expert on grief and the coauthor with Elisabeth Kübler-Ross of the iconic On Grief and Grieving - journeys beyond the classic five stages to discover a sixth stage: meaning.

David has spent decades teaching about end of life, trauma and grief. And yet his life was upended by the sudden death of his 21-year-old son. How does the grief expert handle such a devastating loss? 

In Finding Meaning, Kessler shares his hard-earned wisdom and offers a road map to remembering those who have died with more love than pain, how to move forward in a way that honours our loved ones and ultimately transform grief into a more peaceful and hopeful experience. 

An inspiring, deeply intelligent must-listen for anyone struggling to figure out how to live after loss.

Very useful and yet beautiful book. David Kessler talks in a very sensitive way about this extremely difficult subject.

I loved this book

I find David a really genuine person. I.like the fact he reads his own books and he talks from the heart. David tells you what got him into the work.he does and how he lost his mum when he was just 13. Throughout his life he has helped other people through loss and grief. I lost my son to mental health/suicide in April this year, 2020. listening to David talk helps to calm me down. I am going through a really tough time with my grief and PTSD. Hearing David talk about his own son, David Jnr, really resonates with me. He lost a young adult child, he learned the grief you feel when it's your child, is just unbearable..I listen to this at night, to calm my thoughts and it really helps. Just knowing the writer has been through what he is talking about, helps me to trust him and believe in what he says. Thank you David..I am not fixed yet, but I am taking everything you say on board and I have joined your group Tender Hearts, to see how I get on with that. Thank you
