Praise for the Fourth Edition:

"In the fields of death education, research and counseling/psychology, surely Bill Worden is a giant...ALL of us, personally and professionally, are indebted to [him]. From his work we may be just a bit wiser, a bit healthier, a bit more competent, and a lot more in touch with meaning for the sake of all who mourn."

--Illness, Crisis, & Loss

"[If] you knew Worden's work and his writings previously, you'll find an enhanced book with a much broader and challenging perspective than his previous editions. If you are not familiar with Bill Worden, then it is time to begin."
