The Wheel of Life: A Memoir of Living and Dying Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this much-andcipated autobiography, the woman who transformed the way we think about death and dying reveals her ultimate beliefs about the purpose of life and the meaning of death — truths she has discovered as her own life draws to a close.

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross's final testimony is as powerful and inspiring as her classic On Death and Dying. In The Wheel of Life, she chronicles the events that have shaped her intellectually and spiritually, from her work as a doctor in war-ravaged Poland to her years of counseling the terminally ill and their families, to the series of strokes that have sharpened her insights into the nature of our final passage.

Writing with her usual candor, Kubler-Ross describes how the near-death experiences of the patients she has worked with convinced her that there is something beyond the death of the physical body, a belief affirmed in recent years by firsthand encounters with her own spirit guides. At once a story of Kubler-Ross's remarkable life and an extraordinary memoir of her spiritual evolution, The Wheel of Life teaches us to live life with courage, love, and hope.

"A wonderful testimony to the gentle beauty of her work". — The Topeka Metro News

Review:

"The author of this inspiring autobiography is a psychiatrist who will be esteemed as a great humanitarian for having introduced the Hospice concept to the United States which has brought inner peace and comfort to the tens of thousands of terminally ill Americans and members of their immediate families. But additionally, in the course of her professional career, she became an international expert who revolutionalized the way the medical world regarded death and dying, through her private practice, teaching, speeches, books, and articles on the subject. Facing her own fatal illness at the age of 71, she now shares her personal spiritual transformation with us. The reading of this remarkable book, if you accept her message of love and hope, may well constructively change your own life." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
