   Interesting strange book
I assumed this was written by a rabbi, but I was surprised to learn the author is an unbeliever. He goes to great lengths not to offend believers. Everything was created by chance. That's where the problem is. Humans, ants, stars and trees all happened by chance. Is it possible that the atoms aligned to make an aardvark? Really, really? The fear of death is the root of all religions. Religion has been created by man rather than dealing with death. The logic he uses to dismiss the existence of God is irrational.
   The author doesn't believe in the existence of the soul, so why write the book?
The book is a great read. The author's view is if existence ends upon death. There is nothing to worry about. That's a rational viewpoint for them but why would they want to write a book about it? Being a person of faith, I wasted my money with ungodly counsel.
   Everything From Yalom That I've Read Is Invaluable
Yalom is the best writing psychologist in the western world at the moment. His writing style is similar to how he speaks. He has a remarkable life. I highly recommend this book to psychiatrists, mental health workers and patients. Patients should be exposed to this book at the right time in treatment as the subject matter can be overwhelming for many who aren't ready for it.
   Profound and intimate. Don’t miss it.
I don't like the books. I always found them missing the deep issues when I read them. This is not the case with Yalom's book. The discussion is deep and touching on my own concerns. The book is based on the author's experience as a therapist. The writing is engaging. I recommend it to all of my friends.
   I'm glad I bought this as I am now not wanting ...
This book has helped me a lot and I wanted to leave a review to say that. Sometimes I just want to die because it's too much to bare. This book has given me a new perspective and is helping me not be afraid. I'm glad I bought this because I now want to live my life to the fullest and I don't want to give up.
   I will keep going back to this book
I just finished reading another book and downloaded a sample of this one. I bought the book before I finished the sample. I didn't have a medical diagnosis for my symptoms. During my sickness, there was an intense fear of dying. Two episodes were so powerful that I fear dying daily. I wouldn't allow myself to go to sleep. I was scared even more when I started reading this book. All this death talk. I couldn't stop reading! I just dealt with the fear and read more. I feel so much better now that I' ve finished the book, because there are so many people who have felt the same. My fears are not caused by death premonitions. I like the questions in the Afterward and will write them down when I'm done answering them. Thank you Dr. Yalom.
   But I would recommend it for ANYONE
Incredible read. I am a student in a mental health counseling school. I would recommend it for anyone. It gave me so much to think about. You don't have to be interested in mental health counseling or death terror to enjoy this book.
