    1. I'm not normally a big self-help reader. Not that I think there's anything wrong with reading self-help books or anything; they just aren't normally what I pick up off the shelf. However, I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone going through a serious (or even not so serious) loss. It was recommended to me by a dear friend, and I'm so thankful. The best thing I can say about this book is that as I read it, I kept thinking, "Yes. Yes! That is exactly how I'm feeling, but I just couldn't [...]

    2. Years back, a friend gave me her copy of this book. For years, I gave copies to friends. I reread this book, forgetting that grieving is a process that varies from person to person and topic to topic. It is simple and I highly recommend reading it. If they let me write a chapter, I would say you can eat Dove bars or spaghetti for breakfast if you need to. And, remember to drink water.

    3. "If you have a physical injury you are hospitalized, friends bring flowers, relatives bring baskets of fruit, you lie in bed all day--nurses give backrubs--you are pampered. If you have an emotional injury, you are expected to show up for work the next morning and be as efficient as ever. You must, in short, deal with a world that simply does not accept the fact that emotional pain hurts." This is such a sad fact: no one understands the time needed to emotionally heal. It's a process. I would re [...]

    4. This book was also given me shortly after a family death. The friend who brought it to me drove it across town to me fairly late the night he heard about our tragedy. He said it couldn't wait - I needed it immediately. He was right. This, and George Anderson's book, have "saved my life" as they have helped me through the most horrific event a parent can go through. The thing that ministered to me the most from this book was the author's ability to understand not just the HUGH thing that happened [...]

    5. This book was recommended to me by a very special person.It's a practical read, that at times I found very hard to read, because I found what it said so true. It really hits the mark, and just allows you to think in other ways, it gives you the right to wollow in self pity, but see why this is actually good thing. There's no don't do this in this book. Even suicide is not a taboo subject, just another view,. The book causes you to reflect, ask questions of yourself, others, self reflection.I've [...]

    6. This book was recommended to me multiple times by my therapist. I resisted, thinking it sounded too self-help-y and depressing. The authors mix the psychology of the grieving process with short poems and quotations. The result was surprisingly helpful and validating.

    7. I loved this book, it was the best book I read that year,a goddess sent, a recommendation for any one that's going througha loss of a love, be that love a human or the loss of a goal, attainment.

    8. My therapist recommended this book to me. I was hesitant to read it at first, but I am so, so glad I did. Recently, I lost someone really important to me. The first two days, I stayed home and did nothing but cry. The rest of the week, I went back to work and did a lot of pacing. Healing has been difficult, and to be honest, I've felt stuck and more sad than I've ever felt. I am not a fan of self help books. I find them preachy, and most of the time, I feel like shit instead of feeling better. T [...]

    9. Sometimes it is really good to go over stuff you already know when it's told to you in a friendly, non-judgmental manner.

    10. Reading How to Survive the Loss of a Love by Melba Colgrove, was a positive experience for me in accepting and understanding the death of a loved one to suicide and losing a relationship. I was able to visualize myself becoming comfortable with grief and anger, as I healed inside. I found hope. I cussed out my pillow, threw it against the wall, and saw a counselor the next day. This book is a must read.

    11. My Mom read this book after my brother passed away many years ago and it really helped her. She suggested I read it after a bad break-up. Although our situations were very different, this book was comforting to us both. I haven't read it in years, but it's probably about that time to read it again.

    12. I pick this one up every time someone close to me dies, soedless to say, my copy is pretty worn and well read.Should actually be 59 things to do when there is nothing to be done, since reading this book is one thing I do every time.

    13. I came across this book at a timely point in my life. It is basically a survival handbook for dealing with loss (and it covers many types of loss, but specifically the loss of a love). I have and still would recommend it for those in need of such a book.

    14. This book validates grief and the necessary process of grief. It cover grief from a death, divorce, lost job, lost pet, etc.

    15. Ska ge den här i handen till alla som förlorar någon älskad i ett dödsfall, skilsmässa eller annan typ av förlust <3

    16. This book is an elegant heart-centered way for navigating through the loss of significant love relationships.

    17. My mother gave this book to me after my father died. I read it again after a relationship ended. I will keep it forever.

    18. Found this book by happenstance at a time in my life when I needed every word in it. Lost a friend? A love? A job? Anything or anyone that meant something to you? This book is a must read

    19. Having survived the death of both parents at an early age, I thought I had what it takes to face whatever life throws at me. I could not have been more wrong about it. This book came to me as much needed help and I have never looked back since. When the divorce happened and sometime to this day, I feel the pain of barbed wire pulled out of my heart, one notch at time. Especially, when the culprit mind takes me back to old memories and how they mean nothing anymore. Every such memory has become b [...]

    20. This book came to me at the right time.Admittedly, the poetry isn't anything stunning, but paired with the advice, it just works. There's some part of me that has resentment to these authors for killing so many trees (there's so much white space) but it works. It helps. I know people in my life who probably need this more than I do. Which is saying a lot. This isn't the kind of book you want, it's the kind you need.

    21. Published in the late '70s, this classic self-help book is admittedly dated. This can be overlooked. The content is genuinely useful for those who are living through a crushing loss. You won't find a list of instructions or advice or greeting card platitudes; what you will find are sensitively worded reminders that grieving is a process, part of the human experience, and survivable.

    22. Overall, I found this book a helpful tool to someone in the grieving process. I wasn't a fan of the poems every other page, but I felt like the information was valuable and helpful. I also believe it is mostly geared towards the loss of a partner, but I believe there is something for everyone in this book who has suffered some kind of loss.

    23. Parts I'd give give 3 stars, and others 4. Addresses a variety of losses, where mine own is focused on loss of love through death. A quick read/reference with short table like headings, so can direct to ones of meaning or interest to the reader.

    24. A brilliant little book about grief. It is organized in three sections: surviving, healing and growing. It provides very practical observations and advice. It is reaffirming - I often felt comforted by its observations. Each chapter is super short, just a page. Highly recommended.

    25. i love this book! It was so helpful and so often I'd open the next page and it was exactly what I was experiencing or needed to read at that moment. So simple.
