Here is a new look at our unrealistic attitudes toward dying. Facing Death does not attempt to unravel mysteries; rather it shows that a growing awareness of what we hope to achieve in life can bring peaceful resignation when death approaches. Among much else Robert Kavanaugh discusses our preconceived notions about mourning, our outdated death mythology, today's changing views of euthanasia and suicide, and the value and purpose of funerals. As teacher, psychologist, and former priest, Dr. Kavanaugh has had innumerable contacts with the dying and the grieving, and he has known bereavement himself. He says, "My ideas are more than theories; they were tested in reality and they worked." "Wise and comforting counsel ... Kavanaugh succeeds in making death real-and important-and convincing us that to shun death is likewise to evade life." - Human Behavior.
