   How to Survive the Loss of a Love

      "I am thrilled to once again offer this book in a deluxe hardcover edition. It has sold more than 1.5 million copies in the past thirteen years, but most importantly, if my mail is any indicator, people really like this book."


   It's a directly helpful guide to overcoming loss-any loss-from the break-up of an affair, to the death of a loved one; from the loss of money, to the loss of health.

Trust that nature will do the healing. Know that the pain will pass and, when it passes, you will be stronger, happier, more sensitive and aware."

         I lost,

    which was hell.

    And I survived,
