Finding Meaning is a brilliant, caring, practical guide to help us understand grief and embrace this important “sixth stage” … David Kessler gifts us with deep insights and life-affirming wisdom that can support our well-being.”

—Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., author of Aware, Mind, and Mindsight

“Some people find meaning through belief in an afterlife; for others it comes from recalling fond memories of the loved ones they lost…The pain of grief is a natural reaction to the loss of someone you love. But, as Mr. Kessler points out, suffering ‘is what our mind does to us,’ and it can be mitigated by finding meaning in what we’ve lost.”

—Jane Brody, The New York Times

"Excellent ... Anyone who has lost a loved one will find solace in Kessler’s comforting words."

Publishers Weekly, starred

“An excellent addition to grief literature that helps pave the way for steps toward healing.”

Library Journal

"Grief is ultimately experienced by everyone. The sad truth is that loss leaves us not knowing what to do or to feel. David Kessler has provided us with a grief compass and a way to find meaning in loss. I will be going back and re-reading it for years to come."

—Denise Jablonski-Kaye, PhD, LAPD Police Psychologist

"David has eloquently articulated an essential component of living with grief: the ability to construct meaning out of tragedy. The book is filled with wisdom and heart, beckoning and inspiring readers to live their lives in harmony with their loved one’s legacy."

— Fredda Wasserman, MA, MPH, LMFT, CT, Our House Grief Support Center
