In this much-andcipated autobiography, the woman who transformed the way we think about death and dying reveals her ultimate beliefs about the purpose of life and the meaning of death -- truths she has discovered as her own life draws to a close.
Elisabeth Kubler-Ross's final testimony is as powerful and inspiring as her classic On Death and Dying. In The Wheel of Life, she chronicles the events that have shaped her intellectually and spiritually, from her work as a doctor in war-ravaged Poland to her years of counseling the terminally ill and their families, to the series of strokes that have sharpened her insights into the nature of our final passage.
Writing with her usual candor, Kubler-Ross describes how the near-death experiences of the patients she has worked with convinced her that there is something beyond the death of the physical body, a belief affirmed in recent years by firsthand encounters with her own spirit guides. At once a story of Kubler-Ross's remarkable life and an extraordinary memoir of her spiritual evolution, The Wheel of Life teaches us to live life with courage, love, and hope.
"A wonderful testimony to the gentle beauty of her work". -- The Topeka Metro News
