The loss of one's father is one of the biggest life events one can experience. Nothing prepares you for the immense, life changing grief you will encounter. Everyone grieves differently. This book is from the perspective of someone who has gone through their own loss of their parent, and documented the stages of grief experienced along the way.
Saying Goodbye to Dad covers the aspects of grieving the loss of one's father from a personal experience, not from a clinical or professional point of view. Listening to this will expand your awareness of the grieving process so it does not seem endless, realizing there is an end to the emotions you are experiencing, and that many are going through the identical journey. This book will also strengthen your ability to confront your loss and successfully move forward with your life, bringing understanding that death does not end a relationship, but merely changes it.

For those looking for a road map or psychological understanding of grief, this title will start out well enough, aided by sincerity on the part of the author giving authenticity. The final chapters however, dissolve into an unfocused religious and new age pseudo science style attempt to comfort readers that likely cannot please those with a specific religion or those with none at all. These chapters would have likely been better served appendix if better researched.
I like the narration, very simple, casual and from the heart. Left me with a good and optimistic feeling knowing the spirit of our loved one will be with us.
