What is included with this book?


In The Grief Club-part memoir, part self-help book, part journalism-you will come to know about Beattie's experiences with death, divorce, and drug addiction. You will meet many others who have also endured tragedy and heartbreak. And you will, undoubtedly, see parts of yourself and your life reflected in the stories. That's how the club works. The secret for getting through life's losses, Beattie reveals, lies in joining the club and sharing your story with people who listen and care and understand. And, in turn, you will be there to listen, care, understand, and welcome others to The Grief Club. Book jacket.
