Dr Elisabeth Kubler-Ross shot to world fame in 1969 upon publication of her seminal work, "On Death and Dying". Through her many books as well as her years working with terminally ill children, AIDS patients, and the elderly, she brought comfort and understanding to millions coping with their own deaths or the death of a loved one. After a series of strokes she found herself, aged seventy, confronted with her own death. In "The Wheel of Life", her ultimate book and much-anticipated autobiography, she offered a work that is as inspiring, insightful and as incendiary as anything she had written in the past. Her memoir traced the events that shaped her intellectually and spiritually, and inevitably led her to explain her ultimate truth - that death does not exist but is a transformation. We see how her birth in Switzerland as the second of triplet girls and her conventional, though happy, childhood formed the base from which her outspoken and confident views sprang. Then, from her work as a young woman in war-ravaged Poland to her pioneering counselling of the terminally ill, her legendary seminars on death and dying at the University of Chicago and her eye-opening discussions with people who had been revived after death, we learn how each experience provided her with a new piece of the puzzle. Dr Kubler-Ross' affirmation of life after death, already expressed in lectures and interviews, sent shock waves through the medical and New Age communities alike. This final statement will no doubt ignite further controversy and debate. "The Wheel of Life" is an extraordinary, thought-provoking memoir of an exceptional woman. Like her previous revolutionary works, it will captivate and enlighten readers as an inspiring portrait of life and living.
