I enjoyed reviewing this immensely interesting and thought-provoking textbook that covers a wide range of issues related to sudden death and family bereavement... Its primary audience is nurses and midwives although it will also be of interest to a range of health and social professionals including educators, GPs, teachers, and social workers... I thoroughly recommend this book as essential reading to all those who may become involved in supporting bereaved families following sudden death.
