4.0 Staring at the Sun: Overcoming the Terror of Death
I honestly think Yalom is the only author who can write a self-help kind of book without ruining everything completely. His writing is really good and, as always, he makes me think of and at things. And think with seriousness, not just skim through important matters and forget, but compare, question...

5.0 Staring at the Sun: Overcoming the Terror of Death
Great book. It seemed as though Yalom was trying to impart as much of his knowledge as possible before his own death. It frequently was off topic, and I loved it. By the way, it's also a wonderful tool for helping those who are struggling with their own mortality.
