Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, M.D., is the woman who has transformed the way the world thinks about death and dying. Beginning with the groundbreaking publication of the classic psychological study On Death and Dying, through her many books and her years working with terminally ill patients, Kübler-Ross has brought comfort and understanding to millions coping with their own deaths or the deaths of loved ones. Now, facing her own death at age seventy-one, this world-renowned healer tells the story of her life and explores her ultimate truth -- death does not exist.
Told frankly and with warmth, The Wheel of Life traces the intellectual and spiritual development of a destiny. In a culture determined to sweep death under a carpet and hide it there, Kübler-Ross consistently defied common wisdom to bring it into the light and hold it there for us to see and not be afraid. Driven by compassion, undeterred by obstacles, she tells us through the story of her remarkable life that free will is our greatest gift and that our goal is spiritual evolution.

Her story is an adventure of the heart -- powerful, controversial, inspirational -- a fitting legacy to a powerful life....Continua
