Death Sucks, Life Doesn't Have To by Brea Behn begins with the shock of her twin brother dying from an accident and how that leaves her shattered. She had to resort to professional help for depression and, while making great progress in her grief, something else also happened to add to the trauma. After many consultations with doctors and specialists, she conducts her own research and comes out with a plan. As she puts it, “one thing I have learned through my journey is that all good in my life has brought more good. It is the best‐kept secret in the world. Good attracts good, and bad attracts bad.” She overcomes her grief and, to help others in helping themselves, the book lists a wide range of helpful hints and web addresses.

Death Sucks, Life Doesn't Have To by Brea Behn has given a good description of the lingering pain that remained with her for many years. Finally when she decided to confront her sorrow, she used cooperation as a technique in place of confrontation. Her new approach recommends herbs, supplements, medications (as a last resort), meditations, exercise routines, yoga routines, etc. This book lists a good bunch of resources and web addresses that can be accessed to find solace and comfort in one's quest. Useful book.
