    As the book recommended by a large UK institution, I hoped Virginia Ironside would help me in my grief. I found, unfortunately, that the large number of personal tales of grief didn't make me feel any better. In fact, most of them made me feel worse, as their reference to all types of emotions or non-emotions I should be feeling made me feel like I was obviously not grieving enough. Grief is very personal to each and every individual one of us. A collection of personal stories does not, in my opinion, help. Each to their own, but I did not finish this book, as it made me feel worse, not understood. As to books about the processes of grieving in general: in this Ms. Ironside is correct when she says that there is no process and certainly not a number of set emotions we all go through in neat, consecutive and accountable order. The book I will be reading shortly is Pat Bertram's "Grief", a personal account by the author which reflects my own state of despair and - most of all - yearning so accurately that just reading the preview of this book had me grieving properly, something I'm not able to do easily.
