Written in Irv Yaloms inimitable story-telling style, Staring at the Sun is a profoundly encouraging approach to the universal issue of mortality. In this magisterial opus, capping a lifetime of work and personal experience, Dr. Yalom helps us recognize that the fear of death is at the heart of much of our anxiety. Such recognition is often catalyzed by an awakening experiencea dream, or loss (the death of a loved one, divorce, loss of a job or home), illness, trauma, or aging.
