Staring at the sun: overcoming the terror of death.

Lucia Martinčeková

After re-reading the book from, in my view, one of the best known psychotherapist in the contemporary world I am considering how to write the book review. Thus, I will use one idea from the book. Author says that writing letters of gratitude to those, who we deeply appreciate, while they are alive, we can express more than just gratitude but also kind of message: “A part of you has become a part of me. It changed me, enriched me and I sell it further" (p. 99). Writing this review is a form of expressing my gratitude to the contribution that Irvin D. Yalom's books bring to personal life and psychotherapeutic practice for many of us.
