' ...a profoundly significant book on a topic rarely discussed and little researched, dealing with sudden or unexpected death. The authors have brought together the latest knowledge in the field, and explore how social networks and professionals working with the bereaved can help. This is an important book for all of us, who will sadly one day experience this... it is a must read for those in the field and those suffering.'- Cary L. Cooper, CBE, Distinguished Professor of Organizational Psychology and Health, Lancaster University 'It is nothing short of impressive. Yes, more than impressive, because the down-to-earth nature of the studies and the reader-friendly presentation makes this textbook a gift to us all. And by all of us, I do in fact mean all.'- From the Foreword by Magne Raundalen
