What the Critics Say

"Woody Allen once said, 'I'm not afraid of dying. I just don't want to be there when it happens.' For those of us who will be there when it happens, Kelvin Chin is providing insight, caring support, and a warm life philosophy. A much needed book on more than fear, but of really living. (Pen Densham, Oscar-nominated filmmaker)

A great find!

Where does Overcoming the Fear of Death rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

My wife suggested this audible book because I was in the process of talking with my father about his estate and plans after he passes away. He is a little uptight about the subject so she thought this book might make the conversation easier.
So, while this subject matter might be taboo, the author did a fantastic job making this an easy read. He gave many personal examples of real world scenarios that just make the material easier to digest. I found the sections around NDE (near death experiences) especially fascinating and as a result, I ended up reading other stories around the topic. The author also spoke in detail about how his parents death helped shaped the foundation of the book. Great, real stories that Helped me connect with him. I highly recommend this book.

I read the book and listened to it in the car...

I listened to the book on Audible and was very pleased with the sound quality and the volume of the author as he was reading it. Also, Kelvin has a very soothing and almost calming voice and the timbre of his voice is just perfect.
I would recommend this book to anyone really...that's what's so great about it. It's written in such a way that it can be applied for any death or dying situation. No matter what your faith or lack thereof, male or female, or any ethnicity will be able to take away something from this book that will help them with their unique experience with death and dying.
