A story about ageing parents and the responses they receive from their children as life gets tougher and they ask for help. There are many surprises, and shocks too, as events steer them on an unpredictable course. They learn that their children are not the individuals they had imagined them to be; their perception of each changes and they suffer bitter disappointment. Is there any escape for either of them, and if there is, will their health allow it?
Life is quite unpredictable. One minute you’re blessed with health, love, and success, then the next minute, one thing has been painfully stripped away from you. The amount of pain you feel and the emotional turmoil you experience with loss is known as grief. When you grieve the loss of someone in your life, you’re suffering emotionally because you can’t seem to cope without them. It’s often hard comprehending how this loved one was taken away, and you’re left with a gaping hole in your life that you’re unable to fill.
Grief doesn’t necessarily mean losing a loved one. Many people grieve the loss of a pet or a job. They can also grieve if they’re going through a failed marriage that led to divorce or if they’re going through a health or financial crisis. Grieving means coping with a sudden loss, any loss.
Grief is quite complicated, and whether it’s as severe as the death of a loved one or losing a job, both are quite personal to you. The way you grieve means you’re trying to deal with one of life’s biggest challenges, and it can often prove to be quite overwhelming. Bereavement, or complicated grief, affects many adult grievers, and they find themselves emotionally and physically overwhelmed.
In this book, we will show you that grieving is a natural thing, and you don’t need to be alone. We delve deeper into what grief looks like so you can recognize the signs and see what to expect. We also offer some steps toward healing and finding peace.
Disclaimer: This book is a guide for anyone who has faced a loss and is grieving. However, it is not an alternative to therapeutic professional help. Seeking professional and psychiatric help is also recommended to help you through your own grieving process.

After publishing his bestselling novel The Transhumanist Wager in 2013, Zoltan Istvan began frequently writing essays about the future. A former journalist with National Geographic, Istvan’s essays spanned topics from the Singularity to cyborgism to radical longevity to futurist philosophy. He also wrote about politics as he made a surprisingly popular run for the US Presidency in 2016, touring the country aboard his coffin-shaped Immortality Bus, which The New York Times Magazine called “The great sarcophagus of the American highway…a metaphor of life itself.” Zoltan’s provocative campaign and radical tech-themed articles garnered him the title of the “Science Candidate” by his supporters. Many of his writings—published in Vice, Slate, Quartz, The Guardian, Gizmodo, TechCruch, Psychology Today, Salon, New Scientist, Business Insider, The Daily Dot, Maven, Cato Institute, The Daily Caller, Metro, International Business Times, Wired UK, The San Francisco Chronicle, Newsweek, and The New York Times—went viral on the internet, garnishing millions of reads and tens of thousands of comments. His articles—often seen as controversial, provocative, and secular—elevated him to worldwide recognition as one of the de facto leaders of the burgeoning transhumanism movement. Here are many of those watershed essays again, organized, edited, and occasionally readapted by the author in this comprehensive nonfiction work, The Anti-Deathist Movement: Writings of a Radical Longevity Activist—part of a forthcoming box set book collection of his work focusing on futurism, secularism, life extension, politics, philosophy, transhumanism and his early writings. Also included is one of Zoltan’s new essays, never published before. Enjoy reading about the future according to Zoltan Istvan.
