MILL VALLEY, CALIFORNIA, July 13 — Not the easiest but the healthiest way to handle an anticipated death is to talk or write about it. Rev. George L. McLaird’s new bestseller, I Hear You're Afraid of Dying or Afraid Someone You Love Will Die Before You, helps readers do just that.

Preparing for one’s own death and dying or for anyone we love is one of the most traumatic events we will ever experience. Even the thought of it can bring on fear so deeply embedded it can be debilitating or nearly so. With all of our heart, we want to avoid death in its many forms happening as long as possible. Some refuse to allow themselves to dwell on this and never say a single word about it. They suffer alone.
Some cultures are permeated with deeply agreed-upon superstitions. One of these insidious superstitions is the belief that speaking of one’s death or the death of another will draw the event closer to fruition. Secretly, they too suffer alone.

 “If you have even the slightest fear of dying or you’re afraid someone you love will die, welcome to the club. At some point, every person has experienced this type of fear. Some people report they have absolutely no fear of dying, while for others, the very thought sends them into a panic attack. For a very long time, I was afraid of my own death and the possibility of eternal annihilation but no more. This is a book filled with suggestions. Every idea presented here comes in the form of a suggestion for the readers’ consideration. It’s your life and your death and you deserve to be in the driver’s seat when it comes to both.”  ~Rev. George L. McLaird
