9781408878095: Tips from Widowers

A unique, practical and thoughtful manual of tips, anecdotes and advice from men who have lived through the loss of a wife or partner, with a foreword from acclaimed journalist Robert Peston.

With foreword by journalist Robert Peston

When Jan Robinson's husband died suddenly and unexpectedly, she had the idea of asking any other widows, whenever and wherever she met them, for two tips about how to deal with widowhood. From this advice, she constructed her beautiful first volume, Tips from Widows.

To Robinson's surprise, the book generated an overwhelming response not only from widows, but also from widowers. From these outpourings it became evident that a second book, this time for widowers, was inevitable.

Grief is an unmanageable emotion and the form it takes is unique to every man whose wife or partner has died. There are no set rules about coping with loss. Some people struggle with it for years and maybe never get over it. Others manage to move on. This book makes no claim to be an authority on how to cope as a widower; it is, quite simply, tips from widowers. You may be alone in your boat on the ocean, but Tips from Widowers will help you to recognize that other boats are out there too.

Review:

"There is no dress rehearsal for becoming a widower. Think of this book as a wise and practically minded friend when you need one most." ―Robert Peston

"This is a wonderful, beautiful little book. It is like a quiet wise friend, full of comfort and practical counsel, when your world has collapsed or changed beyond recognition . . . And it is written from experience, which is the bedrock of reliable advice." ―Joanna Lumley on TIPS FROM WIDOWS

"A unique, practical and thoughtful manual for dealing with grief." ―Daily Telegraph on TIPS FROM WIDOWS

"The book’s charm lies in its slightness. Robinson has an unassuming tone. She never presumes to dispense knowledge, only to share wisdom. . . The cumulative effect is to entertain and soothe with a shared pain and sometimes, a smile." ―Guardian on TIPS FROM WIDOWS

"Intrepid is the word that springs to mind on meeting Jan Robinson . . . A slim volume packed with down-to-earth wisdom and tips on everything from funerals to finances. It’s an inspiring, touching and, at times, funny read." ―Saga on TIPS FROM WIDOWS

"The book that will do for widowhood what Mrs Beeton did for cooking." ―Kensington Magazine on TIPS FROM WIDOWS

"I wish this book had been available when my husband died thirteen years ago." ―Oldie on TIPS FROM WIDOWS

"A neat, comforting pocket book on a subject most of us still want to tiptoe around . . . It’s that gentle someone who sits you down and shows you how to reply to the messages that flood in following a death, who warns against perils and advises on questions like whether to drink away your sorrows . . . Almost anyone, in fact, could benefit from reading this book, since almost all of us are at risk, at some point, of losing a loved one." ―Herald on TIPS FROM WIDOWS
