I would have liked this better if it had just been a memoir of Sandberg dealing with her grief. Having the research added in just kind of took some of the emotion out of it for me. It was like "my children will now have to live without their father, along with [insert statistic]" (not an exact quote, but you get the gist). It did have some good points of how people deal with grief differently and there's no timeline for how long one should "properly" grieve. It also gave good points on how to be a friend to someone who is grieving. Overall I liked it, just wish the research part had been left out of it.
