About Doug Manning and In-Sight Books


My work in grief began when a couple from the church where I was the pastor lost a young daughter from a simple case of the croup. The mother was distraught and crying in the hospital room. The doctor and her husband were trying to calm her when she looked up and said, “Don’t take my grief away from me. I deserve it and I am going to have it.” I found that to be one of the most profound statements about what people in grief need and this became the title of one of my first books and started me on the road to my second career.


My years of counseling as a pastor put me in many situations where people were grieving so I started some of the first bereavement support groups and spent a great deal of time analyzing and trying to understand what processes are involved in a healthy grief journey. I did a lot of listening and learning


Another book, When Love Gets Tough: The Nursing Home Decision, was born from experiences being a care giver for my parents. I tried to fill a communication gap between elderly parents and their children to help them make a decision that was right for their family.


For the last twenty-five years I have devoted all of my time and effort to these two vital areas that we all have faced or will face in our lives. I have traveled all over the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand to speak and listen to folks. I began my company, In-Sight Books, Inc., in order to publish my books on grief and elder care and am delighted now that my company is able to provide this web site as a place where people can come and share and learn from each other.
