Jollytologist Allen Klein tells listeners how to Laugh When You Feel Like Crying, the title of his new book, when he appears on Internet radio's Full Power Living on Thursday, August 25, 2011 (9 a.m. PT Full Power Living or iTunes subscription). Toll-free call-in is also available over 800-630-7858.

Loss is a part of everyone's life, especially in these fast-changing times. Having the old neighborhood disappear under a freeway or strip mall, losing your favorite aunt or uncle, being downsized, or even adjusting to the changing Internet-all of these involve loss and require acceptance and adjustment. Klein wants us to realize that loss is part of life, that it can be one of our greatest teachers, and that, in spite of loss, you can once again fully partake in what life has to offer. "Loss hurts," he says. "But it can also help us be stronger, wiser, and, if nothing else, more appreciative of every moment we have on this earth."
