About the book
A personal and social history of coping with parental loss spanning seven decades.
When Dexter Moscow was 10 years old, his father passed away. Dexter was not allowed into the hospital to say goodbye.
Dexter is now seeking to help people who have experienced the death or loss of a parent when they were young. His mission is to highlight the ways it can adversely affect our entire lives when left unprocessed and offer strategies for overcoming its debilitating grip. Writing for men in particularly, Dexter relates his personal experiences of growing up without the guiding hand of a loving parent. He explores the ways the trauma negatively impacted his life and relationships and shares the mechanisms he has used to put this ever-present spectre to rest.
Dexter Moscow is a Keynote Speaker, Influencing Skills Coach and TV Presenter. He is the author of Stand Up & Sell, which teaches people how to become more persuasive and influential, when it really matters. Dexter is married, has identical twin sons and 4 grandchildren, and lives in London.
“The book is heart-warming… it’s like a big hug from a friend that says ‘I’m here to help you’.”
