The statistics on suicide are staggering. According to the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention, in 1997 in the USA more teenagers and young adults died from suicide than from cancer, heart disease, AIDS, birth defects, stroke, pneumonia, influenza and chronic lung disease combined. It is also an international epidemic.

Susan Blauner is the perfect emissary for a message of hope and a program of action for these millions of people. She's been though it, and speaks and writes eloquently about feelings and fantasies surrounding suicide.

Awesome loved this book. Best one I've ever read on the topic. Details heaps of strategies and distractions. An excellent resource. Much better than I was expecting.

A really good book written by someone who has struggled with suicidal ideation for many years as a result of mental illness. I work as a psychologist and use sections of this book with clients who have long term suicial ideation. It is not a quick fix. It reinforces that you need to work with your therapist to come up with the best strategies to get through the really difficult days. But is full of practical ideas, insightful reflections and good advice from one survivor to another. An excellent, unique and very helful book.

People are afriad to talk about suicide. It seems that the religious backing of our societies makes suicide a morally subverse topic that has never been fully accepted or tackled by modern western societies. This was an interesting read just for its honesty in dealign with an issue that many people see as too dark to talk about. This is an important book that we should all read. I hope this book succeeds in bring suicide and depression out into the open. I highly recommend it!
