Prof O'Connor gives us a rare and truly affecting gift ... If you want to truly get to the heart of 'the big S question', read this incredible book. I wept and I learnt. * Prof Tanya Byron *
I was so impressed by the work that Rory does. If you want to really understand why people end their lives, please read this book. If you want to support a friend or someone in your family who is suicidal or who has lost a loved one to suicide, this is the book for you; it is full of helpful tips and brilliant advice. This book comes from the heart. * Roman Kemp *
Rory is wise, unbelievably knowledgeable and an incredible force for good in such a complex area. He has changed my view so much on the way we should approach suicide and mental health healthcare, and he has also made me reconsider my own mental health and that of the people I love. * Dr Xand van Tulleken *
An essential read. Honest and unflinching, but always thoughtful and compassionate, Rory O'Connor brings light to a subject that has for too long been in the shadows. * Dr Niall Boyce, Editor, Lancet Psychiatry *
I read [it] in a single sitting. What makes it so compelling is its unique combination of research, clinical, and deeply personal perspectives on one of the great societal challenges of our time. Rory's enthusiasm to make things better and his utter dedication to suicide prevention shines through. * Nav Kapur, Professor of Psychiatry and Population Health, University of Manchester *
