You'll hear about, among others:

  • Why suicide is more prevalent in some countries than others, according to stats and factors attributed to nations' specific issues.
  • Individual reasons for suicide.
  • Peer pressure, bullying, relationships, financial status, pesticides, governments, substance abuse, social pressure, physical health, employment, and other contributors.
  • Some of the most important tips about what to do when someone is getting serious about committing suicide.
  • A discussion about medication and prevention methods.
  • How to help yourself when you have suicidal thoughts.
  • And much more.

Horrible narrator. Shallow book. Skip it.

Worst narrator I've ever listened to. She couldn't pronounce many words. Horrible voice. Substantively, it should be an article of statistics, rather than a real book. For those who want insight to the death of loved ones, skip this. It's supremely unhelpful.

EXCELLENT BOOK!!!

This is the most helpful book I have read. I have given copies to friends to help them understand what my family and I are going through, having experienced and still grieving greatest loss of our beloved son.

highly recommended!!

I wish nobody I knew needed this book, but that is not reality. Brandy has walked through the fiery hell of heartbreak and healing. She offers the valuable treasure of telling her story first, so people know they are not alone, offering THE GIFT OF [going] SECOND to anyone who needs to step out of the isolation of tragedy.
