Great information

You get nice insights into the causes and consequences of suicide. I don't know why anyone would dislike this book. You get a greater understanding of everything that evolves around depression, why people are pressured or can't handle life anymore, etc.

Great book

I am hopeful we will learn more about brain chemistry and genetics in the next decade and that this will help us prevent more suicides in the young.

A concise study about the phenomenon of suicide

People say that suicide accounts for more deaths than all the wars and accidents. I believe it, and this book gives you some great insights as to why this is so. It compares countries, causes, psychological disorders, life events, and analyzes the highest risks and solutions for suicidal thoughts and behavior.

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.
