2 - This book does a great job of describing the varied experiences and emotions that people go through after losing a loved one to suicide. While the authors haven't lost someone to suicide themselves, it has lots of stories of survivors. The book does a great job of explaining how helpful survivor support groups can be. If you are trying to work up the courage to attend a meeting, this book explains what to expect.

I really wish I didn't have to read this book. I thought it was helpful, but it's almost 20 years old and there has been so much more research done. It only talks about depression as a reason for suicide. It's also more of an argument for survivor support groups.

It's hard to "like" a suicide book, but this book is helpful for its human touch. Anyone in the wake of suicide will find comfort and hope in the stories and principles found within. My personal source of greatest comfort has been prayer and my incredibly supportive friends.
