I found a Chinese version, which I pulled through Google translate, so some stuff may have been lost in translation.

The book really is just a manual, in that each chapter describes a method, lists the materials needed, the advantages and the disadvantages to each suicide method. Some anecdotes of people who tried the method are also included.

After reading it, I'm convinced that access to the book should be less restricted, as the best way to prevent unnecessary suicides is rational thinking. Thi

Stumbled upon this book and added it out of curiosity. Not that I will ever get to read it unless I could understand Japanese. :P

Besides that, the cover kinda attracts me. *shrugs*

Maybe I would get to read it one fine day if it was ever translated into English.

Here is what this book is all about -

There's even a movie inspired by this book - Jisatsu manyuaru

À défaut d'appliquer les conseils prodigués dans ce livre, on peut au moins apprécier le travail de recherches et l'abondance des détais, que l'on ne peut souhaiter que sérieux et efficaces pour ceux qui s'y sont essayés...

“The acrobat practices: He steps on the edge of a chair and leaps to the floor, feeling the rush as the air flares up his face as he falls. Then he sets himself on something higher, like a table then jumps. He scales a ladder to the ceiling, climbs a tree, pole, watchtower. He keeps increasing the height until no one sees him and the fear to jump leaves him completely, layer by layer [. . .] The acrobat imagines there is a highest possible point in the sky where if he were to fall from it the fall would never end.” 2 likes
