really liked it

This is one of the best books I've read on understanding suicide (if there is such a thing). Jamison writes the facts in an interesting way. Most books on the subject try to delve into the psychological jargon and my eyes just glaze over. There are a few case studies spread throughout the books, and they make the cases PEOPLE. There is compassion in Jamison's writing. She makes it clear that there are many factors in a person's life leading up to that choice; the person is NOT that last sad act.
