Recommended for: Anyone who lost someone to suicide
Read in April, 2007

Senator Gordon Smith (of Oregon) lost his son, Garrett, to suicide after suffering from depression most of his life. This book was good when it stuck to the story of Garrett, his silent suffering, his parents feelings of guilt and having to go on with life. Unfortunately, Sen. Smith spent too much time talking about himself, his work and his life. To me this felt much more like an autobiography of Sen. Smith's life and not the topic at hand...Garrett's suffering of depression and bipolar disorder and ultimate ending of his life.
