The Suicidal Mind

Edwin S. Shneidman

  • A groundbreaking, approachable work about an issue of extreme urgency—the only book of its kind
  • Suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death among 15-24 year olds. Shneidman shows us why, and what we can do about it
  • In the wake of books about depression, this volume explains why the final step is taken, in a very moving and evocative portrait of an exclusively human response to pain
