Why Suicide?: Answers to 200 of the Most Frequently Asked Questions about Suicide, Attempted S Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Almost all of us are touched at some point in our lives by suicide, whether it's the suicide or attempted suicide of someone we know, our own passing thoughts of suicide, or a heartfelt plea from a terminally ill loved one who wishes for a swift and painless end to life. No matter what the circumstances, those of us who are affected are left with difficult and disturbing questions. Why did they do it? Is there anything I could of done to prevent it? What should I tell people when they ask what happened? Is someone who attempts suicide likely to try it again? What should I do if I'm thinking of committing suicide? Can I get in trouble if I help a terminally ill loved one die? Without moral judgment, Why Suicide? offers lucid, thoughtful, and comprehensive answers to hundreds of questions about this complex and painful issue. Eric Marcus cuts through the veil of silence, examining the facts and figures and myths and rumors, shedding much-needed light on all aspects of suicide.

Synopsis:

“The need for this book is obvious. Why Suicide is a must read for anyone who is a student of life.”
— John Shelby Spong, author of Eternal Life: A New Vision—Beyond Religion, Beyond Theism, Beyond Heaven and Hell
