Reviews - What do customers think about Suicide The Forever Decision: For Those Thinking About Suicide, and for Those Who Know, Love, or Counsel Them?

Not For The Truly Desperate  Jan 7, 2008
I found this book disappointing. It might be okay for a person who is only slightly depressed. I actually laughed out loud when I got to the part where the author "helpfully" points out that there are suicide hotlines which are open. Ya think? Those hotline counselors are poorly trained although I am sure they mean well. I think they are mainly to call EMTs for life-threatening situations.

This might be worth a read, but I do not recommend it for someone who has unsolvable, daunting problems. I feel the author trivializes people's crises, although he claims not to.
 
definitely 5 stars  Sep 11, 2007
Quinnett's appraoch is straightforward. His knowledge of suicide is well-researched, especially the advice he lends to people thinking about or considering suicide. I rated this book 5 stars because it was so helpful and SO VERY thorough. -Chris Palmer, author VOICES BEYOND THE STREAM.
 
good ideas, some of which i hadn't thought of before but overall nothing new  Nov 16, 2006
i think this book i s very well intentioned. however i think it is written more for the average "lay" person, not those suffering from mental illness. at the risk of sharing too much about myself i suffer from some degree of treatment resistant depression as well as bi-polar disorder. trust me; it's not a boat you wanna be in. i have contemplated suicide a number of times (more than i can count) to just end the pain and while the book does have some valid points, when you're really down in the dumps and hurting like crazy (no pun intended) it is very easy to put all the advice in the book aside.
would i recommend the book? i'm not sure. however i would not discourage you either.
 
Don't DO IT  Feb 21, 2005
I've read some peoples reviews about how suicide can be an alright decision some of the time. That's perhaps the stupidest thing I've ever heard, suicide is nothing more than a copout no matter how you look at it or what. The reasons that people try to explain why someone commits suicide or wants to commit suicide aren't nessarily so black and white as 'someone not being happy with their body or just a general lonelyness. The fact is that suicide is an entirely selfish act whether you admit to it or not.

Now I'm not trying to look down on anyone who wants to or decides to kill themselves. I myself had thoughts of doing it in various parts of my life but I've realized as hard as it is to do sometimes you just gotta have faith in yourself and in life itself not some all knowing 'God' despite what others preach. We all have to find content in our lives no matter where we recieve it.

I hope people find this review helpful.
 
Patronizing Psycho-Babble  Nov 24, 2004
I bought this book, hoping that it might offer me some intelligent and persuasive help, but was dismayed by its banal psycho-babble. It may be a helpful book for someone who is new to therapy or who is not struggling with agonizing circumstances, but not for the self-reflective or truly pained.
