If someone close to you has taken their life, you need to read this book. There are no cliches here. No pap. This is an in- depth report, based on years of study and experience in the field, on the clinical route that ends in suicide and why your intervention may not have made a difference.
Dr. Hillman shows us the path the soul took to the brink and explains why they could not turn back...unless they stood at the edge and chose to turn away.
I have read many books that sought to confort the bereaved. This book allows us, as the tormented survivors, a smidgeon of insight. The kind of insight that makes some sense of the senseless act. I don't know Dr. Hillman, although I certainly read some of his other work after reading this book; but I owe him a dept. This book is a gift. I hope you find it as remarkable as I did.

This is the most influential book I have read regarding clinical practice. After reading it, I was in awe of how anyone can think let alone write so profoundly. It is not just about suicide, but speaks of how experience and developmental transitions shape our existence. Although breathtakingly compassionate and sophisticated regarding the joys and pains of living, I didn't find the content at all sentimental. This book is highly absorbing, frequently moving and extremely original in its perspective on various concepts. Ideas are introduced well, with examples that make it accessible to anyone regardless of their professional or personal reasons for reading "Suicide and the Soul". It can be a challenge in terms of the concepts, beliefs and emotions related to the material as would be expected. I am astounded at the age of this book; given how contemporary its viewpoints are on the matter. There is just as much value in this book to learn more about living and life, as death and suicide. Obviously, I would recommend reading the book.....at least once.

Hillman delivers - and like many Jungian writers, he wanders all of soul's territory and Jung's theories. It's provocative and insightful.
