"This book will help to take away the veil of mystery and suspicion about a topic that now permeates all of society in times of constant and unremitting change and stress, suicides. The editor has done a magnificent job in demystifying this subject, and deserves our wholehearted support and gratitude." - Professor Cary Cooper, From the Foreword
"This valuable book has faced the subject, can be dipped into when required and offers help as well as a certain amount of comfort to anyone working with suicidal people." - Jenny Bloomer, Counsellor & Psychotherapist, Therapy Today, July 2008
"...a welcome and compassionate attempt to increase practitioners' understanding and confidence, as well as their clinical skill." - Emma Taylor, The Psychologist
"[Suicide:Strategies and Interventions for Reduction and Prevention] addresses many different aspects of suicide, though not in a systematic way...This book would be of greatest interest to readers who are broadly interested in depression and suicide."
-Joe Alford, in PsycCRITIQUES, December 3, 2008, Vol. 53, Release 49, Article 8
