“This book tackles, head-on, a significant, high-priority clinical problem that many patients and therapists dread and avoid. It offers cool, clear thinking, immensely helpful to both patient and clinician, and dozens of practical, down-to-earth suggestions. A brave and extremely sensible book from which I learned quite a bit. I am delighted to have this ‘weapon’ in my armory when I work with suicidal patients.”
—Jacqueline B. Persons, Ph.D., Director, Center for Cognitive Therapy, Oakland, California
“Tom Ellis and Cory Newman have written a wonderful book. The writing is clear and the message in important. The authors are gifted clinicians, and their empathetic concern for depressed and suicidal people comes through on every page. Anyone who has contemplated suicide and anyone with a suicidal loved one will profit from the straightforward and helpful suggestions in this book.”
—Danny Wedding Ph.D., M.P.H., Director, Missouri Institute of Mental Health
“In the best tradition of giving psychology away, this easy-to-read book can help suicidal people understand their suffering while they take charge of their own healing. Some readers will need additional professional help, but all with benefit from Choosing to Live’s message of hope and reassurance that suicide is not the answer.”
—Paul G. Quinnett, author of Suicide: The Forever Decision

How many people thinking of suicide are going to take the time to read through a how to book before something dreadful happens? I just lost a daughter that way and wanted to find more information on what I should have been looking for in her behavior that might have led me to try and encourage her to seek professional help.
I couldn't, in good conscience, give it a recommendation.
