The author makes numerous interesting points such as the fact that depression does not cause suicide but rather is correlational and how, more specifically, hopelessness is causal. I liked his references to Edwin Shneidman, but he made these references excessively. He repeats what I consider to be theoretically interesting but not particularly clinically pragmatic, and that is the analogy of respondent and operant conditioning to the purpose orientation of the suicidal person. I liked his inclusion of Prochaska et al's theoretical stages of change and his integration of a case study with this orientation. If I learned something of significant value it was the fact that it is critically important to respectfully keep the suicidal person talking, the essence of relationship, and how that process intrinsically builds hope. Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone doing clinical work with suicidal individuals.
