This book review notes that the scholarly research in this book provides mental health practitioners/academic with a comprehensive “state of the art” overview of the complex multidimensional nature & context of suicide in a well-structured format. It provides a perspective of risk factors involving the interplay of psychodynamic, biophysical & sociological factors. For practitioners, the most facilitative aspect of the book is the use of 5 case studies of individuals for discussion throughout.
