This book contains 45 short essays which offer arguments & thoughts on why an individual should not commit suicide. For example, in the essay “Marilyn Monroe”, it is argued that although Monroe was glamorous, her suicide was not. Monroe suffered repeated childhood traumas including being abandoned & abused. Arena says that in spite of these experiences, Monroe did have a successful career & it is her fortitude in achieving this success that should be admired, not her suicide.
