This review asserts that the book is very useful for any professional who deals with suicidal people. The use of the Arthur Inman case study in the introduction provides an entertaining quality to the book since the reader is able to keep the case in mind while reading the chapters and forming his own opinions about the case. The most useful chapters in the book are believed to be 4, 9, & 16, while chapter 5 is frowned upon because therapy and crisis intervention are not properly differentiated.
