Three books are reviewed, Suicide Across the Life Span, Women and Suicidal Behavior, and The Suicidal Mind. Suicide Across the Life Span provides readers with a panoramic view of suicide across the different ages of life, over the past 3,000 years. Women and Suicidal Behavior brings women into the forefront and the final section contains two very good chapters on prevention and postvention. The Suicidal Mind is a gallery of protraits in an impassioned, impressionistic style.
