This autobiography focuses on the professional and personal life of Charles Neuringer, an American psychiatrist and suicidologist. Neuringer writes about his initial interest in suicide and the cognitive thought process, and discusses his dissertation based on the work of Edwin Shneidman. Neuringer worked for the Los Angeles Suicide Prevention Center for many years, but eventually took a teaching post in North Dakota, then returning to teach in his home town at the University of Kansas.
