The reviewer of this book first outlines its strengths, particularly the inclusion of two comparative studies on adolescent adjustment, two studies on bereavement, & a discussion of the development of a suicide risk scale. The reviewer also felt the book has several shortcomings, such as straying from the topic of the book, misguided claims, research methodologies, & typographic errors. In the end, the editors are commended for providing an interesting addition to the limited literature on this subject.
