Lots of interesting ideas thrown around, and a few ridiculous ones. By design not very coherent.

This book questions suicide prevention. It examines the death experience. It approaches the suicide problem not from the viewpoints of life, society and mental health, but in relation to death and the soul.

Page four is enough to tell me I do not need to read this book.
To quote the author, "this book shall maintain that we are less damaged by the traumas of childhood by them then by the traumatic way we remember childhood"

This author clearly has never been sent into Panic by a sound or smell that took him directly back to a bathroom door flying open and the stench of drugs or garbage and stale cigarettes, complete with roaches, as a young child.
