Customer Reviews of Stay: A History Of Suicide And The Arguments Against It

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and Poetic treatise against suicide This book is a marvel. The author writes beautifully and uses cogent arguments, the history of literature, legitimate research and irreproachable penmanship to argue against suicide. Every page is edifying. The best parts are her chapters on suicide contagion, an incident of suicide is likely to result in more suicides and the duty to one's future self (if you end it all now you may be giving up what you could be one day). With the ongoing discussion about assisted suicide and the right to die this book could not be more timely. A must read.
