He was a successful psychologist and writer, with books to his name and bylines in major magazines. But none of that mattered. The impulse to take his own life remained. At times it felt all but inescapable. Bering survived. And in addition to relief, the fading of his suicidal thoughts brought curiosity. Where had they come from? Would they return? Is the suicidal impulse found in other animals? Or is our vulnerability to suicide a uniquely human evolutionary development? In 'Suicidal, Bering answers all these questions and more . . ."

'Reasons to Stay Alive' is his inspiring account of how, minute by minute and day by day, he overcame the disease with the help of reading, writing, and the love of his parents and his girlfriend (now wife), Andrea . . . Haig's frankness about his experiences is both inspiring to those who feel daunted by depression and illuminating to those who are mystified by it. Above all, his humor and encouragement never let us lose sight of hope. Speaking as his present self to his former self in the depths of depression, Haig is adamant that the oldest cliché is the truest - there is light at the end of the tunnel. He teaches us to celebrate the small joys and moments of peace that life brings, and reminds us that there are always reasons to stay alive."

No matter what the circumstances, those of us who are affected by suicide are left with difficult and disturbing questions: Why did they do it? Was it my fault? What should I tell people when they ask what happened? Is someone who attempts suicide likely to try again? What should I do if I'm thinking of killing myself? Drawing from his own experience, as well as interviews with people who have been touched by suicide, Eric Marcus cuts through the veil of silence and misunderstanding to bring clarity, reassurance, and comfort to those who so desperately need it."

We hear the voices of desperate traumatised people pushed to the limit of suicide who, via a stroke of fate, had their lives spared. We also hear from others left behind after suicide. Their personal stories told in the form of letters to Diego reveal much about the human spirit - its ability to find a way back from the darkest of places where everything seems lost. As Diego himself explains this is not a manual on psychopathology but instead a very human look at the deep complexities of suicidal behaviour and the struggle for psychological science to understand this worst of human tragedies. While sometimes taken in a coldly rational way, the decision to commit suicide is one built out of years of living. As such, Diego allows the reader to follow each of the 12 life stories in rich personal detail, adding his own interpretations and comments as a roadmap to guide the reader on the many messages these stories reveal."
