Summary
Suicide remains one of the biggest killers in the Western world, yet we struggle to talk about the factors that lead someone to take their own life. More often than not, it is negative social evaluations - real or imagined - that drive us to such an extreme course of action. So what is it about the human brain that means that we may not only entertain suicidal thoughts but, in some cases, actually act upon them? Here, psychologist Jesse Bering dispels the silence and shame that surround the subject of suicide. Combining cutting-edge scientific research with investigative journalism and first-person testimony, Bering seeks to provide a better understanding of the suicidal mind
