Diego De Leo
In this remarkable book, Professor Diego De Leo, distinguished Italian psychiatrist and tireless researcher into suicide prevention, takes us on a journey to the edge of reason and through into the light of salvation. 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 lows and highs, its ability to find a way back from the darkest of places where everything seems lost.
