Beverly Cobain is a registered nurse, with certification in Psychiatric/Mental Health nursing. She is a survivor of three family suicides, including that of Kurt Cobain, the lead singer of the band Nirvana, who killed himself in 1994.

Bev resides in Costa Rica with her German Shepherd, Tosh.

Jean Larch, SWT, for the past two decades, has followed her passion at Macomb County Crisis Center as a Crisis Intervention Specialist, working closely with suicidal individuals and family members who have survived the loss of a loved one due to suicide. She has developed an acclaimed workshop on the subject of the suicidal mind, which continues to benefit both survivors and professionals.

    Emotional read

    This is a good book for someone struggling with suicidal thoughts or someone who is trying to help someone struggling with suicidal thoughts. It is very tough to read, however, if you have already lost someone to suicide.

    A must-read for anyone who has suffered a loss to suicide.

    This insightful book was an important part in the healing process for me after a close family member ended her life. It gives you an idea of what is going through someones mind when they are contemplating suicide. It also shares many other families' stories. It is a short, easy read. I know I will read it again.

    I Lost my 49 yr old brother & this book was a lifesaver!

    My brother died on 8/21/07. No one saw this coming and most people think of people who commit suicide as having mental illness all their lives. My brother was not that person and this book helps explain what is going on in the mind of the person who does this. It was very helpful.

    This book is the best one I have read about suicide. Wish I had

    This book is the best one I have read about suicide. Wish I had found this before buying so many others, as my family tried to heal from my son's suicide. Healing is slow and torturous, but there is progress. May peace come to all of you in time.
