"Similar in organization to Robert O'Brien and Sidney Cohen's Encyclopedia of Drug Abuse ( LJ 9/15/84), this encyclopedia contains over 500 entries, simply written for the layperson. There's also a historical overview and appendixes listing suicide rates, methods, associations, and hotlines. To increase accessibility, co-authors Evans (a journalist) and Farberow (a director of the Los Angeles Suicide Prevention Center) include ample cross-references. Generally the comprehensive and current information examines the philosophical, religious, and psychological aspects of the subject, but much material relates to the arts, especially literature." -From Library Journal
