Inhaltsangabe

At a time when hopelessness and suicide are on the rise, just hold on gives unique and practical insight into some of the deep questions surrounding the dark reality of suicide. Have you ever wondered what goes on in the mind of a person who is suicidal? What would drive someone to make such a permanent decision? What if you came face to face with someone who was threatening suicide? Would you know what to do? Are you suicidal? 

What if I gave you five really good reasons not take your own life? Would you hear me out? Have you ever thought about those who are left behind after a loved one has taken his or her own life? Is the grief they bear different from the grief caused by other ways of death? In the midst of their deep loss and often times hounding guilt, how can we comfort them? 

Through interviews with people who have been there, just hold on attempts to tackle these hard questions with real answers that cut through the dark cloud of depression and desperation. If you're weary and tired of life, or know someone who is, then this is the perfect audiobook for you. Listening to it will help you find ways not only to hold onto life today, but also to have real joy in living tomorrow. Peace and a better life await you if you "just hold on".

Aims at religious readers; not my cup of tea

This book is about someones thoughts and experiences with suicide/tiredness of life. She coped with them mainly through religion, and wants to share that experience. Knowing that, I expected some deep thoughts regarding the matter or some insightful comments concerning using the believe into an almighty as a coping technique (as I used it several years ago from time to time). However I found the book superficial and simplistic:
- the coping techniques she offers are mostly simple attention diversion and activation exercises and are sometimes flawed
- arguments use emotionality or biblical analogies instead of thought
- I found generally not much own thought but just religious analogies copied onto real life circumstances
- the author offers several good life and behavioural guiding ideas but never argues them (other than with "because god said so")
- no significant neurological, philosophical or psychological insights


The book is probably a good read/listen for any religious person who has already the right mindset. However for me it was rather disappointing offering me nothing at all in regards to life philosophy.

Read this book first

Before you do something you regret. Very well written book that can help people with suicidal thoughts and give them hope.
