This interesting book compares the phenomena of suicide across cultures. The authors tear us away from our monocultural, ethnocentric perspectives in the United States by pointing out the stark differences in suicidal patterns in different cultures. For example, in the United States, 90% of completed suicides occur in people who have mental disorders, but this is far from true in other cultures.
