Summary

In Put Away The Razor: Surviving Suicidal Thoughts and Beating Back Depression One Day at a Time, Kassman describes her own battle with depression.

She describes how she overcame depression, and provides depression management techniques and resources. This is both for fellow sufferers and well as loved ones seeking to understand the depression and suicidal feelings their loved one is experiencing.

Depression in the United States is still commonly treated as an imaginary disorder even though the Depression Alliance states that it is very common. Depression affects 1 in 5 people at some point during their lifetime.

Far too basic and a mere explication of the obvious, the book really is just stating the obvious.

Given that the underlying theme dominating ones pursuit of negative thoughts is emotional, it rarely works to try to shape a person rationally during their irrational jump to pursue a quick fix. The book has the danger of misleading others into believing they are capable of breaking this vicious cycle themselves. The reality is that it also endangers people in this mind frame of believing that every single one is strong enough to break the cycle without seeking genuine help.
