    No, David! No!

    Targeted at a younger audience - probably early teen / tween. It has a lot of data in it. Feels very much like the type of source material that you would use for a junior high research paper. Some of the information was useful. Overall though, it did not seem to give a lot of conclusions or specific insights. At the same time, not a bad resource if a younger person wants an overview of suicide.

    Meant for young adult readers, but it has very good information concerning suicide. There are separate chapters devoted to suicide in children and teens and suicide in adults rather than lumping the age groups together. There is also a chapter on suicide in the military.

    Meant for young tweens, however, it is very insightful for those of us who work in education. Will put this book on display in the library.

    While this tiny volume includes a lot of information, it is incredibly dry. It's less than 100 pages long, and it took me almost a month to slog through it. Good to use as source material, but definitely not recommended for recreational reading. While this tiny volume includes a lot of information, it is incredibly dry.
