Free book!

Last month I wrote about a book by a very close friend. Learning that a friend attempted suicide is hard enough; reading about the ordeal and realizing how little you actually knew about this person is terrifying.

Ben is an amazing person — not because of his suicide attempt or his survival, but because of the enduring commitment he feels to share his story. Instead of capitalizing on his challenges he has written a powerful book and is now giving it away. For real. I urge you to read the manuscript — and then decide whether the charity Ben mentions is worth getting a few dollars in return.

I think they are.

(Consider this a belated pointer to Ben’s blog, which accompanies his book. Welcome to the blogosphere, Ben. It’s warm here. You’ll enjoy it!)
