Andy Grant set out to write a book to prevent suicide. Instead, he wrote an inspirational book that explains many secrets about life. His text should be mandatory reading for everyone who has gone through a depression.
Andy is a suicide attempt survivor. From a surprisingly early age, he thought about ending his own life and he tried to do it several times. These attempts and the related depressions that he experienced, made him spend time in five different mental hospitals throughout the course of his life.
Andy did not find many answers in the health system or in the traditional medications prescribed to people who share these symptoms. But somewhere along the trip, he found the answers that he needed and he managed to turn his life around.
In “Still Here”, Andy shares with us all the different tools that he uses every day to lead a happy and healthy life. His methodology is based in what he calls his “Six Keys to Loving Your Life”. These keys are nothing fancy, expensive or difficult; they are simple, but powerful things that all of us can incorporate in our daily routine without breaking the bank, going to specialized seminars or devoting more than some minutes a day.
While I already knew some of the tools mentioned in the book, the author managed to always bring a fresh point of view to all them. Other things, such as tapping, were new to me, but Andy explained everything in a simple and interesting way.
I didn’t know anything about suicide before reading this book and I was surprised by a lot of facts. It would seem that suicide is the war that humanity is losing: according to Andy more people are dying by their own hand than by war and homicide combined.
But I think this is a war that we can win, if we have the proper weapons to fight. To do that, “Still Here: How To Succeed in Life After Failing At Suicide”, by Andy Grant, should figure prominently in our arsenal.
Thank you for living a bright and courageous life, Andy.
