Product description

Review

"In Building a Life Worth Living, Marsha Linehan shares her experience of suicidal depression to help others who may be experiencing this themselves or someone they love. Since using what happens to us to help others is the final stage of healing, this book is a victory on both sides of the page."--Gloria Steinem, New York Times bestselling author of My Life on the Road

"A brilliant memoir by one of the greatest pioneers in psychotherapy history. Marsha Linehan holds absolutely nothing back, making good on the vow she made as a young woman to escape hell and help others do the same. This book--with its fierce honesty and, for the careful reader, practical advice--will help anyone who has struggled to build a life worth living."--Angela Duckworth, New York Times bestselling author of Grit

"To read this book is to understand how a life is built. In dark, there is light. Everything in Marsha Linehan's life and remarkable memoir uncovers the dark--the hell of the unhappy self and the hell of inadequate help--and brings us into the light, with humor and detail in her grappling and growth, and in her courage and vision of how to create a treatment for even the most unhappy of us."--Amy Bloom, New York Times bestselling author of White Houses
