What are some good books on either suicide or happiness (or the lack thereof), be it fiction or non-fiction.

I've heard nice things about Russell's book on happiness (the non-philosophy one where he just gives advice on happiness).

Something beyond Camus and Nietzsche (although if you're going to mention a specific work by the latter and not just mention his name go ahead) would be appreciated.

Also, don't recommend Seneca, Marcus, Epictetus or Epicurous.

Pic related, you can recommend him if you want.

How rude of me, thanks in advance folks!

If somehow you haven't read already, The Sorrows of Young Werther.

Why not Epicurus? Unless you've already read him of course.

Oh THAT'S what that meant.

>>7656474
Oh yeah, I'm looking for something fresh, I don't have anything against pleasure man.

>>7656453
That's the book that drove a suicide cluster in Germany right? Youth would dress up in Werther like clothes and off themselves like he did?

Start with the pre-Socratics
