    Must Read For Anyone Concerned About PTSD.

    Surviving The Shadows indeed takes the reader on a journey of hope as its title suggests. Throughout its pages, Bob Delaney and his co-author, Dave Scheiber present real life tales of individuals across all walks of life who have been through hell and back because of post-traumatic stress. This book not only takes you inside first-hand accounts of PTSD, it also performs a valuable public service by detailing real life research and therapies that are available for those who need help and or for those who want to help others. Delaney easily connects with the reader by explaining his three decades of suffering from post-traumatic stress and the long-term struggle he battles with daily to lead a life not handicapped by depression and his psychological and emotional scars. For me, one of the most compelling aspects of Surviving The Shadows was the realization that the "average" individual can be just as susceptible to developing Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder as one of our country's first responders. Whether it stem from the death of a loved one, a severe car accident or a string of events that lead to depression, PTSD is all around us and if you do not know someone who is experiencing symptoms of post-traumatic stress, chances are you soon will. Delaney adamantly advocates for "Peer To Peer" Therapy, where people need to communicate openly and honestly with others who have experienced similar circumstances. Only then will those who isolate themselves, a glaring symptom of PTSD sufferers, open the door to understanding that they are not alone and begin to heal through life's most potent medicine, a deep human connection. In a world leading up to and since 9/11, where many have been left behind because of the rush to return to "normal", Surviving The Shadows - A Journey of Hope into Post-Traumatic Stress holds us all accountable to do our part and help those who find it so hard to help themselves and give the silent sufferers of PTS and PTSD the voice they have been desperately seeking.
