    I commend the author Kenneth Thompson for sharing his personal plight with PTSD with the world. Nevertheless, on a scale of 1-5, I'll have to give this book a 2. The Man in the Mirror: Lost Soldier was poorly written. It was quite choppy, some parts of the book did not flow, a few stories appeared to be partly fabricated, and there were a few grammatical errors. As an avid reader, I cannot ignore the inconsistencies with this author’s story. The author stated that his premise for writing this book was to share with the world his struggles with PTSD, to bring public attention to the matter, and to encourage those suffering from it to seek help. As I read the book, I had to remind myself that this book was supposed to be about PTSD and not sexual addiction. There were a few parts in the book that were worth reading, but the majority of the book discussed the author’s affairs and sexual encounters. Parts of the book did not make sense. For example, the author stated that PTSD has caused him to have unsuccessful relationships with women, but in reading the book, the author has had difficulty with maintaining healthy and nurturing relationships with women before he went to war in Iraq. Adult men that struggle to have healthy relationships with women almost always had dysfunctional relationships with their mothers. The author’s relationship with his mother as an adolescent may be the reason why he cannot have healthy and durable relationships with women today. He may want to analyze the current relationship he has with his mother. In the latter part of the book, the author stated that he is in a life partnership, but he never stated whether this was his first homosexual relationship. If so, maybe it did not work out because he was confused about whether he wanted to spend the rest of his life with a man or continue to have sex with various women. Overall, in my opinion, the author wrote this book to tell the world about his sexual escapades and to bring shame to people by bashing them in a “tell-all” book. He just used PTSD and his military career as a platform to cover it up and to get people to support and purchase his book. Now that’s not being patriotic. As a military spouse, I’m disappointed that anyone would do something like this.
