I am a totally disabled Vietnam combat vet, suffering with PTSD. This book is the most informative, clearly written, and understandable book that I have ever read on PTSD and the effect it can have on your family members. Nobody really understands what PTSD is all about and the devistating effect it has on a combat vet's life. It is a must read for everyone ( then maybe we would be shown the respect we earned 40+ years ago).
