This book shed a lot of light on the different situations men and their friends and family go through. It helped give a broader understanding of what happens mentally and physically. I would have liked to have read more in depth how the survivors and their partners felt and went through during the “day to day” to really understand what changes and adaptions they faced. I would like to read more about all things small or expansive that they didn’t realize would change their daily lives. I would like to read even more detailed stories effecting their emotions around the physical changes.
