Jimmy, I got more out of this book, than I did from all my ten years of therapy

- Northern Ireland veteran

Watching one’s child suffering PTSD is a heartbreaking experience. It made me feel totally inadequate as a mother, as I could not take away the pain, fear, hurt, anger etc. of my child. I also believed this anger was directed at me personally and found it difficult to understand. The Survival Guide gave me, in words that I can understand, a greater knowledge of PTSD, showing me how to help myself deal with PTSD and therefore help and support my child.

Thanks for the Guide, I think it’s great and the first time I read it I thought you had wrote about my life, I could see so much of me in it.

- Northern Ireland veteran

Thanks and it’s a good thing you are doing – the Guide explained things to me the psychiatrists failed to do, it made sense.

- Gulf War veteran

Only soldiers can talk to soldiers and understand. Thanks, there are a lot of hurt men out there who need help.

- Veteran soldier

I felt your experiences as if my own, as I had a career as an Infantry Officer in the Punjab Regiment and fought a messy war in 1971 with India. I spent two years in captivity as a POW and your Guide has enormously helped me.
