Review by Niens Now

3/4 Stars

I admired the author’s brutally honest portrayal of the industries involved. She’s also not afraid to tackle topics like religion, metaphysics, and spirituality. Every topic in the book has been meticulously researched. Every issue is covered in great depth, whether it be moral principles, the purpose of the soul, or philosophers’ perspectives. Through these explorations, the author succeeds in persuading the reader that PTSD is an existential crisis rather than a psychiatric disorder.

I admire the uniqueness of the book. It was written from the basis of the author’s experience as a PTSD patient. She relates the things that went through; the pain and the lessons that she learnt, and how her journey of healing. Writing this book was a way of helping those that might be going through the same thing. This is what I love most about the book. The author wrote things that PTSD patients can easily relate to and find helpful, not something based only on facts and head knowledge.

4/4 Stars

The book is very well-written, and as I said, it has been thoroughly researched. What I really like about it is how the author states her opinion firmly. She has written about how some medical professionals hide information about PTSD and urges everyone to ask as everyone should be informed about what they will be going through.

The book would be great for those who want to know more about PTSD therapy, and why most don’t work. You could also try the author’s methods on yourself but I choose to hold that they might not work on another person.

3/4 Stars

I couldn’t help but get captivated by the author’s varied approaches to healing PTSD. She goes against the “doctor knows best” fable that causes one to ignore the innermost self, where the solution lies. It blinds one to the need for isolation necessary to the PTSD healing process that those who hold sway over one’s life steadfastly refuse to grant. She also explains key terms and ideas that help the reader be more knowledgeable about PTSD. She does not fail to cite references that are aimed at provoking the reader’s perspective on mental health issues and services. Her healing process and survival story act as a beacon of hope for people battling PTSD.

3/4 Stars

The author’s writing style was highly detailed and you can tell that everything is well-researched. Her writing is eloquent and she uses many high-level vocabularies in her book. However, the author takes her time to explain and elaborate on each topic, which made even the more complex terminology easy to understand. The knowledge I gained from reading this book is tremendous.

If we must die, if we build our own world, and if each of us is ultimately alone, then what meaning does life have? This is the heavy burden that the people afflicted with post-traumatic stress disorder must grapple with in order to live, in order to ascend from a lower level of egocentric human existence to a more altruistic way of living. I really appreciated the author’s candid and well-spoken argument in every chapter of this book.

I […] appreciate the author’s effort in making me discover the loopholes in the mental health sector. How most of their diagnosis has been based on mere inferences. Though the author stated that the book is not to be used as a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment, I believe her theories could be a modern and effective method to deal with PTSD.

3/4 Stars

I was impressed with the amount of research the author has put into this book. I loved the spiritual healing process espoused by the author. To state that PTSD experience is indeed an opportunity of a lifetime was extremely bold on the author’s part. This positive reinforcement, an opportunity to investigate and forgive Self, will act as a great source of motivation for PTSD survivors. Through this book, the author has tried to share with her audience an opportunity to create a Self exactly to one’s own liking. This was the part I enjoyed most in the book. 

Review by Jasper Armstrong

Yet another book that proves that even the noblest of practices are driven not by the need to help others but the greed of gaining profit, it took me a while to digest the contents…
