The Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Fallacy is a non-fiction written by H. Nattanya Andersen. The book is written in first-person narration. This is about a first-hand experience of a Flight Attendant of North American Airways (NorArm), who was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. An engine explosion five feet away from her, and promising death for 144 passengers, was the main reason for her to get diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Her story of how she survived with the psychological treatments, is described in the book. The book is a research study about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
By reading the book, the readers can learn many facts and information related to Psychology and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Even this book has a separate page of bibliography at the end, that contains the resources the writer has referred to when writing the book. The book is a research and a theoretical approach in all aspects, psychologically, biologically, genetically, socially, religiously, etc. “Kazimierz Dabrwoski (1902 – 1980) a Polish psychologist and physician, developed the theory of Positive Disintegration.” (Chapter. 1). Information about many psychologists and psychiatrists are mentioned in the book. H. Nattanya Andersen has written about Death, reincarnation, Soul, Karma and Dharma. But the writer is not biased to any specific religion and therefore, anybody from any religion could read the book. Further, the writer has used separate bullets to mention the important facts, to make it easy for readers. The book is well structured. This could help readers to overcome distress and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
As for naming negatives, H. Nattanya Andersen has used many abbreviations, such as PTSD, MMPI, WCB, they are expanded only once and sometimes the readers could forget the meanings. The story consists of names of psychological findings, which would sometimes be complex for some of the readers, who are not familiar with psychological studies.
This is very interesting, and the readers can learn many facts about psychology, mental disorders, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, psychologists and their teachings. The book is exceptionally well edited. Considering the above mentioned negatives, I rate The Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Fallacy by H. Nattanya Andersen 3 out of 4 stars.
