Review by Cleigh

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Fallacy is written by H. Nattaya Anderson. Its main focus comes apparent throughout the book and is based on how the disorder affects innocent individuals in their day to day lives. The author conducts this piece of literature and describes in explicit detail how the condition affected her life and the changes she had to make to be able to overcome life with it. This saddening condition is a known mental health issue and affects many individuals some of which have fought for our rights and our country. The book looks at all the evidence and focuses the mind on the question: Do we have a known cure for such a condition? This book begins to answer the question in slow motion and digs deep into the life of the author and how she had used her previous knowledge and understandings to overcome the barrier she faced when dealing with the mental health condition.

Throughout the book the author has made it quite clear that by no means should the book be judged as a substitute for diagnosis of any kind, nor should it be used for treatments that may be recommended for such a condition, this is not the reason the writer wrote this. Digging much deeper into the book it begins to display very detailed explanations relating to post-traumatic stress syndrome and this can be seen was very educational.

From this boom, it provides a staggering amount of detail linking to the post-traumatic stress syndrome and the many effects influenced by antidepressants which the book had a whole section diverted to it. When I first saw the book I was instantly attached to it because I wanted to gain extra knowledge of such a topic that I may later need to know for other life purposes. But I was astonished to find that every page I turned was worth the turnover. It is safe to say I was hooked.

This book sends out a bold and clear message suggesting that everyday individuals have to face this alone, not everyone is lucky to have access to help. The book penned by Anderson is designed to allow individuals to not feel isolated and lonely and to understand that they are not alone in the world when dealing with this condition. This education book is written in the first-hand format which allows it to feel original and from a bird’s eye view. This book does have the ability to help individuals overcome barriers similar to those brought forward from the author.

This book has many positive attributes connected to it which I enjoyed the most. It was quite difficult to pin point exactly which were the most intriguing because the book in itself was amazing, however, the most important attribute I thought was astonishing and worth the mention was that the author uses her own experiences to help others understand her feelings towards this condition that affects many of us. Also I paid attention to how the author had introduced the reader to an outstanding amount of relevant information which helps to connect the reader to the author when describing the condition and the significant impacts it has.

All in all, having considered the attributes I found within the book as a whole I could not find a thing I did not like about it therefore this Influenced my recommendation and for that matter, I would like to award this book 3 out of 4 stars. A star was deducted from the overall rating purely because of a couple of typos within the text. However the book could do with a once over with spell check and it will deem a professionally edited book. I think that the book would be more suited to those who would like to gain a little more understanding of PTSD and its importance, however, it would also be more suited to those who are dealing with the mental health condition because I think they would benefit from this.
