Review by Kirsten M

The Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Fallacy by Andersen speaks about the fallacy towards the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, also known as PTSD . There is a misconception and misleading judgements that affect the views of the society towards diagnosing mental illnesses including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Depression, Schizophrenia, Anxiety, etc. However, the author’s analysis has overtaken every fallacy on mental illness based on the analysis of the research. This book also mention ways of coping from different diagnoses that will benefit those are prejudice on mental health as well as for those are suffering from it. 

The positive points includes the analysis of research throughout the book. One will get insights from every reference. As a woman who suffered an illness, I once hold the beliefs on other pages of the book. The science of the supernatural abilities still cannot outweigh pseudoscience. The antonym of life is inevitable indeed but can be challenged depending on the paradox of rage and joy of the individual. Planning ceased to exist since the beginning of time and without it, it would be a mess. It consists of evolution which existed since the beginning and where did beginning sprouted? The existence of a spirit that created existence- God. And of course, no one can fathom where existence came from as humans do not possess such ability. Though death exists, no amount of guilt can overtake the love we once had in life. That is my understanding and the truth. See, the book hinders prejudice and contains comparative on different theories based on beliefs.

In terms of negative points, there is nothing to point out as the book is well written and contains no grammatical errors which is why I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. Overall, I recommend this book to ages 18 and above as the content has complexity of which others would not understand and still holds prejudice.
