From the heart and head.
on October 15, 2008
This essay combines the best of heart and head. For anyone wanting to understand the phenomena of trauma as a "lived" experience this book fulfills that promise. The author writes about his personal experience of traumatic loss. In a candid and open manner he describes how he and others make sense of that experience. Grounded in a well articulated phenomenological stance, he describes the profound change trauma evokes in worldview. It isn't just that our world is different, our very existence is changed. There is always a before and after, continuity is challenged. Well recommended.
