2.0 out of 5 stars Pop psychology at its worst, March 2, 2012
This review is from: The PTSD Breakthrough: The Revolutionary, Science-Based Compass RESET Program (Paperback)
This book should be titled "Buy the device I invented". It pushes a device called the BAUD that, while FDA approved, does not have any testing behind it. Did I mention that it was also "invented" by the author? Being a sufferer of PTSD, having been through therapy for many years, a veteran, and also being a psychology student pursuing a graduate degree, I find this book to be offensive and dangerous. There is no magic bullet to cure PTSD as this book seems to be pushing, and yes I read it cover to cover. Do your research before buying this quack's book.

Thank you so much for your review of this book. I think that purchasing & reading this book would actually assist in researching PTSD. I, too, am a sufferer of PTSD & have been for years. That being said, I am all too willing to read anything & everything I can get my hands on & do research on anything & everything that is out there & try anything & everything that could potentially help me regarding PTSD & potentially (hopefully! Keeping my fingers crossed!) cure this horrible horrible affliction, I'm sure you are as well. What I'm trying to say here is that maybe Dr. Lawlis' techniques, while not being helpful for you, could possibly be helpful for someone else. As with any diagnosis, what works for one individual may not work for another, and if Dr. Lawlis can help even one person suffering with PTSD, then I would hate for that one person to read a negative review, not read this book because of a negative review & miss out on the one treatment that could change that person's life for the better. Please please please don't take this as a criticism, because that is not at all what this is. All I'm saying is that keeping an open mind regarding what could be a life changing treatment for even one person is something that I hope all of us suffering with PTSD, & those of us who have, or are, studying psychology, are willing o do. I think that Dr. Lawlis, along with many others researching, treating, suffering with, etc, PTSD just want to help people & do their best to make other people's lives better, happier &, at the very least, manageable. I, personally, appreciate anything that is being done, tried and/or offered in relation to treating/curing PTSD & am very willing to try most anything that could assist in managing PTSD. I have requested the scientific data related to Dr. Lawlis' method in this book, and have done some "digging" regarding the testing behind Dr. Lawlis' methods described in this book, and have found that he has, in fact, had success in treating PTSD using this method, and I think that is proof enough that this can work for some individuals. Maybe not all individuals, but again, even if only one person can benefit from this method, it's definitely worth it.
