I felt as if I was reading a "report" from the internet and not an informative book on PTSD. Too much political bias for me, could have done w/out that, very slick job. There were a few interesting and valid view points and facts, but the meat and potatoes of this book could have been written in 20 pages in bullet format. I don't care much for reading books that are a compilation of information from other books. I have read many of her sources books and found them far more helpful and valuable.

I am a strong supporter of our military and understand PTSD and it's affects all too well. I have lost two Soldiers to suicide upon return from Iraq. If I weren't already in the mix I am not so sure this book would "move" me to care, I was hopeful by the title and reviews that it would inspire others to do just that "care" more and get involved. At some points I felt like I was reading anti-war, anti-American rhetoric and not about PTSD. The bias in the media and our own politicians wanting this war to be failure has hurt our Troops more than anything. I do agree Rumsfeld was an idiot and screw up in her political expressions.

I found no inspiration in this book, other than to agree the DOD needs to start tracking suicides of our Veterans post deployment, some are hard to call like high speed car accidents late at night, intentional or accident? I do agree more of us need to put pressure on the VA and politicians to force the VA to function properly now and not later, but again nothing in this writing stirred any fire from within. Maybe if PTSD and war is new to you it might, I can only hope.

Enough already w/understanding and research of PTSD, we have enough information and it's time to start progressive, productive treatment and support.

Much has been learned about PTSD but there is much more that should be understood, especially as to Combat PTSD, for anyone who experiances a traumatic event can develope the lasting effects.

Many of us 'Nam Vets and those from that time have been helping our brothers who suffer from and trying to get more of the populations involved, for PTSD knows no borders.

Ilona has written a must have referance book for this generations Military personal, with fighting going in two theaters and multiple tours, and for the Public as well.

War brings on extreme trauma, not only for Military Personal but the Innocents as well. It changes ones being and inner soul, completely reversing what was taught from young age, It Changes Ones Being and Mind!

This generation must come together in better understanding to hopefully save the next generations!

Soldiers and their families love Moving a Nation to Care. They look at this easy to read, easy to understand book as a WORKBOOK, a RESOURSE GUIDE, and, in some cases, a MIRROR to their own on-going experiences.

In early May of this year I gave two copies of Ilona Meagher's book to the top Sergeants of two locally-based military units which had recently returned from Iraq. I hoped that they would read the book, but knew they might not. Each of them read it. Their wives read it. It took them weeks to get through it. The material was helpful, the resources excellent, and the information relevent to their own problems and the problems the members of their unit were having. One wife was afaid that her marraige was skidding out of control. The book opened the door to conversations with her husband she never believed possible.

When I talked with one of those Sergeants and offered to get more copies for his unit if he wanted them, he lept at the chance. Through our local Elks Lodge we are furnishing 20 copies of the book to his unit.

Is this book any good? Ask a soldier who has read it. "Yep. It sure is."

The book arrived on time, and in perfect condition. The book was just as described. I haven't finished it yet, but the information is very complete, very interesting history of PTST. The book is a few years old, but, as written in the history, this disorder has been around since war, and disasters, and people have been around. And it's good to know that we now are beginning to get a grasp of the devastation that can occur during and after life altering chaos, and that can last forever. Thank you Jami Conroy

There is a terrible repetiviness in this book. Every story in this book talks about end with a Veteran commiting suicide. Having served in the Marines but never in war I know the importance of talking care of fellow Marines. This lesson is lost on many others.his is the type of bin you read and then pass on to someone else.

This small book is no longer cutting edge but is an excellent read regardless. Ilona's research and concise writing was instumental in bringing the true scope of Post Tramatic Stress Disorder to light. The fact that we are doing positive things to help our returning soldiers today is at least in some measure due to this book. Plus, it is an easy read! Borrow it or buy it... but, read it. Warning, it will be hard not to care after reading this!
