This book is excellent. It explains the symptoms of PTSD, helps you understand why they occur, and provides plenty of exercises to help reduce symptoms. The exercises can be quite exhausting, as they are (in my opinion) the most emotionally challenging but healing component of the book. In all, I HIGHLY recommend this book. If you are even slightly hesitant, please purchase it!! However, I do want to note that this isn't the type of book where you can do it all over a few days. It's very intense, and triggering, and you may only be able to do a couple of pages at a time. Best wishes in your healing process!

My 1-star rating isn't indicative of the whole book, but I feel the need to warn people from the outset.
