Now the book isn't very deep. It only gives a reader a brief 10,000 foot look at the problem. At the back of the book the authors gives a reader other places to look for help or more information.
I especially liked the chapter on stress. What the authors had to say could help anyone, in or out of the military. The authors show the link between mind, body and sprite. They give great advice on what to do to mitigate the effects of stress on your life. You get tips on how diet, exercise, and support can help or adversely impact your fight against stress.
The material is very timely. Their is many references to battle in Iraq and Afghanistan. They even talk about the unique issues facing the Reservist and National Guardsman. That angle is almost always forgotten but this book covers that too.
Great book, a must for anyone of any rank in the military. If a person has issues with how to handle stress they also will enjoy this book.
