While not a vet, I was able to relate and appreciate this story beyond my expectations. Listening to this story touched me to tears and laughter. I realize I probably suffer from a different form of PTSD and for the first time am considering seeking out counseling. Luis, your story also has increased my dedication to contribute to DAV and now looking forward to volunteering for them in some capacity. I pray all is going well for you and Tuesday. ~Loretta
I got the book because of my love of animals, but especially dogs. As I read the book through though, I got to learn about what the Army Captain went through in his life caused by the ptsd from the war that he fought in. His story was heartwarming and brutal also. He was very strong and brave the way he had to stand up for his rights ...and just to be heard.
My favorite parts would have to be hearing about this remarkable dog.. His training, how he helped, all the commands he knew, how he could sense if something was wrong physically or mentally,
The funniest story which the Captain captured so well, was about the other dog in their building and how Tues. and he played with each other
Until they both dropped down of exhaustion. It was hilarious!
The Captain did an excellent job with the narration of this book.
This was an awesome book. As a veteran suffering similar issues I feel the author did a great job of explaining in detail on a simple level so others (non military) understand the struggle
Well the Dog of course!
That he didn't go into war stories very much. I don't know the name of guns or what different weapons are so in a book, descriptions seem to just bore me and I wonder off. He mostly talked about today and not the past.
When the bus driver wouldn't let him on the bus with his dog and he was trying to have a date.
I never do anything in one sitting
This book is amazing! It's not just an amazing story but an insight into a personal war that is not well known. It took amazing courage to tell and should be listened to. It brings out a range of emotions from empathy, to outrage and tears to laughter all in a compelling, interesting story. I loved it!
This is a book everyone should read. Read by the author himself & Tuesday his dog and how he made him human again.
