Review by: Elizabeth Rowan Keith on Nov. 07, 2012 :
How well I remember this era, and the difficulties that came from it. This book is a must read for anyone touched by the Vietnam generation. It contains an honest account of the effects of that war on not only military personnel, but also on those of us who have been in relationships with them. Don Bick's descriptions of Post Traumatic Stress symptoms would be helpful to anyone who comes through intensely traumatic times. I applaud Don Bick's courage to heal. Than you, Don, for writing this book. I highly recommend it.

Review by: Suzy Stewart Dubot on April 12, 2012 :
Being of a similar age to the author and having been well aware of the war in Viet Nam, this story affected me perhaps more than someone younger. I read it in one day...
A young man who had a promising future before entering the war, returns from Viet Nam a changed person. He will spend the next 42 years of his life as a misfit.
These memoirs are well documented so that one is drawn into the hopelessness resulting from a war fought by so many young, impressionable people. Mr. Bick has struggled on when so many others have fallen for one reason or another. I am quite humbled by his will to survive when up against so much adversity and ignorance.
