WHAT DO THE REVIEWS SAY?:
In March 2016, Brian published his first book, a mix of memoir, self-help guide, and how-to manual. The book, with a chapter aimed at families and spouses co-authored by Cathy, details Brian's long downwards slide into PTSD. It recounts his recovery, the rebuilding of his family, and Brian and Cathy's post-traumatic growth into a couple who came through the darkness to start teaching a simple message - if you want to fight, PTS is not the end of your family, marriage, career, or life. You can come back from broken.
