I've been struggling with depression, anxiety, and nightmares for most of my life, but I never really understood what it was. This book described my illness almost exactly. At times, it felt like the authors were reading my mind. At other times, they wrote about stuff that I'd never considered but which was still really helpful. It goes into some of the medical aspects of PTSD, but the book is always clear, even for us laypeople. I can't recommend this book highly enough.
