Recommends it for: Anyone who might have, or knows someone who has, suicide as an active word in their vocabulary.
Recommended to Doug by: Mentor; fellow veteran
As a retired Marine of nearly 30-years of service, the well roundedness of WARRIOR is heartfelt – heartfelt because many other books have fictional situations or examples to support one’s book; Doc Springer does not. She uses real people and real situations throughout her writing that substantiates the outcome. Simply put, WARRIOR is chock-full of empirical examples and not theoretical. This book is real.

What she shares has broad implications, not just for warriors, but for human mental wellnes

This is a wonderful and insightful book and a must read for anyone working with our returning Warriors. I would recommend this important resource not only for professional counselors and veterans service officers, but for the Warriors themselves, as well as their family members.

It will help you understand what so many don't understand about trauma, moral injury, survivor's guilt, and much more. She truly does help us understand how we can better "support those ...more

Have extra time to read while home during the pandemic. Terrible book not worth your money. Glad it was loaned to me to read, paying nothing. The author comes off as a know it all and an ego that everyone thinks she's an expert. She has at the most 8 yrs experience in govt, a place that cant fire people. I worked with several from the VA. Most of the popular Doctors and counselors don't find a need to write a book. I wonder how many people she 'helped' without taking advantage of them. ...more
