Poignant True Story by Journalist Gravely Injured in Iraq
Michael Weisskopf's true story about his coverage of Iraq during which he comes under fire and loses his hand draws the reader into his life and keeps him there till the last page. The grisly facts and the heroic military men he meets throughout his journey not only shed light on the sad truths of war, but place the reader directly into Michael's shoes. A great read for anyone wanting to know what really happens to soldiers in a contemporary war.

As an occupational therapy student I was required to read this book, to hopefully give us some perspective and insight into what some of our future clients may be dealing with.
I loved the content of the book. I felt that it laid out what these men went through after serving over seas. The only big issue that I had for the book was all the jumping around. It is incredibly hard to keep track of all the men Weisskopf talks about when he jumps from one person to another in the same chapter. But since that is an editorial thing and not a content issue, I am giving it 4 stars simply because of the difficulty of the reading.

Have some kleenex handy. A very well written book. My husband loved it, too.

Mr. Weisskopf writes a truely remarkable account of what it is like to go from the battle field through the medical, recovery process. As a surgical technician & Vietnam vet I found his story to be inspiring and very moving. The medical aspects were right on the money!!
Thank you, Mr. Weisskopf, for a wonderfully touching story. I hope you have been able to put to rest the "Why & What If" questions. As far as I'm concerned the motivation doesn't matter. You're a HERO!!!

Incredible insight helps the author share this story
As an amputee for the past 4 years or so, I know a few things about the story told by this book. But I was unprepared to be as moved as I was. Michael not only tells the story of how, but he digs deeper into the demons that made him and Pete so much more real.
I don't have war experience, I just had a simple accident. The demons these men fight to get to a place where they can accept the things that happened make this a very powerful story. I highly recommend it to anyone. And I've recommended it to several close friends in hopes they might better understand what it's like to loose part of yourself.
