Tomas Young's WarBook - 2016
"Based on hours of interviews with Tomas Young and those close to him, Tomas Young's War puts the reader alongside Young as he struggles with life as a paralyzed veteran, suffering frustration and humiliation as he attempts to reenter society and resume as normal an existence as possible. It shows his fight to balance his precarious health with his drive to speak out for veterans' care and against the war and the impact his catastrophic injuries had on his family and his relationships. This emotional and powerful book sheds light on many crucial but often overlooked issues including veterans' care and public attitudes toward the disabled, medical marijuana, and the terminally ill"--Front flap.
