From Library Journal:

Psychotherapist Egendorf is one of the principal authors of the 1981 Congressional study Legacies of Vietnam , and a coordinator of the first veteran rap groups in New York. In this study he synthesizes data relevant to the psychological effects of war-related trauma, and also employs his own intensely felt personal reflections as a Vietnam veteran as well as many short, passionate narratives by others. He focuses on the importance of transferring the warrior virtues of courage, commitment, and care to a cause beyond war: it is the risknot the antagonismof combat that makes for increased self-knowledge. Egendorf wants to encourage the disaffected veteran to become a provider, not a passive recipient of care, as an effective way to heal self-doubt and estrangement. He offers a moving and important document of our times. William Abrams, Portland State Univ. Lib., Ore.

From Publishers Weekly:

A Vietnam veteran, psychologist Egendorf conducted early "rap" sessions for returning vets. In this hope-filled book, he describes the stages of healing that have allowed many Vietnam vets to overcome the pains of war and resume normal lives. Writing with respect and affection for his fellow vets, and dismissing many stereotypes (there is no "average" vet, he insists), the author tells how diverse individuals have learned to talk openly about their war experiences as a way to understand and surmount them. Blending research, personal experiences and the observations of numerous writers, Egendorf offers a valuable manual for those who work with troubled vets, and an illuminating study of the still-open wounds of Vietnam.
