Good overview of a range of modalities

4 stars

While I want to go back and write some summaries (notably of the different modalities), the book was helpful in guiding some options already.

Given his longer history in this field of work he was able to weave a compelling story of the evolution and options for addressing PTSD. I, of course, kinda wish I could have a not-really-a-debate-but-multiple-view-points style book for these kinds of topics (psych[iatry|ology]). I appreciate the personal perspective (vs a dry textbook or encyclopedic one) for what it is (easier to read the whole them straight through) but acknowledge the biases that may result.

I did this as an audiobook and it actually worked pretty well given how structured the author was in their writing.
