The madness : a memoir of war, fear and PTSD

Keane, Fergal2022
Books
Here is a powerful, probing book about PTSD. Fergal Keane has spent his adult life witnessing war, travelling through dangerous or devastated places and reporting the atrocities back to the rest of the world. In the course of those decades, he has lost friends, sustained injuries and experienced countless near misses. He has patched up colleagues and seen the worst of humanity: mothers robbed of their children and bodies mutilated. Along the way, he was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder. He would wake up, full of dread, in the night or have to pull over while driving, his hands shaking and his body threatening vomit. This book is an investigation into Fergal's own mental illness and the disorder that plagues millions.
