Thomas E. Ricks Defense correspondent, "The Washington Post" Should be read by anyone interested in the effects of combat on troops or in the meaning of Homer's works -- and by everyone who wants to better understand today's United States.

"Library Journal"

[A] fresh take on a literary classic.



Gregory Nagy

Professor of classical Greek literature, Harvard University

A true American "Odyssey."



Richard Rhodes

Pulitzer Prize-winning author of "Why they Kill" and "The Making of the Atomic Bomb"

A brilliant successor to Shay's groundbreaking "Achilles in Vietnam."



Asa Baber

Vietnam-era marine veteran and the Men columnist for "Playboy"

One hell of a book. It is well written, honest, healing, and aimed at all of us who have trouble handling the stress of our crazy world.

Steven Pressfield

Author of "Gates of Fire" and "Last of the Amazons"

Jonathan Shay plumbs the Odysseus myth for healing, working the real-life agonies of his own clients at the V.A. in Boston into the wisdom left to us by Homer. An important book.



Lieutenant General Bernard E. Trainor

USMC, retired, "Marine Corps Gazette"

Groundbreaking work in understanding, preventing, and treating mental injuries....Leaders at all levels would profit from a journey with both Achilles and Odysseus. Homer and Jonathan Shay are excellent tour guides.

Reseña del editor:

In this ambitious follow-up to Achilles in Vietnam, Dr. Jonathan Shay uses the Odyssey, the story of a soldier's homecoming, to illuminate the pitfalls that trap many veterans on the road back to civilian life.
Seamlessly combining important psychological work and brilliant literary interpretation with an impassioned plea to renovate American military institutions, Shay deepens our understanding of both the combat veteran's experience and one of the world's greatest classics.
