(Ret’d) Cousineaus' PTSD, and continues through the final chapters where it concludes with his fight for PTSD awareness and the awareness of the importance of service dogs. Although it is a book about PTSD and its effects, its main subject is the importance of service dogs in the process of rehabilitation and the author's efforts to implement better therapy processes for veterans.
