This is a very powerful memoir of war and home, describing the development of "the crazy" and attempting to cope with it. This is a very personal and introspective memoir that goes into the mind and emotions much deeper than the movie "The Hurt Locker" - though they both are saying the same thing. This memoir also provides an interesting perspective on the attitudes and beliefs described in Sebastian Junger's "War" (read it also.) Highly recommended for anyone interested in the psychology of war as well as technical aspects of bomb demolition.
