While still weak thin and questioning a letter arrived from the Australian Defence Force. It was an invitation to embed with Australian forces in Iraq and also an invitation to a new career and a calling one that would allow Ben to ask deep questions about life connection and the morality of people who have also visited the precarious edge of human experience. Combining autobiography reportage and science Ben Mckelvey tells his personal story along with research about psychology physiology and neuropathology. He shares intimate stories about people who have dealt with illness or trauma and some who are moulding our understanding of ourselves. In the telling Ben investigates trauma change and resilience. This is a powerful book for anyone who has ever been broken and hoped to find themselves remade.
