Great Follow up
Would you listen to From Baghdad to America again? Why?
I would defo listen again. This was a great followup to From Baghdad with love as well it explored the topics on PTSD and TBI which are usually not spoken about with in the context of men and women serving in the forces. Working myself in the Mental Health field this was a wonderful admittance of the realities faced by returning Force memebers. I enjoyed this and Kopelman is hilarious!
Who was your favorite character and why?
Of course Kopelman. He is a ruff rugged Marine who finaly admits he needs help.
What does Christopher Lane bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
You can just imagine exactly what is going on as he reads it, the voices, the intonation was all just perfect!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes but I listed to it in fouir... Two days in a row on the way to and from work!
Any additional comments?
Loved it and you should read it too.

Too much Jay, not enough Lava.
I really enjoyed the earlier book, about the travails of bringing the treasured dog to the US from Iraq, but this one is too much of a self-help book and, from this standpoint, not very original. It's really life lessons after Lava, not from Lava.I can understand why Mr. Kopelman would want to write a follow-up memoir about what happened to him upon returning to the US, but as much as I got through, I didn't see any real link to Lava, which was what interested me.
