I could not get past 10 minutes. The narrator sounds very robotic, so much so that at first, I wondered if this was read by a text-to speech programm. The intonation and even pronunciation is off, even though he sounds like a native American English speaker. He also does not take punctuation into account and reads everything, including titles and questions, as one continuing sentence.
I tried to get past it, but then the author starts listing things - possible causes for PTSD at first. "Maybe you grew up with a neglective or abusive parent. Maybe you lost your house. Maybe your parents weren't faithful to each other. Maybe you were a victim of molestation in your childhood years. Or maybe..." and it just goes on and on and on, with no rhyme or reason. Maybe this approach works in book form, but combined with the narrator, it just didn't. I skipped through the first list (had to press the forward button quite a few times. It is really *long*), but a few minutes after that he starts with a new list, about symptoms of PTSD. Again, the same jumbled approach. I had enough.
So, I can't say anything about the book past the 10 or 12 minute mark, but if you're interested, I'd advise to get the book version (if there is one).
I found this book very beneficial! It helped me clearly understand what PTSD is. I also now understand how detrimental PTSD can be on one's mental health. Great work by the narrator!
