Reviews

"A captivating personal journey . . . Tom Voss writes with compelling immediacy."
-- Brian E. Kinsella, cofounder and chairman of Stop Soldier Suicide

"The gripping tale of Tom Voss's fight, in and out of the warzone . . . will inspire countless others, leaving them with a sense of purpose and hope."
-- David Shulkin, MD, ninth secretary of the US Department of Veterans Affairs

"The authors tell Voss' story in clear, conversational prose, as if Voss were casually speaking across a dinner table. . . . An engaging mix of war story, travelogue, and motivational memoir, presenting the trials of a man with roiling emotions but no clear method of releasing them. As the journey goes on, his book becomes an unlikely look at the pain of everyday people in contemporary America, and particularly that of forgotten soldiers of forgotten wars. An offbeat and inspiring tale."
-- Kirkus Reviews

"Tom Voss attacks the truth in his story with a furious intensity, and there's an inherent beauty that it creates. I simply couldn't stop reading. . . . Tom is one of the most important spokesmen of our generation."
-- John Pinter, executive director of Team Red, White & Blue

"Well written, engaging, and thought provoking, Where War Ends is recommended for anyone who cares about veterans and would like to better understand their journey back from war."
-- Holly Arrow, professor of psychology, Groups & War Lab, University of Oregon

"At once thoughtful and uplifting, Tom Voss's story gives us insight into the challenges our returning soldiers face as they transition back into a society. Though immense, Tom's challenges are not atypical among those seeking to heal the moral injuries of war. By recounting his healing journey, Tom paints a vivid and hopeful picture of what is possible for those burdened by the scars of war and provides a road map to that healing place."
-- Mike Haynie, PhD, Vice Chancellor for Strategic Initiatives and Innovation, Barnes Professor of Entrepreneurship, and executive director of the Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF), Syracuse University

"Take a deep breath . . . and read this book."
-- Midwest Book Review
