"Sebastian Junger has turned the multifaceted problem of returning veterans on its head. It's not so much about what's wrong with the veterans, but what's wrong with us. If we made the changes suggested in TRIBE, all of us would be happier and healthier. Please read this book."
- Kar Marlantes, Bestselling author of MATTERHORN
