I literally could not stop reading this book.  I have never been to war, but gained a greater appreciation of a different aspect of war.  Dr. W. Lee Warren has written an amazing book, with an equally revealing title, No Place to Hide: A Brain Surgeon's Long Journey Home from the Iraq War.

The book focuses on Dr. Warren’s time in Iraq as a neurosurgeon.  He writes with a vulnerability and power about his experiences and his emotions and thoughts about the various trials he experienced.  He also speaks openly about his marriage which would ultimately end in divorce, his feelings about his children and what it meant to serve his country.

Dr. Warren openly discusses through personal stories the struggles he had sleeping and the toll the war took on his entire being; spiritual, emotional, physical and mental.  The book is about good and evil, hope and victory juxtaposed with despair and loss.

The title says it all, there was no place to hide during his time in Iraq.  You don’t want to miss this book.  It’s riveting!  If I could, I would give this 10 out of 5 stars!

I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their Blogger Review Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
