Having been a cop myself for almost 18 years along with being injured five times in five years, being diagnosed with PTSD, and also having to take a medical retirement-Ken hits the highlights of being a cop.
Few people know what it's like to go to work and some days have life or death situations happen several times in a day. Ken's book tells of the fight AFTER the fact of "mind against body."
A reader from Michigan
After doing booksignings myself (ONE STANDS ALONE)in several states this summer, I've had to mention Ken's book several times. It is a true "been there, done that." Thank the Good Lord he made it out okay and is bringing PTSD among cops to the public eye! I'll definatly give it five stars!

I never realized policemen were human until I read this book! I found the book very interesting and read it in two days. I have a new respect for policemen - it can't be easy!
A note to Ken and others - I am not a policeman but I did have PTSD about a memory that was tormenting me. I have had major success in dealing with it through my excellent therapist and the use of a technique called EMDR (I think it stands for Eye Movement Desensitize Reprogram). This technique has been incredibly successful for me.

My applause to Ken Rogers for articulating his lived experience of post traumatic stress disorder. As a mental health practitioner familiar with treating children and adults who have suffered trauma, I join Ken in his hopefulness that spreading the message, "you are not alone," to our public servants will support them in their struggle to reclaim their lives and heal from the hurt of PTSD.

PTSD and Police Officers, April 22, 2011
Outstanding accounts of Ken's life as a police officer. The content is well organized and readable. From the moment I picked the book up, I had a really hard time putting it down. I read the entire book in less than two days. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is a real problem that has been hidden from the public for years and has just recently been attributed to police and emergency service work. The general public's perception of a police officer is one who is stone faced and feels no emotion, but Ken makes you realize through his personal accounts, that police officers are human as well. Great Job.
