"In this riveting memoir, combat veteran Brian Castner describes what it's like to be "Crazy" - his term for the symptoms of blast-induced Traumatic Brain Injury. With clear, vivid, evocative language, he interweaves compelling accounts of his day-to-day experiences as a bomb disposal specialist in Iraq and Afghanistan with his suburban life back home with his family, alternating tension and release in a way that keeps you turning the pages. Castner seeks diagnosis and treatment for the "Crazy," but finds no miraculous cure."
