Publisher's Summary

From the war on the ground to the war within.

In August, 2013, Special Forces Green Beret Andrew Marr returns home from another deployment a quietly broken man. Enduring the last of many traumatic brain injuries, Marr works as a breacher for his Special Forces team and finds himself in close proximity to a number of explosive blasts.

During Tales from the Blast Factory, Marr's "silent wound" begins to manifest in radical physical and behavioral changes that derail him, resulting in a desperate search for help. Marr called upon the initiative and determination that had served him as a warrior - and eventually triumphed with the help of an innovative doctor. As thousands of veterans, athletes, accident victims, and other TBI sufferers wallow in the wake of inadequate treatment - and in many tragic cases, turn to suicide - this book offers new hope and explains the science behind this very specific kind of healing and why conventional protocols fail.

Critic Reviews

"Takes us from the battlefields of Afghanistan to Andrew's unrelenting battle to be whole again...a raw reminder that even in a brain injured state, the mind can clearly triumph." (Joe Rogan)
