Book Review I WIll Not be Broken

I Will Not be Broken by Jerry White is one of the best books that I have ever read. It is inspirational and helpful. The stories of the people highlighted here give us a road map for how to overcome trauma. Jerry White is himself a trauma survivor.

As a college student he stepped on a landmine. The explosive force blew away his leg from just below the knee. Doctors raced to not just save the rest of his leg but Jerry's life. By his side were friends who carried him from the minefield and into healing.

The resulting book is not just simply "Jerry's Story". Indeed, Jerry White has taken pains to interview others who have overcome a variety of traumas. From facing cancer, to losing limbs in landmine accidents to rape victims, anyone who has a trauma to overcome can find solace and direction within the pages of I Will Not Be Broken.
