“Glasser's heart-rending account of the terrible injuries being suffered by our soldiers in Iraq is more than just a wake-up call. It's a slap in the face.”
- Robert Armstrong, Minneapolis Star Tribune
“Americans who believe that the human cost of Iraq can be measured primarily by body bags, need to read ‘Wounded: Vietnam to Iraq.”
- Michael Arnold Glueck, New Wounds, Orange County Business Journal
“Wounded is a powerful argument on behalf of the soldiers who survived their wounds to tell their incredible stories...written for those least likely to read it...those who didn't learn the lessons of Vietnam.”
- Steve Thayer, New York Times best selling author of The Weatherman and Silent Snow
“Some books invite our admiration. Some demand that we think. A few force us to conscience. ‘Wounded’ does all three. Superbly.”
- Philip Gold, Author of Take Back the Right and The Coming Draft?
“Ron Glasser is a great American writer. All his books are written out of love: his love for his patients, his love for his profession, his love for the servicemen he treated during Vietnam, and for their sons in Afghanistan and Iraq. His love, as with any doctor, any soldier, and any writer worth anything, is tempered by sadness, which is the attempt at acceptance of the way things are; here in Wounded, also by rage, which is to say by the absolute refusal to accept that suffering and waste which is avoidable. Bravo.”
- David Mamet -Mr. Mamet, a playwright, screenwriter and film director, is the author of "Theatre," recently published in paperback, and coming in June, "The Secret Knowledge" (Penguin).
“Ron Glasser has written a compelling, riveting and truly great book which America needs now. Superbly researched and heart-rending, it is a potential Pulitzer Prize Winner. Well done.”
- Lt. General Hal Moore, Co-author of We Were Soldiers Once…and Young
“Disturbing, moving and very intelligently written. I never knew, and kids my age don’t know, there is such a thing as PTSD and how devastatingly it destroys lives. Every man, woman, boy and girl should know about what is happening to our soldiers in Iraq…”
