Craig Faulkner's book unveils many levels of challenges and insights regarding the human predicament called "War." He grew up with a father who survived the Bataan March and was a prisoner of war during WWII. For me, a Hiroshima survivor, his work is a precious gift and an eye opener, letting me see the agony of the tortured on the other side and understand the multigenerational pain of war. His father's path to self-knowledge and ability to find common ground leading to reconciliation truly resonates with that of my own.

-- Hideko Tamura Snider, LCSW,
survivor of 1945 Hiroshima bombing
