Booktalk: Jason Kander’s “Invisible Storm. A Soldier’s Memoir of Politics and PTSD”

With INVISIBLE STORM, Jason Kander has written the book he himself needed in his darkest moments of PTSD.

After Afghanistan, his day job was politics as a rising star in the Democratic party, first in his native Missouri and then running for national office. But that stopped when symptoms became too great.

It’s the best book I’ve read about PTSD—what it is, what it feels like, what to do about it, how it affects families (through the words of his wife Diana), and how it interplays with a life of politics.

Today, Jason Kander works with national veteran groups and hosts a podcast.
