As a lecturer, I can say that this book is really worth it. At the end of the day, it is not only about memorizing and cramming, but also about expanding your general knowledge and broadening your horizons, i.e. thinking outside the box and acquiring some critical thinking skills, if not common sense, in a way. The best scenario will be if you have some other books, perhaps from other publishers as well, to back up and boost your preparation; especially in the area of essay writing and vocabulary building and practice. Finally, please bear in mind how you are going to present yourselves before the assessors of the ETS board. That would be really useful in your later/professional life, as you may guess.
I purchased the book "The One-Minute Cure" after 2 doctor visits and one trip to the ER for swelling and "loginess" in my neck. My thyroid was tested twice and came back "normal." The trip to the ER was after taking a vitamin at bedtime that stuck in my throat causing it to close so much my voice was squeaking. I was also experiencing difficulty breathing properly and felt short winded most of the time. There were numerous other symptoms as well. I decided to put all my symptoms into Google, and I did, and many, many websites came up with the same diagnosis: systemic yeast infection.
I purchased four different probiotics to be sure I covered as many strains of live cultures as possible. It has been quite costly and I have been taking the probiotics since the trip to the ER in November, 2011, with little or no relief. The beginning of this month, July 2012, I again began looking online for cures for systemic yeast infection. There were many cures listed online but it sounded like people were "suffering" through those cures without much relief. I was drawn to the book, "The One-Minute Cure" by Madison Cavanaugh and purchased it. I also purchased 35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide. Today, was my 14th day (16 drops of H2O2 in 6 oz. distilled water 3x daily). So far, my progress has been: 1)swelling in neck: GONE. 2)tightness in chest (I think from infection in sinuses draining into chest while I was asleep): GONE. 3)Insomnia (From worrying about my throat closing while asleep): GONE. My sinuses are still draining and I put the H2O2 and distilled water in my Netty Pot and rinse my sinuses before going to bed. I am experiencing a great deal of energy and I feel very clear-headed. I am able to exercise again and have stopped the probiotics and resumed a regular healthy diet (of course, abstaining from milk, sugars, and anything with yeast).
The book is well written with easy directions for diluting the 35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide with distilled water -- and the number of drops to mix well into 6 to 8 oz. of distilled water on days 1 thru 23 and then days 23 back down to day 1 to the "maintenance dose" of 3 drops H2O2 in the 6 to 8 oz. of distilled water 3x daily -- p. 74 in the book. I highly recommend this book and this wonderfully easy and inexpensive cure. I have not felt this good in a very, very, long time. IT WORKS!!!
Thank You for Your Service was named one of the Best Nonfiction Books of the Year by Publishers Weekly and one of the Top 10 Books of the Year by the Washington Post…and I wholeheartedly agree. I won’t say it’s the best nonfiction book I’ve read this year (only because it doesn’t beat The Boys in the Boat, which is my favorite nonfiction of 2013 so far), but it definitely claims the number two slot.
This is a heartbreaking and moving series of stories about various members of the 2-16 Infantry Battalion and their families dealing with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) following war zone deployments. These men, even though they came home without a physical scratch, gave their lives as they and their families knew them to our country. The soldiers experience crippling anxiety and migraines, violent tendencies, depression, and memory loss. These effects cause immense pain and hardship for the soldiers’ families, as they see their father/husband/brother turn into a completely different human being…and, in many cases, a monster…and the wives are generally left trying to hold the family together. One soldier’s wife said of her husband’s months long stay in a mental rehab center, “I’m pissed. […] He gets to go fishing. He gets to go out on weekends. […] I’m always here, taking care of everything. This is not why I got married and had kids, to do this on my own. I’d like to stay in a hospital for a couple of weeks. And sleep.”.
TBI (“the signature wound of war”, according to the military) is particularly relevant right now, as it is the same injury that football players have been suffering from and has been covered extensively in the media. While the football players’ TBI is caused by repeated flows to the head, the soldiers’ is caused by close proximity to repeated explosions.
Finkel’s writing style is powerful and made the soldiers’ situations seem very stark and real. He quickly switched back and forth between discussion of heavy feelings and emotions and mundane details of life. It reminded me of the sequence in the pilot episode of “Friday Night Lights” (the TV show) when the director cuts back and forth between scenes of Jason Street’s spinal surgery and the football game going on simultaneously. Finkel also included macabre things the soldiers do to make light of their situations, but are probably horrifying to anyone else. For example, one of the soldiers used his bullet hole ridden war helmet as his Halloween candy bowl, no doubt terrifying Trick or Treaters.
Though Thank You for Your Service is incredibly sad, I was completely engrossed and had trouble putting it down. It’s a totally unique look at the effects of war and would be a great gift for the holidays.

If you are a typical American "church-christian" this is a must read that will help you see how far from what Jesus has in mind for His followers the American church has drifted. It is a truly stark revelation with much clear guidance for coming into the life He has in mind for all of us...
