Following his New York Times bestseller From Baghdad, with Love, the Iraq veteran chronicles his readjustment to civilian life with his adopted dog Lava. In his New York Times-bestselling book, From Baghdad, with Love, Lt. Col. Jay Kopelman shared his story of adopting an abandoned puppy named Lava from Iraq. Kopelman and Lava have returned to the States in From Baghdad to America, where Kopelman reflects on the emotional repercussions of war. Kopelman talks about what it's like for soldiers to return to civilian life, often facing difficulties such as depression, suicide, alcohol abuse, and broken relationships. Both Kopelman and Lava had difficulties adjusting to life after war. But with affection and loyalty, Lava and Kopelman were able to help each other adjust. From Baghdad to America is the story of important life lessons a man learns from his dog, and "a bittersweet and hopeful account of the effects of posttraumatic stress disorder" that is "as engaging as it is powerful" (Publishers Weekly).
