“This is a profoundly honest book filled with vital lessons about loss, friendship, war -- and the loving bonds that can save us in our lowest moments. We are all lucky that Capt. Montalván and his dog Tuesday found each other, for in their story we see the possibilities in our own lives.”

-- Jeffrey Zaslow, coauthor of the New York Times best-selling book, The Last Lecture


“Luis and Tuesday are two true American heroes. This powerful story is a testament to the courage of veterans both on and off the battlefield. The incredible relationship Luis and Tuesday share is a testament to the power of friendship and service. Far too many veterans face challenges when the invisible wounds of war follow us from the frontlines to our lives back home. Luis is a critical voice for our community, reminding every single veteran that they are not alone. Luis and Tuesday have been instrumental in helping erase the stigma of invisible wounds, and luckily this book is just the beginning of their incredible story.”

-- Paul Rieckhoff, Founder of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA), Author of Chasing Ghosts


“Luis and Tuesday were one of the original sources of inspiration for my very first piece of legislation. Luis' story of military service, his struggles with the visible and invisible wounds of war, and the dog who helped save his life is as compelling on the page as when you hear it in person.”

-- Senator Al Franken

"When Captain Luis Montalvan returned home from his second tour of duty in Iraq, he looked like a poster boy for combat disability: This brave warrior returned with a Purple Heart and two Bronze Stars, but also with a traumatic brain injury, stab wounds, and three broken vertebrae. Even worse than the visible injuries were the wounds inside. Before long, his crippling PTSD fears took him to the very threshold of suicide. Then a most improbable rescuer arrives: Tuesday, the golden retriever who graces this book's cover, moved, tail wagging, into Luis' home as a service animal. His exuberant playfulness and devoted companionship accomplished what cadres of health professionals had not been able to achieve. Montalvan's first person account of how his warm-snouted, four-footed friend saved his life seems to have deeply touched every reader. If this book doesn't make you cry, I don't want to know you."

-- Barnes & Noble
