'Wow, what a book! I think I was crying on page 3. The collision of man and dog, and the unbreakable bond they form, made my heart leap. Everyone should read this book to better understand not only the ravages of war, but the amazing capacity of the human spirit to rebound. I dare anyone to read this book and not believe in the power of love to heal.' (Lee Woodruff, author of In an Instant (with Bob Woodruff) and Perfectly Imperfect)
'A deeply moving story of service, sacrifice, and restoration. Years from now when critics assemble the canon of Iraq War literature, look for Until Tuesday to make everyone's short list.' (Andrew J. Bacevich, author of Washington Rules: America's Path to Permanent War)
'This story of an incredible service dog is both touching and warm. Some of the struggles are painful to read, because they are so real, but that only makes the triumphs more uplifting. In the course of these pages, Tuesday truly becomes a hero, as does Luis Montalván. This book feels like more than a joy; it feels necessary.' (Vicki Myron, #1 NYT bestselling author of Dewey)
'Until Tuesday explores the unique bond that can occur between dogs and people that ennobles both. This book is a moving tribute to the courage and perseverance of a man as well as the love and the devotion of a remarkable and unforgettable dog.' (Larry Levin, New York Times bestselling author of Oogy: The Dog Only a Family Could Love)
'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 bestseller, 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 to 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 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) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

All in all, this book is a "must-read", and I, for one, wish Luis and Tuesday many more years together. What a team!
Luis carlos Montalvan, a soldier fought for his contry like so many others US soldiers, but what he thought to be, a freindly visit to the same village him and his men had visit so many times, litle did he know that this visit would turn badly out for him, and was to follow him till the present day.
He was stapped in his back, in the tent, he had visited so many times, but he hadent noticed the man behind him, so home he went, with a traumatic experience, and therefore always had a knife on him, who could he trust, he had to fight for his life, Psycedelic, he was wounded, he could not go down stairs, not beeing around much people, walked the night, stayed in his apartment for months.
he was one of many, and in a new repport from CRS, Congressional Research Service came today it stated that:
in the two wars that USA have been in Afghanistan and Irak, the soldiers have paid the price: In all 6.640 soldiers have lost there lifes. More than 50.450 soldiers were wounded. about 1/4 Million soldiers have got traumatics damage either to there psykic, or head damage, that can be a lot of things, but Luis was one of these. 1.715 soldiers have had lost a leg or a arm or other bodyparts removed.
Now life went on till the day he found out he neded a service dog, And here come Tuesday a Golden Retriever, that also had some bad experience with people, but after some long periods and training those two find each other, and they still live together, Tuesday is on Luis side and they sleep together, the are truth soulmates.
Also Luis were fighting for his and all other US soldiers right to be heard, og there experiences in the wars, to get there human rights, and it pay of, after many many years.
So Read this book, its a book that cut deep into ones live, I have read a lot of very very god books about service dogs and how they help people with illness, and sometimes illness we cannot se. And that is very bad, because if you can se: oh the person havent got a arm or leg or something you can se, then they are sick, but those people were you cannot se this things, then they are not sick, they are are like the others.
So please read this fantastic, amazing, and tender book about Luis and Tuesday, and there fight to have a normal life, so normal as it can be
