I found this book to be beneficial to the military family because it discusses basic marriage and family issues, such as communication and parenting, using examples that military families can relate to. While I didn't agree with some of his opinions or advice, Dr. Hall seems to understand the struggles that military families face. Indeed, his education and experience with the military allows Deployed to have much more depth than many other books that are written for military families.
There's no pink camo or tongue-in-cheek witticisms in Deployed: The Survival Guide for Families at War. However, if you're looking for a no-frills book about being married in the military, this is it.
