THE SHININESS HAD LONG GIVEN WAY TO A DEEP TARNISH...

"I joined the Victoria Police Force in early 1976 as a young, bright but very na¯ve and immature eighteen-year-old - like a shiny new penny, if you will," Bob Marmion explains. "By the time I was discharged as medically unfit fifteen years later, I was a very battered and scarred penny. I had been exposed to multiple traumatic experiences that led to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), a breakdown in my marriage and my drug and alcohol addiction mixed with suicidal thoughts..."


The Price We Pay is an autobiographical account of his time in the police force and his subsequent battle with PTSD which was caused by exposure to multiple traumas in the job.


"A book of truth by the truth Sayer who walked the walk in a role we all take for granted and hold little real understanding of...this brave and open book will move your perspective and gain you insight into what real survival of spirit is...a wonderful book by a notable man of heart..." Dean, Indiebook reviewer
