I believe things happen for a reason and I believe meeting Adam Medaglia was one of these moments. I met Adam as I was about to have surgery. Adam explained the work he does coaching men to live with more balance, success, and wellbeing, and that he had written a book on his struggles and asked if I would read the manuscript and provide him with my thoughts.
As I read the book I immediately resonated with his message. As a retired athlete, and now A-league coach, as well as raising a young family, I struggle at times to switch off and I feel I can’t find the balance of family and work, and this is something I battle with on a weekly basis. Adam’s methods and coaching he describes in the book are invaluable and will help all men who have the same struggles and are juggling personal and professional responsibilities.
‘WARRIOR: How I Defeated PTSD’ is fantastic and the system he created (The Ollin System) to help himself will help many others in their search for help. The content, the models, and the structure of the book can be easily followed.
The fact that he has put this all together off the back of his own struggles is a testament to who he is and that he can now help others who may not have the ability to go see a psychologist or seek help.
Professional athletes who have retired or about to retire will also benefit from reading Adam’s book by incorporating his methods and coaching. Adam is big on living a life of personal accountability supported by discipline, structure, and purpose, something that all professional athletes thrive on. But once they retire and leave their professional sports they are left to their own devices, often struggling to adjust to a very different world than that they were used to as professional athletes. Adam’s book and his philosophy will undoubtedly help athletes as they transition out of professional sport.
Adam, you should be very proud of the book and I have no doubt it will be a success. Congrats mate.

When I was sent the book I put it down on my desk and just looked at it—it stayed there for a day or 2 and then I just launched in—I could not put it down. It is real, it is honest, it is educational but why I recommend it so highly—it’s Authentic.

The work Adam is doing within the Men’s Mental health sector is crucial, perhaps even more so during these uncertain times. Largely as a result of his struggles with PTSD, Adam’s story and message is bringing more awareness to men’s mental health, as well as showing a path forward which will benefit many.
The Ollin System is insightful and practical, and will be of huge benefit to anyone willing to start taking ownership of their own lives by learning not to fear the black dog we all have inside of us. You can change, and it is remiss of you not to if it is affecting those around you. Hiding and running away from the pain will do no one any good. With this book and the Ollin System, Adam’s story, message and coaching will guide and support you in a way that he understands because he has been through the battle. You and your family have nothing to lose.

I am often in awe of the people I meet in my work. Especially those brave enough to explore their most vulnerable moments on the path to making better ones. Adam Medaglia is one of those people. On the one hand, he is a dream client for a psychologist because he is highly functional and dedicated to achieving his goals. On the other hand, Adam is an imposing figure because he brings to therapy extensive knowledge gained from years of exploring professional coaching, psychological principles, and self-help.
He has poured both his dedication and his experience into this program, which describes the methods he used to keep himself functional despite substantial trauma. As Adam himself indicates, there is no substitute for professional assistance when required. But as far as mental health maintenance and self-help is concerned, Adam’s program is well worth exploring, and I have no doubt it would benefit many. Keep with you the parts that resonate.

Although I am female, I come from a male dominated history and could identify with ALL of this.
The book is easy to read and confronting and I had to take time to consider things. It helped me realise that my PTSD might be manifesting in more ways than I had considered. It also helped me realise that I want things in my life and that I exist.
There are loads of practical tools in the book to help you realise your worth, and as you execute some of the lists it has the added benefit of helping you realise you can have positive value for others and gives you back self-worth.
WARRIOR: How I Defeated PTSD will change lives for the better!
