  • Through Warren’s eyes we observe not only the delicate mechanics of brain surgery but also its lifelong effects on real people and their families, both when the surgery succeeds and when it fails… Thank you, Lee Warren, for letting us see the world through your own unique vantage point.”

  • As a combat brain surgeon, Lee Warren graphically and compassionately exposes the horrors of our hellish war in Iraq.  For him physically and emotionally there was indeed no place to hide, but his eloquence elicits deep respect for him and the others who have been scarred on our behalf.”

  • This book captures simply, eloquently, and passionately what it means to be a physician in time of war. This very personal story captures the essence of what it takes to be a military physician and the challenge for our nation to reintegrate all who deploy to war.”

  • No Place to Hide is an incredibly personal and forthright account of Dr. Warren’s wartime experience and the toll it took on him; finally taking him to a point where he began to question his faith. God provided him the safety to stop pretending he had it all together and trying to survive on his own. He learned to pray more, worry less, and let God do the rest.”
