Kurzbeschreibung

SYNOPSIS:
Inspired by actual events, The God Complex takes readers on a thrill ride through Chinese medicine. Discover the secrets of the Orient as you embark on a 'factional' adventure pitting Eastern medicine against its critics in the West.  Each clue brings you one step closer to solving the mystery and uncovering an ancient secret that connects Chinese medicine to martial arts.  Setting: Prague (see below)


WARNING: 
This book has nothing to do with religion.  If you are looking for a pleasant story relating to religion, this is NOT your book.  However, you SHOULD buy this book if you are looking for a fast-paced adventure novel in which you'll discover an ancient, hidden connection between Eastern medicine and martial arts.  This book is based upon actual events as experienced by the author over a fifteen year period.  These events have been woven into a fictional story line to engage the reader in a way that makes the concepts more easily digested.  This book contains graphic violence and sexual content.  While this is a 'factional' novel, more of this story is fact than fiction.


WHAT IS A GOD COMPLEX?
A "God Complex" is a psychological term that refers to people who believe they are infallible. It's often used in reference to doctors.  The God Complex is a based upon a real life medical mystery during which the author visited more than 140+ physicians in Boston and Chicago over a fifteen year period.  Many of the encounters he had with the God complex were condensed into two characters. Readers who have been frustrated patients at the hands of incompetent medical staff will likely appreciate this story line to its fullest. 


SETTING:
Set in Prague, The God Complex also serves as a surrogate tour guide, offering readers a unique perspective of the city and its culture. Learn a few Czech words, dishes, and customs.  Downloada free self-guided tour from the book's website and turn your trip to Prague into an adventure. Sip coffee in the same cafe where Paul Benson pieces together his brother's mysterious murder. Or, dine with locals on succulent pig's knee in the shadow of the Prague Castle. Tour includes map with thumbnail images, transportation and chapter references, and useful vocabulary.


KEYWORDS: 
Traditional Chinese medicine, five element theory, martial arts, dim mak, qigong, western medicine, Prague, Czech Republic, Boston, Massachusetts, English as a Second Language (ESL), teaching abroad, travel, history, and culture.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Intriguing take on Western medicine 14. Januar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Evidently inspired by true events, we follow the story of a man whose health steadily deteriorates as a result of poor diagnoses by medical professionals who are too busy to pay attention, too brainwashed to recognize other methods of treatment, and/or too invested in their own delusions of omnipotence to notice they’ve failed. Filled with lots of information about ancient Eastern practices of healing, I found this a highly entertaining/enlightening/thought-provoking read. Although the main character resorts to some pretty drastic means to prove his point, it has a certain appeal to our darker desires to exact revenge and teach a lesson to those who harm us.

I liked the mystery aspect and wished it had played a bigger part. The presentation of the mistakes of Western medicine versus the holistic approach of Eastern medicine became a little long-winded/repetitive at times, but overall a good read. A few minor typos were noted, but not enough to ruin the story.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Mitreissend, interessant und sehr lehrreich!! 9. Februar 2012
Von Nibbie
Format:Kindle Edition
The God Complex - ist unterhaltsam und gleichzeitig erschreckend lehrreich. Der Autor unterrichtet den Leser auf unterhaltsame Weise das Basiswissen der Traditionellen Chinesischen Medizin und gibt Einblick in den Ursprung und dem eigentlichen Sinn der asiatischen Kampfkünste. Es wird die Betriebsblindheit durch Spezialisierung in der westlichen Medizin und die Gewinnorientierung der Pharmakonzerne in Frage gestellt.Die westliche Medizin wird aber nicht verteufelt, sondern eine Kombination der westlichen und der fernöstlichen für die Zukunft als erstrebenswert bezeichnet. Es hat mich schliesslich auch dazu bewegt meine Lebens- und Essgewohnheiten näher unter die Lupe zu nehmen und aktiv an ihnen etwas zu verbessern.The God Complex

5.0 von 5 Sternen Riveting! 23. September 2011
Von Laura S. Kara - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
As an acupuncturist, I found The God Complex to be impeccably researched and giving suspense to a story that would otherwise be difficult for the mainstream reader. As a patient having fallen through the cracks of Western medicine and nearly losing my life, I'm grateful to Chris Titus for having written a book that brings a new view on why taking charge of one's health is so important. I can't wait to recommend this book to my patients. This was a great read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Relevant, a MUST read. 8. Oktober 2011
Von Frank Caruso - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I hope this is the first of many books to come from Chris Titus. He obviously has the unique ability to take a difficult to understand topic and present it as a back drop and plot line to an exciting, twisting adventure novel. This story is a page turner. As a health care provider I witness daily the harsh effects of western medicine on patient moral and their health. This story is poignant to our time as we in the west seek a patient centered health care system, not one controlled by the hospitals, the pharmaceutical and the insurance industries. Herein a western doctor is forced to use his own medicine to cure himself, the results are exciting, relevant and thought provoking. This book is for patients and practitioners alike. Read it!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not a bad read, but a bit long winded at points 3. Januar 2012
Von larrycore - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I enjoyed the mix of east and west medicine, but some of the explanations and diagrams just went on for too long.

The story itself had some nice twists to it, but I felt like some of the plot was left out to make room for the concentration on the eastern medicine portions of the story.

For a first novel I think it was well done. I am hopeful that there are more to come and that, like most authors, he will improve with each book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fast-paced but somewhat chilling novel 21. Januar 2012
Von JudyK - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This was a very exciting read. It was somewhat chilling to witness the ordeal his prisoners went through. Thankfully, also somewhat unbelievable that he wouldn't be discovered. Suspending reality a bit, I actually kind of enjoyed the doctors getting a taste of their own bedside manner. Western medicine could certainly take quite a few lessons from Eastern medicine, especially in viewing the patient as a complete entity and not a broken leg or type 2 diabetic, etc.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A great read! 4. Januar 2012
Von Icequeen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
What would happen if a doctor, who relies on western medicine, was given a chance to be taught traditional Chinese medicine? Would that doctor embrace the chance to learn and expand his knowledge, or would he scoff at the `crack pots' who believe in a more holistic approach? What would you do if someone approached you with a totally different way of treating patients symptoms?

Steve Benson has been plagued by various undiagnosed symptoms for years. He inadvertently finds a practitioner of Chinese medicine who sets him on a path of healing.

With real events woven into an intriguing fictional mystery, The God Complex takes you through a twisting journey of unrelenting symptoms, strange medical encounters, traditional fighting skills and finally peace. The characters are believable, the settings are real and Steve Benson's difficulties finding relief are all too true. If you are interested in alternative medicine, like a page-turner that takes you on an exciting journey, then this book is a must read.
