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.

Por Laura S. Kara - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda
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.

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 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Not a bad read, but a bit long winded at points 3 de enero de 2012

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.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Someone punched a dumb doctor in the nose for me! 21 de julio de 2011

First, and most important, this is a great "read." It's well written, and holds your interest with plenty of action.

As someone who once considered becoming a doctor, this thriller, set against a background of western medicine, I found to be very exciting and engaging. The fact that I learned a great deal about Eastern medicine was a bonus.

CUT TO THE CHASE: God Complex fulfilled a secret desire of mine - and I'll bet a boatload of others who don't consider themselves violent people, but are very frustrated sometimes by the dismissive attitudes of many doctors. My desire is to punch all the dumb doctors (I've ever gone to) in the nose. Of course, Steve Benson (the hero)does so much more... Obviously, what Steve does is illegal (and albeit fictional), but it sure made me feel good just reading about it! The character of Steve Benson is well portrayed as someone who just wants to know what the heck is wrong with him. If there is no cure, fine; he'll somehow manage it. But Steve's character elicits a great deal of empathy because we've all been there at one time or another.

I recommend God Complex if you've ever wanted to get back at the pharmaceutical or insurance companies; if you've ever been interested in medicine, or if you've ever felt that most of the doctors you have been treated by are on "auto pilot". Like I said, it's a good read!

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.
