Eaten By The Tiger by Emile Allen, is a very unusual book. It tells a doctor's story of his catastrophic injury from both sides of the couch, as a doctor and a patient. Dr. Allen writes clearly and frankly, and does not hold back on his most intimate emotions. He describes the terrible accident, his virtual collapse, and the long road back to a better and more meaningful life in a manner that holds the reader's interest from beginning to end. The book is recommended to everybody who has met horrendous circumstances in life (isn't that just about everyone?) and would like help in finding his or her road to recovery and a better life. --Alma H. Bond, Ph.D. Author of Jackie O: On the Couch and 20 other books
There are some books that move you to tears and some that can help you conquer your fears. In offering us his own story of turmoil and triumphs over life's challenges, Dr. Emile Allen shows us why God spared his life--so he could write Eaten By The Tiger. --Steve Alten New York Times best-selling author
What an amazing book. It is rare to have a doctor get back in touch with his sensitive side and find that there is more to life than work and status. The spirit and bravery of Dr. Allen are astonishing. Eaten By The Tiger fuels the minds of the reader to reflect on their own life, have gratitude, and let go of disempowering beliefs. --Ninon de Vere De Rosa President of NinonSpeaks
