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.
