Editorial Reviews

Review

"The intrigue that follows and the information revealed leave the reader gripped in a story that crosses continents, and mixes Eastern and Western medical practices.  "The God Complex" is fascinating and makes the reader question if everything we've been told by the medical community is truly accurate ..." -- RebeccasReads.com

I found it engaging and very well written.

The book also includes a message for Western medicine to open their minds to other approaches.

A few minor typos were noted, but not enough to ruin the story.

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!

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.

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.

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.

This was a very well-written, informative and uplifting book. For all those people who have been bounced around the medical world from one specialist to another, who've been told that their illness "must be in their head" or been told that there's nothing else that can be done, this book provides hope in alternatives to Western medicine. The author takes you on a journey of a young man with a mysterious and complicated illness, one that interferes with work, relationships and everything else about daily life. The young man never gives up in his quest for a cure, or at the very least, something that will help him live a more normal life. The book also includes a message for Western medicine to open their minds to other approaches. Overall, you'll enjoy this book and the journey it takes you on.

Format: Paperback
I am so glad that Chris sent me an invitational link to share his great work. The book arrived on my doorstep just as Hurricane Irene did as well. After signing for it, thanking the drenched driver of the postal truck, I ducked inside and lit an extra candle and began to read. I'll have to admit it was difficult to put down and the blasting wind with rain only added to my exclusion of the outside world. As a practicing acupuncuturist, specializing in nutrition, these references in the book held additional focus. My only contention that I brought up with Chris, was the dard side of his character in the delivery care(?). Of course, Chris reminds me that we all have that dark side, and can be intrigued by it all the while. My suggestion to readers, don't wait for a hurricane to block out the wildness of life before reading this one. It is well worth the time!

This was a great book. It was written well with a wonderful plot. I enjoyed every minute of it. I have been an acupuncturist for over 12 years, and would recommend this book to anyone - not just my fellow acupuncturists.
