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.

    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 absolutely devoured this book! I found it engaging and very well written. The reason I am giving this book 5 stars is because not only was the story engaging, but it was fast paced and I could identify with one of the main characters, Steve. Like him, I was upset with Western Medicine and how I felt and sometimes do still feel dismissed. It was in Eastern medicine combined with Western medicine that I found many of my issues able to be controlled. One of the main things in the book when Steve does something to his doctors that many may find reprehensible is to get them to both realize that one needs to “marry both types of medicine together”. I could not agree more.

    The only thing I found about this book that bugged me was at the end when the author describes Steve and Paul’s childhood adventures in a specific location. I thought this information could have been scattered throughout the book but it was not enough for me to drop a star of my rating. The ending chapter was a nice ending and a surprise ending at the best. I did not see it coming and honestly, many readers may not see it coming.

    This book is staying on my Kindle to be read again if I meet my challenge goals before the end of 2012. I do recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Eastern medicine and a great story about the search for truth.

    The God Complex combines the intensity of a Clancy novel with the information of a Chinese medicine primer. Of course, the protagonist goes beyond the goodness of Chinese medicine but it’s only to prove a point. I hope to read more from Chris Titus. Highly recommended.
