    1. 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 [...]


    2. GREAT BOOK! A GREAT Thrilling Ride!!! Intelligent writing- (much respect for the author's ability to craft TRUE FACTS and weave them into an exciting FICTION/MYSTERY/DRAMA. ANYONE interested in their 'own' personal HEALTH ---(and who isn't?), or interested in Western medicine vs. Eastern Medicine--ternative preventative care---acupuncturist, benefits of yoga and meditation (stillness), GiGong, rebalancing the elements, energy in the body, etc.d who enjoys reading stories based on TRUE medical F [...]


    3. okay, so here's my problem: i enjoyed the book. but steve's a psychopath. what he did to yoshida & silberman is inexcusable. i suppose i need to think of him as more of a hannibal lecter, so i can get over my sense of moral outrage. :)


    4. This book is extremely fascinating. It deals with the idea that the medical profession, highly respected specialists specifically, feel that they are infoulable. It also deals with ancient Chinese medicine, qigong and the five elements in Chinese culture. It takes place in modern Czech Republic for the most part and is in part a medical story, a mystery and comment on society. While it may confuse some readers who like to skim read books, if you take you time, really read it and ponder what is w [...]


    5. This is one of the most innovative stories that I have come across in a long time. The storyline grabbed me from the very start and I couldn't put it down until I finished. Chris has an amazing ability of tying personal pain and frustration into a fictitious tale, while spreading the word about Eastern Medicine vs. the ever failing, over prescribing Western medical doctors. He truly opened my eyes to the world around me, especially being someone who has been told that my health issues are "psych [...]


    6. Did you like the DaVinci Code? If you did, then I guarantee you'll love this book too. It's truly a unique page-turner that takes you on an exciting journey. I thought it was equally well written and intelligent in its plot. It's a must read for anyone interested in alternative medicine. The fact that it's based upon true events made it even more interesting.


    7. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I bought this book, but I knew I had to read it because I love anything having to do with Chinese medicine. At first I was disappointed it was fiction, but as soon as I started reading it I found myself completely taken in by a well-crafted story. The God Complex is brilliantly inspiring, and it was in no way predictable-full of suspense and completely thought provoking. I appreciate the fact that I learned a few things (okay, a lot) that I didn’t know about [...]


    8. I really enjoyed this story and learned alot from it. I had a health problem myself and was in the hospital for a week, because they did not what was wrong with me. They would come and go and tell me this and that, and I starting feeling like they really didn't care about my well being they were just trying to find a solution so they could get me out of there. Finally they sent a lady in with a paper and concluded that my condition was like Steve's all in my head. So I could really relate with t [...]


    9. As a person who is less than enamored with traditional doctors & Western medicine, I found this to be a very interesting read. Which is amazing, since I never would have picked up a book claiming to be a handbook of Eastern medicine, martial arts, or acupuncture. But elements of all those things were included in this thriller - and I could hardly put it down. This book was both informative AND entertaining. I definitely would read more by this author!


    10. The book was a little 'slow' in places but I loved the storyline. Having worked for doctors most of my adult life, there is absolutely (what I call) the MD, PhD, GOD syndrome. This is especially true when Eastern/alternative medicine is involved. I would have liked a little more 'closure' pertaining to the doctors. I would be interested in reading more books by Chris Titus in the future.


    11. The authorChris Titus is a native of Boston, Massachusetts. Over the past fifteen years, he has held various investment research positions with a focus on the health care sector.  A traveler at heart, Titus has lived in Austria, Greece, and the Czech Republic, where he taught English and built an online social network for Greeks. He is conversant in German and is learning Greek. He currently resides in Boston, Massachusetts. (source: godcomplexnovel/)The synopsisInspired by actual events, The G [...]


    12. This was really like 2 separate books. The first part concerned Paul. He has traveled to Prague after his brothers death there. The death is treated like a suicide, but Paul does not think his brother would have killed himself. He begins an investigation into the death, but he really doesn't get very far. I loved the descriptions of the city and the culture in Prague. It made me want to travel there, to see the same sites as Paul.The next part of the book concerns Steve, and his quest to bring t [...]


    13. "The God Complex" is a novel that revolves around our health care system we have. Doctors nowadays don't take the time out to really see their patients and find out what is the underlying cause of their illness. All they care about is the insurance and copayments they get for each visit (but I know that this isn't true for all doctors out there, just the majority). Steve Benson went to numerous western doctors to find out what health problems he has, but most or all of them turned him around and [...]


    14. 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 [...]


    15. FASCINATING!The God Complex is a mystery/thriller with a great plot, interesting characters, and a fascinating look into traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture, its contrast with Western medicine. Inspired by true events, it really made me think about how I live and treat my own body as well as what knowledge I’m passing along in my own family! The story follows the paths of two brothers. One, Steve, has apparently committed suicide in a foreign country and it is up to his brother, Paul, to [...]


    16. I won this book in a giveaway contest, but I didn't know what exactly I can expected from this book. I just knew part of the book is located in Prague (I'm from Czech republic) and there is Chinese medicine involved (which I found very interesting). So after I start reading this book I was really suprised (in positive way) how well it is written. It starts in Prague, where we meet with Paul Benson, who just found out that his brother probably commited suicide. He starts reading his journals and [...]


    17. This book is not what I expected. I expected a mystery involving a medical modality that acquainted me with Prague. The book did not deliver. The mystery and story were weak. If the author wanted to get his message out about eastern medicine, I think he would have been better off to write it as non-fiction.


    18. Pluses:-gives good opportunity to appreciate the blend of western and chinese medicine.-a nice visit through Prague- understandably angry; however, the anger overshadows the book a bit- a page turner, but not really "DaVinci Code" as billed


    19. This is a great book with an exciting page turning roller coaster ride through. I really liked this book and will hopefully get to read more of Chris Titus. Good job. Definite recommend.



    20. For me, this is really a tale of two books – the first half of the book was engaging and interesting, and had me wondering what was going to happen next. The second half went downhill for me because the storyline was just a bit short of believable and the characters became a bit shallow. Without having a spoiler, I found many (if not most) of the action scenes in the second half of the book weren’t realistic and the last 5% of the book just cuts off and leaves lots of unanswered questions. T [...]


    21. This was another book that I really had trouble putting down. Perhaps because I'm currently struggling with some health issues, I found the information about Eastern Medicine quite intriguing. The premise for this book is that the main character has a history of medical issues, and due to their thankfully near-bottomless depth of financial reserves, is able to explore all that Western Medicine has to offer. When he finds it coming up short, for reasons related to the influence of Insurance compa [...]


    22. I got this free from a Kindle promotion months ago and didn’t get to read it until now. This was quite the strange reading experience. It started out with me thinking on the lines of “Oh, I like this writing style it flows fluidly and draws me in on the first page”. Then, a few pages later the perspective shifted and I began to get bored. Don’t get me wrong. I liked the integration of eastern medicine into the story and that it was deeper than just your normal mystery/thriller. But it di [...]


    23. 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 ch [...]


    24. This isn't a book I would normally read, because the idea of torturing people is too evil and dark to even think about or imagine. Despite that I felt drawn into the questions it poses about healthcare in the US and viewed it more as an analogy instead of as act done by a human to another human. In this case, when healthcare is not managed well in the best interest of the patient it can cause great harm. For example, in the way doctors are so specialized in certain areas of the body that they fa [...]


    25. I enjoyed this interesting foray into the world of modern medicine's failure to cure the many sick of our society, rather choosing to treat symptoms with a plethora of pharmaceuticals. A bit over the top response from the main character when he takes things into his own hands. I would imagine a person having studied Eastern medicine would take a more peaceful or zen approach to self treatment and education. (You'll have to read it to understand what I am talking about.) The ending was strange, a [...]


    26. This was a really interesting book and unlike anything else I've read this year. I was completely engrossed throughout and I was eager to read it every day. Understanding the principles of Eastern medicine really opened me up to alternative forms of treatment because it made so much sense. I loved the way this book taught the reader something as well as had an interesting mystery behind it.Really riveting book. Highly recommended.I received this book through the Librarything Giveaways.


    27. Intelligently put in the format of a thriller, The God Complex is a bookfull of vital information with the power to change one's perspectivetowards Western and Eastern medicine.Apart from a gripping story-line which constantly makes you wonder, what's gonna happen next?, it's the intricate and detailed explanation of the basics of martial arts and Eastern medicine that makes The God Complex a must read.


    28. This book came up when I did a "books set in" search. I wanted a novel set in Prague because of an upcoming trip. I liked itweird but compelling. It's about a man who has had a mysterious illness for 15 years and he is fed up with western doctors who have "the god complex" -- they think they have all the answers.


    29. This is a great explanation of Eastern medicine and how it is undervalued by Western societies. Although this book is a novel, it shows the importance and necessity of integrating Eastern with Western medicine to treat the whole patient. This is a very short book, an easy read, and its information will stay with you forever.
