Possibly the worst book ever? Mar 24, 2007
First, before I am bashed as a "liberal," a term used liberally in this book, I must say I believe in God and many of the premises in this book. However, it is hard for me to believe a physician wrote this book, much less a graduate of Temple University Medical School. From the opening page, I was amazed at the multitude of spelling errors, gramatical errors, and apparent lack of even rudimentary editing. Even the back cover has blatant gramatical faults.
The text is rambling and the "medical" portions are embarassingingly poor. The charts are copied out of texts with no apparent relevance to the topic, other than to impress with complexity. As a physician I was embarassed for the author.
In the final chapters we get to the "meat" of the matter, a rambling religious pseudo-sermon, which, although likely sincere in spirit, loses any power due to the impression it is written by someone with poor command of the English language. The author's name leads me to believe otherwise, but if English is a second language for her, this might explain alot. If not, she needs much better editing help.
The bottom line, I believe, is that spirituality and prayer can indeed play a large part in medical success, but to rely on it exclusively, with little medical reasoning or understanding of medical systems, may be pretty assuming on the author's part. This book is a personal sermon thinly disguised as a "physician's revelation of miracles she has seen."
I suffered through this text as best I could, but I would not recommend it to anyone....save your money!!!
