Healing Inside and Outside
The History of New Innovations in Modern Medicine: The Threat of New Thought to Traditional Medicine - Dr. James D. Okun MD,Evangelita Goodwell

 

More than just the fascinating knowledge about  diseases and treatments such as Alzheimer's, psychosomatics, dialysis, Aesthetic Realism, and the discovery of penicillin, this book will bring you understanding about the opposites sides of life and people. It will help you to embrace the world and consequently to embrace yourself.  Connecting the inner and outside world, finding peace. The peace and serenity of the understanding about how to heal yourself inside and outside. I highly recommend this book to everyone

the book continues to exceed my expectations--it has a marvelous, endearing way about it. so, I'm not ready to blanket Angry Robot books with a well-worn "meh"--and abandon them--just yet. maybe that Christopher Hinz/Paratwa prequel next...?

well who the heck knew!--an Angry Robot publication that may get higher than 3 Stars from me! I mean, I hate to be mean, but I almost didn't buy this when I pondered it at the bookstore, because I thought "do you need another average read from this catalog?...sigh". but I gave in; I bought it, because I figured a Medicine Show scenario would be at least lukewarmly entertaining, no matter what. I like books set at fairs, carnivals, circuses, arcades and amusement parks--and the cover probably cemented it. but, in my private thoughts, I didn't have a lot of hope for this book. BUT. may I recommend this to...dare I suggest this one to...Stephen King fans? maybe don't think at the level of, say, your top 3 Stephen King perfectaganzas, but I tell ya, the characters, the way it unfolds--very patient, but unsettling--always heating up, great villains, my emotions stirred by painful developments, a creeping malevolence forcing characters to learn to be brave--I must say this is much MUCH more engaging than I ever thought it would be.

the beginning of this book has taken me to Oregon in 1878, and that plus all the offbeat characters has got me pretty hooked. I don't think my track record of Ratings for what Angry Robot offers indicates more than a general reaction of "enh, average entertainment"...but this one feels special. there are problems within the ranks of the Medicine Show, and I can't tell how much of a threat these schemes and dissensions are for, well, Oregon, 1878. but with some of my favorite character-types featured here--an Illusionist, AND an alchemist!--it's all good so far.

Dr. Potter's Medicine Show - Eric Scott Fischl

yes, I know--I'm past due for some women authors. and to fix that--soon-I have several queued up. great-looking choices for, oh, around the start of next week! but first, this Fantasy title (SF maybe?), because I absolutely have not read about many medicine shows (none, I think)...certainly I have read a lot less books about medicine shows than I have read books by the ladies. got to try and please everyone, maybe even me.
