For those of us who hate lawyers (and who doesn't?) this book is almost a Bible on dirty tricks and revenge. It also is a stinging indictment of the terrible state of affairs of our nursing homes although it's clear it's not always the nursing homes' fault. You'll find there's enough blame to go around in this hilarious but pitch black comedy that reflects the current state of inherent animosity amongst almost all sectors of society against and within our most esteemed professions. There's never been a better description of the desperate struggle between the greed of lawyers and the revenge of doctors told more graphically. Even when you're laughing, you still have your feet picked up off the floor as you never know what's lurking below. The only time you'll lower this book is to swat whatever's poking at you. If you don't agree, sue me!

About the author (2007)

The author, who uses a pen name of Glenn Allen to try to keep one step ahead of the lawyers pursuing him, has been practicing medicine since 1979. During that time he's had ample opportunity to sample the best and worst of society and puts down in words what many in his profession feel but have never gotten around to doing. He's an avid tennis player, pilot, licensed boat captain, scuba diver and award winning poet. When the lawyers finally drive him from medicine, he plans to offer a fly/boat/dive package to the Florida Keys where he's been living incognito for years. He has two more books in the works that hopefully will be ready for publishing in 2008. Stay tuned. You can email him at Compliments and suggestions will be appreciated. Hate mail will be used in his next book.
