    THE HIPPOCRATIC OATH: Primum Nil Nocere - First Do No HarmTo the extent that one could consider a book of near death experiences, grave illnesses, and medical mishaps interesting, this memoir surpasses all expectations. In addition to being extremely well-written, it is also a "How To" of medical self-advocacy. In this respect, it is a comprehensive guide for those readers who need to be hospitalized and for those seeking a new healthcare provider.Through pain, weakness, accidents, injury, and d [...]

    Temple Emmet Williams’ “Warrior Patient” is a book everyone should read because it is a book about the tenacity and strength of the human spirit. This is a story about a man, an ex-Marine no less, who is suddenly faced with the one thing none of us want to hear: a diagnosis of cancer. He doesn’t cave in to fear or hopelessness. (I wasn’t surprised – I mean here was a Marine!) What did surprise me was the form his fight took. Rather than submit to what most of us would do, submit to a [...]

    It breaks my heart as a nurse to read of the struggles that Tempest had to endure to provide us with such a poignantly detailed account of what should have been a common, routine procedure snowballing into a potentially life threatening disaster of medical mishaps, mistakes, and pure ineptness of medical society as it exists today. However, throughout his ordeal he prevails and becomes a true warrior with a mission to ensure others have the knowledge and "Warrior Patient Rules" on hand to tackle [...]

    A subject I genuinely never thought I would enjoy reading about - the story of a man's journey through the treatment of his prostate cancer and his ensuing medical issues. Mr. Williams managed to make an unpleasant subject very humorous and entertaining. I found myself giggling madly (while also somehow cringing) at many points in the book - and that was certainly not something I would have expected upon purchasing it! After reading some of the horrible health experiences that Mr. Williams has s [...]

    The story of journalist-businessman Temple Williams's three-year journey navigating the treacherous waters of the modern medical system.A cancer diagnosis is scary enough. What most of us don't expect is that our lives will be more endangered by the people and methods employed to cure us than by the disease itself. This is exactly what Temple Williams experiences when his prostate cancer leads to a three-year-long comedy of errors that includes massive infection, kidney failure, partial blindnes [...]

    Temple Emmet Williams' "Warrior Patient" engrossed me totally from the first page. Here is a man in very good health who exercises daily and eats right, an ex-Marine with a wife he loves dearly - faced with a diagnosis of cancer. Like anyone would be, he was rocked back on his heels in disbelief. But instead of giving in to fear or immediately submitting to the "normal" procedures to take care of it, he decides to fight and research his options.What follows is a hair raising (seriously, I had go [...]

    This book may have saved my life! Sure, maybe you assume that I'm speaking colloquialism, exaggerating, or WHATEVER -- but, it's true. I may not be typing this review right now, may not BE at all, if I had not been gifted this book. I read the eBook version of Warrior Patient at a time when I needed it the most. I was depressed to the max. I'd just retired from my job after fifty-two long years. I'd dreamed of writing and promoting my fiction every day of each of those years, if I could only fin [...]

    This Book May Save Your LifeWhat an eye-opener! Warrior patient was a huge wake-up call for me as it should be for anyone, like me, asleep at the wheel on the road to personal medical care. If you have any health woes whatsoever or a loved one that does, RUN- DO NOT WALK- to get this book. While “must read” is generally overused, it genuinely applies to Warrior Patient. I have great admiration for the author/patient, Temple, for boldly airing his dirty laundry/aka health issues- the good, th [...]

    Warrior Patient: How to Beat Deadly Diseases With Laughter, Good Doctors, Love, and Guts, by Temple Emmet Williams, is a memoirist's roadmap through the horrors and hilarity of fatal illnesses and modern medicine. His story brings to mind Shakespeare's observation: “What a piece of work is man,” and I mean that in every possible way. Using a second-person voice – the second person being you, literally – Williams draws you in, so that what is happening to him is somehow happening to you, [...]

    I found this book to be very interesting and informative whether you are facing illness, disease or are perfectly healthy it is a book that can be useful to almost everyone. A man facing prostrate cancer opts for surgery to remove it and what happened to him was pretty horrible but contains lessons for us all and in his cleverly humorous book he shares those with us. His experience is in Florida, a state full of elderly people and an abundance of doctors ready to make $$$ of their many medial is [...]

    “No one can make you do anything,” the psychiatrist Viktor Frankl said, “You always have a choice.” Temple Williams’ book is about exercising that choice in the medical-industrial complex that today’s health system has become. The doctor-patient relationship generally involves a shift of power from the patient, who is acted upon, to the health care professional, who acts. But what happens if the health care professional is not well-informed, or careless, or in any of a thousand human [...]

    I believe that "Warrior Patient" by Temple Emmett Williams is an important book for people facing illness, ie, EVERYONE, should read. Temple recounts his experience with a succession of bad encounters with the healthcare system with each encounter leading to a new illness. For 32 years I worked in acute and critical care as well as experienced chronic illness myself. I assure you that these scenarios are to be believed. Seventeen principles for "warrior patients" are presented. Each shows how pa [...]

    Warrior Patient details the medical journey of Temple Emmet Williams, from a fall on a tennis court to near-death experiences. It is told with dignity and grace and humor. Williams has a way of writing that draws the reader in. Once I started on the book, I didn't want to put it down. I found myself cheering him on and grinned every time the sarcasm/humor popped on the page. I sympathized with him because I know too well how much a doctor's lack of care and compassion can wreak havoc on someone' [...]

    The author uses humor to address a real life struggle that almost kills him. His experience with the medical system and doctors is all too accurate. Love the story. I could relate as I work in the medical field and see these kinds of things every day.

    We are proud to announce that WARRIOR PATIENT by Temple Emmet Williams is a B.R.A.G.Medallion Honoree. This tells a reader that this book is well worth their time and money!

    I have brought this book up many times. Well written, yes, but an important read. You have to be an advocate for yourself and others around you. Read it!!!

    "Warrior Patient Rule No. 1: Choose to live. Take personal responsibility for getting better. It is not your doctor's job. It is not God's job. It is your job. God and your doctors might help. And they might not."This is the first rule Temple Williams gives in his often humorous, and even more often enraging, story of his three-year odyssey through the wilderness of serious illness and medical (in)competence. Diagnosed with prostate cancer while in his late 60s, Williams describes how a comedy o [...]

    I so appreciate the author's process of taking charge of his own health. Its not easy to face such serious health issues, especially when the outlook given is less than positive. Temple is an awesome example of how a person can change their own health with a change in attitude and a change in way of life. Thank you for sharing your story. (I finished this book several months ago, but I'm still impacted by the example he gave in writing his own "prescription" for good health.)

    Warrior Patient is a compelling read and comprehensive story of a journey through one medical issue after another. A warrior patient learns to research and to ask questions, to never give up, to inject humor where there might be tears. Fortunately, it has a happy ending.Listen to your body. Sometimes that works well only when it’s already too late. This story proves that a tenacious positive mindset is critical to healing and health and that advocating for yourself with the medical professiona [...]
