My Life And Very Hard Times With Lousy Doctors

Author : Alan Scott

It was Alan Scott's mother who emphasized the notion that doctors were the same as God; one healed the body and the other the mind and soul. Believing that until he got older, he soon came to realize that some in the medical profession were vacant of honesty, sense, warmth, or understanding. This was learned through unnecessary pain, poor diagnosis, poorly mannered doctors and staff members. We are being over-medicated and over-tested. When the public sees ads about medications (especially new ones) that are more negative than positive, why is the FDA passing them through in the first place? You will find many of the problems and complaints in this book as well as what people can do to counteract them.

THERE have been many biographies of hard men, geezers who would maim you as soon as look at you for insulting their dear old mums, but none like this. This is the incredible life story of a man who rose from humble beginnings to become the hardest man in the world. That man is Terrence Shirley Knacker. Given an effeminate middle name to ensure a difficult childhood, Terry fought and blagged his way to the top, conquering adversity and trampling on anyone who got in his way. Ultimately loved by few but respected by many, he has drawn celebrities, sports stars and politicians to him like flies to shit. In the pages of this book, Terry attempts to get his story across, occasionally with all the subtlety of one of his right hooks. Like its subject matter, it is not always a pretty read, but it will grip you by the throat and give you a couple of cheeky slaps for looking at it funny. So don't waste his time, put yer hand in yer pocket and buy it.

People, who found out I write poems, ask me to write them poems, so I was really busy and I was really happy to do that. Some of them were from treatment, jail, and prison. I write poems about relationships, love, and the kids. I am sober now, and when I read my poems again I feel bad about the things I lost when I went to prison. My kids are really happy now. I'm proud of my kids and they are doing well.

My Life and Times: Story of a Kenyan-American by James J. Butt is the unique mixture of an intriguing autobiography about a Kenyan-born man who has lived through many life-altering experiences on what was once known as the 'Dark Continent.' From a young age, he knew his destiny lay in a life in the United States, and he continuously worked very hard, became educated, and struggled with bureaucratic 'red tape' for a opportunity to pursue the 'American Dream.' What makes this work so distinctive is the author's ability to seamlessly combine his own life experiences with those of the world occurring simultaneously. This content is not only a fascinating read from an autobiographical aspect, but his recounting of chronological events gives the reader the chance to take his or her own trip down 'Memory Lane' by recalling what was occurring in his or her life at the time these historical milestones were taking place. This is a means to absorb not only national, but international history in an entertaining way. About the Author Born in the British Colony of Kenya in 1940, the author's family emmigrated from Kashmir, during the British Raj, in the hope of escaping poverty. The son of uneducated parents, he desired to break with family tradition and seek other role models. He believed that education was the key and worked through difficulties to achieve his goals for college degrees, hoping they would lead him to the life he sought. He was able to receive some of his education/work experience in the United States, and experienced the 'Civil Rights Movement' up close, coming to some new realizations. To quote the author: " I truly believe that education is the answer, for people to recognize the differences and, to a greater extent, the similarities that exist among people...regardless of race and color...we should celebrate our differences and learn from them." James J. Butt has been quite successful in the food industry, residing in Hanover, PA.

Dickens’s scathing portrait of Victorian industrial society. Coketown, the depressed mill town that is the setting for one of Charles Dickens’s most powerful and unforgettable novels, is all brick, machinery, and smoke-darkened chimneys. Its emblematic citizen, the schoolmaster Thomas Gradgrind, lives to impose his version of education: facts and statistics that feed the mind while starving the soul and spirit. Inflexible and unyielding, he places conformity above curiosity and logic over sentiment, only to see his philosophy warp and destroy the lives of his own family. Filled with memorable characters and scenes, Hard Times is a daring novel of ideas—and, ultimately, a celebration of love, hope, and imagination. With an Introduction by Frederick Busch and an Afterword by Jane Smiley
