CLUB MEDicine Paperback – April 3, 2015

by Jack Kinsley (Author)

4.5 out of 5 stars 22 customer reviews

What drives a reasonable man to commit murder? Travis Martin was the great American success story. A former addict who started the premiere private rehab in the hills of Malibu, California, he had it all: a thriving business, a beautiful wife, and a daughter who was the center of his universe. Unfortunately, when his recovery took a nosedive, everything he built went right along with it. Now, he has a rehab filled with eccentric clients he’s expected to keep sane, a dark secret he’s desperate to keep hidden, and forces from his past that are determined to strip him of anything that remains. What’s a self-made man to do? Backed into a corner, Travis finds himself stuck on one moral question: Can he commit murder in order to keep it all from slipping away? How far down the rabbit hole will he go? And, perhaps more importantly, how does he come back from it after that life is gone? Part thriller, part redemption tale, CLUB MEDicine explores the heart of darkness within us all as one man balances on the razor’s edge between self-actualization and self-destruction.

If this is the first novel written by Kinsley, we are in for a great „ride“! This story made me laugh, made me cry & made me „run for cover“ when the story took a macabre twist. Wonderful characters that would make for a great movie. More Kinsley, more! Can’t wait for the next one!

Filled with sharp dialogue and a touch of wicked humor, Kinsley draws you into a storyline that demands your attention and then slaps you with a surprising plot twist. Paired with a well-developed cast of flawed yet intriguing characters, this novel has all the elements of a top notch thriller. Looking forward to what Kinsley has in store for us next.

4.0 out of 5 starsA rehab novel with a twist and lot of heart-pounding suspense

By B. Case TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on March 2, 2015

Format: Kindle Edition

“CLUB MEDicine,” a debut novel by Jack Kinsley, is an entertaining and ultimately quite thrilling twist for a rehab novel: instead of being a client, the prescription drug-using addict at the center of this book is the owner of the rehabilitation facility. Crystal Heights not just any ordinary rehad, but a small, five-star boutique, ocean-view facility for the super-rich located in the wealthiest part of sun-kissed, coastal Los Angeles. The luxury rehab has ocean views, five-star cuisine, personal trainers, en-suite massages, access to a pool and a spa, daily mental and physical checkups, prescription drugs to ease the pain of withdrawal, and a staff that caters to every whim. But the daily costs to run a facility like this are astronomical and the clients can be extremely demanding and exhausting.
Travis, the main character, is a man who has been through rehab himself. He turned that rock-bottom-of-life experience into a success story. With his bright mind, charming personality, and driven work ethic, he was able to start his own rehab, a business focused on wealthy, neurotic, and spoiled addicts of all kinds. And now many years later, in his $1000 Ferragamo shoes, he feels right at home in that environment…at home, that is, if he weren’t swimming in problems.
Business troubles are not all that’s wrong in Travis’ world; he’s got personal problems, as well. He’s recently separated from his wife, Ana, and beloved five-year old daughter, Bella. Ana wants out of the marriage (mainly on account of his current return to drug use), but worse, she wants to take their child and move back to Romania. Travis just can’t let her do that; Bella means too much to him. But Ana has Travis over a barrel. She’s intimately aware of his current drug use.Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 starsClub MEDicine, Great, quick & exciting read!

By carina on February 23, 2015

In one word – Wow!
This book rocks! It’s a great „edge of your seat“ book that delivers from beginning to end, full of unexpected twists and turns, and an engaging narrative that hooks you from the start. I’m an avid reader and this is one book I could not put down. It had me laughing at times and cringing at others, but I won’t go into details as I don’t want to give away any spoilers! To put it simply, it „grabbed“ me on all levels – a page turner that will keep you guessing until the end.
I can’t wait for the next book from this author!

5.0 out of 5 starsHero? Anti-Hero? Maybe a bit of both.

By Tiffany G. on April 9, 2015

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase

A great read from beginning to end, but definitely not a book that is easy to pin down to any one genre. Part family drama, part comedy, part thriller, this book will take you on a ride to a conclusion you really can’t predict. Travis, the main character, runs a rehab facility, but he is the one who needs some serious intervention. His life is a wreck, riddled with addiction, self-doubt, guilt, crushing emotional loss, struggles with rage and fear, and impulsive behavior that could get him (and possibly others close to him) killed. But despite being one of the most flawed characters I’ve seen in a while, he is a likable person and one you really root for. He has true empathy for others, even those who commit heinous acts, but his brand of tough love may make you uneasy. He also has a keen sense of justice, and is willing to go to extremes to see that justice is done…even if that means breaking the law. And he loves dogs. Really loves dogs. That’s enough for me. I found myself cheering him on in his mission to rescue a puppy from a bad situation and find it a loving home. It’s also beautiful how the character loves his little daughter, Bella. He would do anything to keep her in his life, even if it means he has to commit a terrible act to prevent her from being taken away from him. But he is not painted as a victim here, but as a man who is at least partially responsible for his own problems. Even though he is estranged from his wife, Ana, she is not portrayed as a villain, but rather a person who has a legitimate beef with Travis. And he owns up to it. The climactic action scene is a test of his determination to save a family that may, because of his own wrongdoings, still be taken away from him. Ultimately, this book is about a man dealing with his own personal demons even as he tries to do battle with others’ demons.

5.0 out of 5 starsI’d happily recommend to anyone!

By Shan A on April 23, 2015

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase

Club Medicine is an edge of your seat page turner! However, Mr. Kinsley was gracious enough to give us a roller coaster ride of strong emotions including laughter, throughout the entire book. How can you beat that?
A majorly flawed main character (that you can’t help but root for) surrounded by an entertaining ensemble of characters with plot twists that will leave you thunderstruck. Right when you believe you have it all figured out…..BOOM.
I was disappointed when I turned that last page. Yes, this book is one of THOSE!
I can’t wait till Jack graciously shares his talent and takes us on the next journey with his next book. Great read!! Five solid stars!

WHAT MAKES YOU COME ALIVE?: Uncover the divides that disconnect you from your source of life… Kindle Edition

What Makes You Come Alive is essentially about coming alive. It is an account of my own journey from ignorance towards understanding. I am convinced that we can each have a life by design, but we need to come alive first, and stop merely observing life. We need to awaken to the realisation that we are being coerced into a fate of slavery to someone else’s agenda for our lives. This book aims to evoke courage in you, to arise, to become an active, skillful and mindful creator of the future that you were created to have, and the one that all of humanity yearns for. This book is about learning from the past, changing the choices you make in the present and unearthing the courage to step up to the great life, shaping a new future…It’s about being a Hero…It’s about a Journey…a Divine Romance…it’s about LOVE…

Format Kindle

de Sylvain St-Louis (Auteur)

 

Selon les statistiques, la hernie inguinale affectera un homme sur quatre au cours de sa vie. Pathologie inesthétique, inconfortable et très invalidante, les médecins recommandent généralement la chirurgie comme seul traitement possible. Or, cette opération mineure et efficace dans la plupart des cas peut cependant laisser des séquelles permanentes et parfois même sévères chez un certain nombre de patients.

L’auteur vous propose ici une approche alternative permettant de guérir la hernie inguinale de façon naturelle, sans avoir recours à une chirurgie invasive et potentiellement à risque. La méthode présentée dans ce livre est facile à mettre en pratique. Aucun équipement spécialisé n’est nécessaire et tout un chacun pourra rapidement en constater l’efficacité.

Avant de recourir au bistouri, faites-en l’essai pour un soulagement immédiat et une reprise de vos activités quotidiennes normales. Et plus important encore… bien suivie, cette méthode peut vous mener à une guérison complète et durable.

The Timeliner Kindle Edition

by Rob Satterwhite (Author), Kim Aiken (Editor)

Everyone at some point in time has wished they could do life over. But what if that do-over meant you were ripped away from the one you love the most? What would you do to get back to them?
Just such a choice is given to Army Sergeant Hudson Brantley. Never having lived up to his potential, he elicits and manipulates his way into a top secret Pentagon time travel project and finds himself trapped in his past. Now this twenty-seven-year-old man is stuck in his own twelve-year-old body and must take on a new mission – getting back to his true love, Sarah.
The one thing that drives him on, the one thing he refuses to change, is the powerful love he feels for the woman he left behind. Where she’s concerned everything must play out the same as before. From the date they originally met to the weekend they spent in a beautiful Virginia cabin, it all must be the same. But have the other changes he’s made in this timeline bound him to a different fate? Is the happily ever after he was destined for attainable in his new reality?

Editorial Reviews

Review

From editor, Kim Aiken-

 

As a seasoned editor and a huge fan of the genre, I was thrilled to be part of Rob’s first novel. That this is his first is hard to believe considering the talent he has for weaving plot and creating unique yet accessible characters. Science fiction and romance make for a dynamic read in this book. Effortlessly talented and a stickler for accuracy when it comes to the science and the intelligence world you are about to be immersed in, he has created an original story of love, intrigue and hard choices. I am sure you will (like I did) fall in love with the story of Hudson and Sarah. I hope this is only the first of many novels from Rob Satterwhite.

I was given an advance copy of this book to be able to write an honest review. I didn’t know what to expect from a time travel/sci-fi book but I truly enjoyed this one. It was an unexpected pleasure to read! Not at all predictable, easy to follow, unexpected twists, and great characters. I actually made myself late for an appointment because I couldn’t stop reading it. I definitely recommend this book!

5.0 out of 5 starsFantastic view of the future!

By Rachel Roberson on May 4, 2016

Format: Paperback

The author has an excellent style that pulls you into the world of The Timeliner head first. I find it amazing that a new author has the ability to tell a story rich in character development, style, continuity, exposition, imaginative, yet believable. Most science fiction stories are so focused on the story that character development goes out the window. Not so with this story. As the twists and turns in the story unfolded, I felt like an addict squeezing in a few pages whenever I had a spare minute. Great job!

“Mama – can you hear me”. Sabry Elkoshairy’s Mama Song (Must listen! Amazing!

Koshymedia Music & Recording Studio Releases Sabry Elkoshairy’s Mama Song

Music creator Sabry Elkoshairy releases mama song dedicated to his mother and all mothers around the world!

June 4,5, 2016, Netherlands. Koshymedia is ready with their upcoming release – Mama Song dedicated to all mothers around the world. Conceptualized and composed by Sabry Elkoshairy, the music is an eternal piece celebrating the most beautiful relation of a mother and her child.

The enchanting song is going to get a worldwide release this May and is certainly one of the most exquisite compositions from the musician. The melodious track has been composed beautifully in keeping with the song’s mood that brings out Sabry’s love for his mother. With just the right blend of lyrics and music, the song justifies his feelings perfectly. The well-known artist from Egypt achieved rave reviews for his original compositions during the early 80’s years, but today the genre that was much criticized by people at that time is adored for its art and power that mixes soul touching music with lyrics like never before!

“Mama – can you hear me” is one song that is really close to Elkoshairy’s heart having made much more mesmerizing with the great work in video made by one of his video producers friends. The video depicts the bonding between a mother and her baby – humans, animals, and birds. No matter what species each one belongs to the affection and care bestowed on their child is selfless. Only a mother can be that much endearing and for her child she is certainly the most beautiful of all. Sabry Elkoshairy further continues about the music, “On the other hand, being so very far away from home and from my mother makes me miss her so much and therefore the urge to publish the song. So I dedicate this song to my mother and all mothers in the world.

The song premieres across the world’s digital platforms in few days and even before that fans and music lovers can watch a glimpse of the beautiful track and exclusive video right on Facebook. Koshymedia extend their gratitude to music producer Jacco wijnia , Racquel for the amazing vocals. Also, a special mention to music producer and sound designer Sean Nerney for contributing with such amazing lyrics.

With Aristotle Online: A student chats with the great philosopher through the Internet about Alexander the Great and much, much more… Paperback – April 19, 2016

by Georgios E Manousakis (Author)

Be the first to review this item

Three o’clock in the morning. The young student, AlexanderMegas, had had enough of the endless internet surfing that was getting him nowhere. He’d been searching for hours, trying to what Aristotle had taught his most famous pupil, Alexander the Great, and he was tired. But as he reached out his hand to log off, the screen was suddenly filled with the head of Aristotle, a living, speaking image that spoke to him in a soft, sweet voice: “What are you looking for, lad? I’ve been watching you search for hours. Is there something I can help you with?” Those are the first words in a long conversation about the personality and achievements of Alexander the Great and the life and work of Aristotle, with a brief look at other Ancient Greek philosophers for good measure. Democracy, slavery, drinking parties and homosexuality are just some of the subjects they talk about. Alexander also hears the whole dialogue between Socrates and Crito, which took place after Socrates had been sentenced to death. This is a veritable hymn to democracy, and very much worth reading. The discussion also touches on the mathematical structure of Ancient Greek, and challenges the common notion that the ancient Greeks thought scientific experimentation was unworthy of a philosopher. All these subjects are presented and discussed in a simple, pleasant, easy-to-follow way, so that with no particular effort the average general reader ends up with a good overall picture of Ancient Greek literature and — we hope — an incentive to read more.
