Boca Raton, FL, April 24, 2013 – There are many reports of near-death experiences, descriptions that are remarkably consistent from one person to the next. For those who sometimes doubt the existence of life after death, Dr. Emile Allen presents a compelling personal account of his journey, detailed in Allen’s nonfiction book, Eaten By The Tiger.
One day as Emile Allen, M.D. was operating to save a woman’s life, he barely escaped being electrocuted and nearly died. He remembered hearing a voice telling him: “I’m not ready for you yet. You have more work to do.” He had no way of knowing the challenges he would face or how many times he would hear those words…
Now living with a brain injury, the talented surgeon was thrust into a world where he struggled just to do simple things such as counting change at the grocery store or reading a book. The event not only changed his career but also his identity and capabilities. At the time, he didn’t understand how significant the impact of this incident would be for the rest of his life.
Eaten By The Tiger: Surrendering to an Empowered Life, by Emile Allen, M.D., is a collection of stories and insights acquired through his personal experiences as a surgeon, son and patient that helped get him through the paralysis of emotional and physical loss. He had ridden the gamut of emotions from shock and denial to full-blown depression.
For anyone who has experienced a recent loss or might be struggling with life’s daily challenges, Dr. Allen’s personal journey will undoubtedly inspire you to find your own insights. Regardless of the reason, you will be able to relate to something in his compelling story because it will touch some aspect of your life. Powerful and heartfelt, Eaten By The Tiger gives readers an invaluable gift: a second chance at life.
Dr. Allen is a graduate of Northwestern University Medical School in Chicago. He completed his general surgery internship and urology residency at the University of Iowa Hospital and Clinics. As a retired urologist, Dr. Allen has turned his passion for helping others into inspirational speaking and writing, touching more lives than he ever could have as a surgeon.
