    “The weaved stories in the book explore in a realistic and refreshing way how difficult is to let go of the old and face the new, and become the new beings life challenges us to embody when presenting as with adversity. In Eaten By The Tiger, Dr. Emile Allen shows how the strongest struggles can become the fire that consumes the false in our lives, and let the true remain and flourish. Vivid and encouraging!”

  • Ninon de Vere De Rosa, President of Ninon Speaks

    What an amazing book. It is rare to have a doctor get back in touch with his sensitive side and find that there is more to life than work and status. The spirit and bravery of Dr. Allen are astonishing. Eaten By The Tiger fuels the minds of the reader to reflect on their own life, have gratitude, and let go of disempowering beliefs.”

  • Elaine Fantle Shimberg – author of 24 books

    “It’s often said that you need to walk in someone’s shoes to understand their experience. This certainly is true in the book EATEN BY THE TIGER by Dr. Emile Allen where he shares his life-changing experience of being a successful surgeon until a malfunctioning electrical scalpel sent an electrical surge through his finger, arm, heart, and brain, exiting through his ankle. In an actual flash, his life was forever changed.
    Dr. Allen’s vivid description draws the reader into the operating room and through the painstakingly slow motion of the direction of his life. His honesty about his travels through demoralizing depression and despair offers hope to others who may struggle with their own life challenges.
    EATEN BY THE TIGER is a fascinating read for those who have an interest in things medical as well as for those who enjoy a good mystery, one that beautifully describes one man’s search for his identity.”

    Elaine Fantle Shimberg is the author of 24 books, including BLENDING FAMILIES (Berkeley Books) and GROWING UP JEWISH IN SMALL TOWN AMERICA (Abernathy House Publishing).
