Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

The Select by F. Paul Wilson

This is a stand alone book and not related to the Repairman Jack series.  Quinn Cleary has wanted to be a physician for as long as she can remember.  Despite her awesome intellectual successes as a student, her family is unable to afford medical school tuition.  She and her life long pal, Matt, apply to The Ingraham, the most prestigious medical school in the country.  Matt’s buddy, Tim, applies as well with no real drive to being a physician.   Tim’s eidetic memory and substantial intellect supersede his uncaring playboy attitude.  The three take the notorious Ingraham entrance exam and the fun begins.

The Ingraham may not be what it seems in spite of it’s providing a full boat for all those admitted.  It also requires strict adherence to it’s philosophical underpinnings. 

Tim’s rebellious behavior and Quinn’s abiding compassion lead the two down a path of perfidy.   Matt, although a bit player, provides a lifeline that is instrumental to some major upheavals.

Wilson suggests a frightening method of medical care and provides sufficient arguments which compel serious thought.

I recommend the book.


This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
