I have had the pleasure of reading the Advanced Reading Copy(ARC) , this book is simply AMAZING!!!! I felt transported back in time to when Max was a little boy, thru the years under the wrath of Hitler, to his struggle of wanting to belong with the BEAUTIFUL people. If he wasn't such an evil vile man, you would almost feel sorry for him. The attention to detail, of the facts, based on actual interviews is astouding. The pictures alone are enthralling and leave you kinda speehless. It makes you really wonder how our country was influenced by this man injecting JFK with mind altering drugs. Each and every detail has been researched and carefully researched again and again. Rick and Bill have truely made us rethink history!!! GREAT JOB

Dr. Feelgood is a non-fiction book that takes place in the 1950's and 1960's. It is about a mad scientist who treats many famous people such as, John F. Kennedy. He created an "energy supplement" for his patients to relieve stress and anxiety. Little did his patients know, he was actually injecting them with harmful amphetamines. This book has a lot of important messages and themes. One being, get to know your doctor before getting medical procedures done on you. Max Jacobson (Dr. Feelgood), changed the lives of many significant figures due to his injections. I liked how in depth this book went. It gave specifics, and talked to many people who were close to Jacobson. If I could change something about this book, it would be to keep the reader interested. A couple times, the author went a little too in depth and lost my interest, but overall I really liked the book. I think this is the perfect story to make into a movie. It's a true story and is very interesting how a doctor was able to drug the president of the
Untied States. I think that this book could be useful for school curriculum, because it shows a unique writing style and in some way shaped what the U.S. is today. Overall, I really enjoyed this book and would give it a rating of a 4.

This book is nothing more than a conspiracy theorist's yarn. While Dr. Jacobson probably did treat those folks mentioned in this story I find it difficult to believe that JFK's treatments had anything to do with the Cuban missile crisis or the Cold War in general. The author attempts to connect puzzle pieces that just don't fit. Furthermore, the author discredits himself by making these inane conjectures and suppositions. If you're looking for a book with some historical value, this is not the book. I wish I could get my money back.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
