Warrior Heartbeats is an upbeat story of recovery from problems created by today's medical system, supposedly designed to prevent them. It is also a romantic love story between a husband and a wife who saves him, physically as well as mentally. The book is filled with humor, because the author knows, and shows, that laughter is the best medicine.

The author is a Marine, an ex-cop, and a journalist nominated twice for a Pulitzer when he worked for the New York World-Telegram & Sun, over 50 years ago. Today, he is an award-winning author of three books with well over 100 positive reviews. The best one, from satirical writer Robert Eggleton, says: "This book may have saved my life."

A retired physician says Warrior Patient: "Should be required reading for doctors."

"This book is ... a comfort, it is a love-story, it is important."-- WordsAPlenty

"Humor is the best doctor you will ever know." Williams ... follows his own advice. – KirkusReviews.

"A great 'how-to' in overcoming diseases with laughter, good doctors, love, and guts." – Dennis Waller.

"It's a witty story full of unexpected humor." – Readers' Favorite

"Save your life and read this book" – Patrick Middleton, author

100,000 patients die, and nine million suffer injury every year. If medical mistakes were a disease, it would be the sixth leading cause of deaths in America.

As you read Warrior Patient, you become one of the nine million who suffers injury every year. You take an extraordinary, often amusing journey into the quicksand of modern medicine. In the midst of a long list of life-threatening illnesses, you learn to laugh as you survive.

"A strong 5-star rating ... read this book now, not tomorrow or the next day, but now." -- WordsAPlenty.
