  BOOK REVIEWS: A NECESSITY IN A VERY COMPETITIVE MARKET                

 

 

 

Books and reviews are inseparable. Reviews are fingerprints of the authored work they intend to display. A proper critique demands an appropriate analysis to draw out the best in a book. Many books languish, forgotten relics of hard work and vision. My job as a book reviewer is to flesh out important aspects of a publication so potential readers will be drawn into the substance of the work. There are very few bad books. Yet there are many poorly conceived reviews. A reviewer’s challenge is give his or her reader a flavor of the book being considered. With the latter in mind a book review should be authentic, unique and well written.

 

Best Book Reviews came into existence because its owner, Mark Davis MD, was not able to obtain appropriate review services when needed for his works. The few reviewers available requested outrageous prices to perform the work. Dr. Davis has a wide experience reviewing, proofing and copy editing books and journal articles. He reviews nonfiction books of most genres and science fiction. Whether it is a hard back, paper format, E book or other digital representation the review is always thorough, timely and worth the limited expense. Dr. Davis’ rates for review are extremely competitive. Do not let your book languish. A good review highlights booth the author and his work.

Madonna F Bombs the Nation’s Capital

Madonna F Bombs the Nation’s Capital

 

Meandering through the streets of Washington D.C., one day after Donald Trump’s inauguration, gaggles of women came to voice their concerns about our new President. Included in this group were the famous, infamous and the desperate. Stars of liberalism were sprinkled throughout the crowds. None was more ferocious than the queen of sexual deviancy than Madonna Louise Ciccone or simply Madonna.

 

Giving voice to tens of thousands whose lives are hidden behind commonality Madonna’s sharp tongue articulated the inexcusable. In an unintelligible rant fraught with the F word Madonna exhorted personal considerations to destroy the White House. This dissolute creature who pulled herself up from the gutter believes her wealth and fame should allow her to threaten anyone she is in disagreement with. Donald Trump is presently in the crosshairs of her less than insightful mind. Before he has had the chance to sign one piece of legislation into law this vixen of song wants him to meet his Maker by her hands. Normally when a person utters statements similar to hers the Secret Service would be at their door. Yet Madonna appears to have escaped government scrutiny for her verbal failings at least for now.

 

Women and others claiming to be women protested in the time honored tradition allowed by the Constitution. They came to Washington by the tens of thousands to deride the new President in media created belief that Trump believes women are beneath him. A small percentage of this motley group stepped over the line by displaying disgusting physical representations of female body parts. Reflecting Madonna’s sentiments many utilized threatening gestures and words in a mindless attempt to derail a new government. Part of the conversation concerned Trump’s personal morality. If there were comparisons to be made with the new President the morality of the provocateurs should be questioned.

Donald Trump, in his usual style, tweeted the following concerning those who descended on the Capital: “Watched protests yesterday but was under the impression that we just had an election! Why didn’t these people vote? Celebs hurt cause badly.” His words were not ones of dissension but of observation. President Trump believes in the right to gather, protest and let off a little verbal steam. He questions the motivations of celebs who want to capture the limelight for one more spin around the block before going into oblivion. Distraught that America now has an alpha male in power instead of a gamma liberal minds seek to undermine the legitimacy of this new President. Their failures only strengthen the new Presidency which displayed enormous reserve in not constraining and containing these reprobates.

 

Donald Trump’s First Amendment beliefs were on display this weekend. Unlike Nixon, who I also admired, our new President could have ordered harsher tactics upon those who threatened the nation’s central seat of power. He did not. In doing so Trump set the tone of toleration for his term in office with one caveat: he will call out anyone who denigrates him. Celebs should be placed on notice the people are back in power. While Trump is clearing out the mess Obama left if you want to see the former denizen of the Oval Office make a left, head towards the left coast and follow the signs to la la land.

SPEX TEST: WHY YOU COULD WITHOUT GUIDANCE

SPEX TEST: WHY YOU COULD FAIL WITHOUT GUIDANCE

 

     As many physicians have discovered the Special Examination (SPEX) test was designed to fail. This exam’s broad contents, extensive set of questions and limited time to complete have caused an extremely high failure rate. Literature by the Federation of State Medical Boards, concerning this exam, is vague and misdirects applicants on what material to study.

 

     SPEX test consists of 336 questions broken down into 7 sections. Each segment contains 48 questions that must be finished in 64 minutes. This requires that examinees finish each question in 1.3 minutes. Many questions are 10 or more sentences in length with attached graphs, diagrams and or x-rays. Examinees are provided insufficient time to evaluate the circumstance of each question therefore choosing the correct answer becomes extremely difficult. This test is not a fair representation of a physician’s knowledge or abilities. Yet state boards require this unfair test under a number of circumstances. Usually a physician who has been away from practice for a prescribed period of time is a candidate. Unfortunately most medical boards provide no help in directing the physician where to emphasize his or her time. For the aforementioned reasons SPEX TUTORIAL SERVICES came into being.

 

     One on one tutoring helps candidates for the SPEX exam focus on the proper course of study. Your tutor, Mark Davis MD, has accumulated a vast experience with this exam. His knowledge ranges from specific question content to the flow of subject matter on recent exams. Dr. Davis will discuss which books and videos will give you the most return for time spent. With a physician’s limited time learning the most important aspects of the SPEX test will give the examinee a clear edge in order to pass this exam.

 

     To schedule time with Dr. Mark Davis please use the following email: platomd@gmail.com or the following phone numbers: service 410-515-7858 or office 410-515-7848. Tuition is $250 per hour. Your time and money will be well spent with this service. All interactions are performed with strict confidentiality. Thank you, Mark Davis MD.
