Hotchkiss Magazine featured Warrior Patient in its Winter 2015 edition on Page 41. The entire piece:

Temple Williams spent many years as a journalist and editor, Hotchkiss Magazineincluding for The World Telegram and Sun in New York and, in the 1970s, Reader's Digest, and was twice nominated for a Pulitzer Prize. Since then, he’s developed marketing software for IBM, served as president of the world’s largest b-to-b marketing consultancy, worked as a real-estate broker, and run an equity trader’s website that taught hundreds of traders how to make money using “Spoos” (Standard & Poors futures) as a primary investment tool. Temple, today the principle broker and managing director of Templeworks Properties LLC in in Boca Raton, FL, has now written his first book: Warrior Patient: A Memoir of Survival, Hope, Love and Laughter. It’s a story told “with humor and an anecdote-rich history that captures characters, times, and places, from good doctors to bad ones, from childhood to old age, from Africa to Sweden.” In it, Temple details his personal medical travails of the last few years (including cancer, kidney failure, dialysis, shingles, hernia; even partial amputation of one of his fingers) and lists the “17 rules it takes to…survive, to live again.” As he puts it: “People go to the hospital. People die. Warrior Patient tries to put as much distance as possible between those two sentences.” Of the 17 rules in his book (one for each chapter), his favorite is number 17: “Humor is the best doctor you will ever know.”
