Author Biography

A member of the National Speakers Association (NSA), Dr. Emile Allen exhibits the insatiable drive and magnetism of a leader and a survivor. The moment Emile walks into a room, you know that you have met the ultimate combination of both. An accomplished surgeon specializing in urologic oncology, he not only built three successful private practices with a cherished roster of patients, but also was the Chief of Urology and Vice Chairman of Surgery at Scripps Memorial Hospital, La Jolla, California. Emile certainly had success by the tail. Little did he know that his near-death experience, as a result of a tragic accident in the operating room, would switch his role from beloved doctor to a patient fighting for his life.

This life-changing event profoundly redirected his personal and professional life, leaving him without a career and with fears deeply etched on his psyche for over a decade. Emile calls these fears ‘the tiger’. His true stories, which are captivating and entertaining audiences nationwide, teach us how to embrace our ‘tigers’ in order to live a more empowered life. Emile provides us with hope and valuable insights so that we can have a ‘do-over’ in our lives, too. His laser-sharp lessons mixed with his electrifying charisma provide a heartfelt perspective on finding your inner brilliance. Emile offers a clear approach on how to identify and embrace ‘the tiger’ within all of us and realize the many gifts life’s challenges.

Reviewed by Maria Beltran for Readers' Favorite

Based on a true story, Eaten by the Tiger by Emile Allen, M.D. is about a doctor who survives a near-death experience while saving a patient’s life. Through his transformative journey of self-discovery, Allen had to face the fear of the unknown, which he calls “the tiger”.

Eaten by the Tiger is an inspirational book that can help anyone rebuild their life. For example, in the hospital, a patient is provided with the medical treatment needed in order to survive; however, helping the patient regain their emotional life balance is often ignored. This book provides the missing piece in the healing process. Emile Allen shares his moving story without exaggeration, yet all the while illuminating us in so many ways. He divides the book into four parts: Part I: Awareness, Part II: Clear the Path, Part III: Gratitude, and Part IV: Moments of Reflection.

Written with honesty and insight, the author's life story unabashedly shows us his shattered pieces and how he manages to put them together. Even though this process apparently is not easy, the path Allen took allowed him to reach higher levels of awareness, which was a very rewarding experience. There is so much to learn in this life, and this book shows us some of life’s most valuable lessons. Readers will absolutely find gold in this book that they will treasure forever. Eaten by the Tiger opens another door for us to look at life from a different perspective.
