“To call Miracle Man a ‘medical thriller’ or a ‘political story’ would be to do it an injustice. Miracle Man is about miracles, motivations, ethics and morals, and the influence of special interests in the work of genius minds. It’s about one ‘super’ boy’s devotion to solving some of medicine’s greatest mysteries against forces that would divert these great talents to something darker; and it’s ultimately about the ability to withstand moral and ethical temptations against all odds. Readers are treated to a plot with many twists and turns: it holds intrigue, describes compulsions and diversions, shows how a genius battles dark forces within and outside of himself, and generally paints a powerful picture of a search for privacy, as much as meaning.
And so a gripping novel of psychological tension becomes much more than your usual ‘medical thriller’,and is a pick for any who want high octane action and emotionally-charged reading right up to an unexpected, gripping conclusion.” …..Midwest Book Review
STUNNING: FIVE STARS
“The story of Robert James Austin proves the talent of William R. Leibowitz. Rushing like a river in a torrential rain, Miracle Man stuns and entertains, swivels and twirls above and beyond that which we know. Absolutely brilliant in plot and characters, I could not put this novel down for even a second. This novel pulses and throbs with a story that proves both vulnerable and heart breaking. Brilliantly written, utterly entertaining and un-put-downable, Miracle Man is one of those novels of the year that cannot be missed. STUNNING — 5 STARS.” …The Review Broads
A+ RATING: DESTINED TO BE A BEST SELLER
“Once in a while, I come across a book that is just one of the most amazingly written works I have had the pleasure to review. Miracle Man is one of those books. Mr. Leibowitz’ book kept me glued to its pages. Every chapter was a joy to read and the trials and tribulations the main character “Bobby Austin” encountered were dramatically presented. The book was well researched and written with a knowledgeable pen. I have to admit, the author would have had me convinced that this was a biography about a genius of a man, had I not known it was a fiction book. This is a magnificent story.
Miracle Man by William R. Leibowitz is destined to be a best seller. I gave it one of my very rare A+ ratings. It had everything that one could ask for in a good novel. The book is also very “General Audience” in the fact that the author manages to write a dramatically superior novel, without the use of profanity. Give this book a read”. ….William Phenn for blogcritics.org
THE ONLY BOOK YOU SHOULD BE READING RIGHT NOW
“I had put off reading Miracle Man until my son left town for school because I had a feeling it was going to entrap me. There was something about the way the eyes on the cover kept staring at me that I knew there was no way I was going to put the book down. I was right, it was spell-binding from the very first sentence. Miracle Man began with a horrifying jolt that sent you on a page turning thrill ride that not even the ending could release you from.
William R. Leibowitz is a mastermind storyteller and his lead character, Robert James Austin, becomes so alive on the pages. The aching realness of him is what sets this book apart from other stories with superheroes or anti-heroes. His feelings of inadequacy, abandonment and betrayal are all too real to those of us who understand those feelings. And for some of us, what it feels like to get lost in the madness of our own mind and the inescapable nightmares we find waiting in the dark.
This book is incredible. It could have ended cheesy, it could have ended overdone or a hundred different things… but William R. Leibowitz ended it spectacularly. I was very pleasantly surprised and excited, so much so that I still haven’t been able to get the story out of my head. Get this book!” … outnumbered3to1 blog
5.0 out of 5.0 STARS: LOVED THE STORY AND THE CHARACTERS!!! GREAT READ!!!
“Miracle Man is a heartbreaking, inspirational and beautifully written story. I was absolutely consumed by this story the minute I started reading. I found all the characters to be very well written, consistent, organized and enjoyable. Robert James Austin (“Bobby”) is one of the best characters I have ever read. He is simple and genuine. He sacrifices his life for the betterment of mankind, and with it comes so many moments of heartbreak, you just want to shake him and hold him, and as the reader you can feel the other characters in his life who want to do the same. He is such a beautiful character. I don’t want to say more, to avoid spoilers, but this is an incredible book. I loved the story and I loved the characters. I give Miracle Man 5 Stars.” … Courtney Chebat for Savannah Mae Blog

5.0 out of 5.0 STARS: I AM JUST ASTONISHED!! AMAZING
WOW — I am just astonished! Not often do I get to read books I would rate with 5 stars, but this book I would even go higher if they allowed it! What a talented writer and an awesome book. Do yourself a favor and pick it up, clear a day or two, and make yourself comfortable with this book. I read this all at one time and well past my bedtime. It was worth it! I am giving this book 5 stars. They are HUGE ones though. This is one of my favorite books this year. I am hoping for another from this author. I will eagerly await. Thank you. April Epley/Amazon Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0 STARS: MANY FUTURE READS WILL NOW PALE IN COMPARISON!
I have never written a review, but Miracle Man was so amazing I felt compelled to do so. I am an avid reader and to give this book five stars says a lot. I have no particular genre in my book selections … I basically choose them by whatever “catches my interest.” Miracle Man has it all. A bit of mystery, suspense, drama and bordering on the science fiction. The main character, Bobby, is one of the most interesting I have ever encountered in a book. His phenomenal intelligence that cannot even be measured by our current standards is the major theme in this novel. Having worked in the mental health field all of my adult life, I can truly say there is indeed a fine line between extreme creativity/genius and madness. But, this book leaves you guessing whether or not Bobby borders on the paranoia, OR if his hallucinations/delusions are in fact reality. That question is not answered in this book, but I am very hopeful it will be addressed in a sequel. In addition, the part played by the government and big drug companies trying to control Bobby for their own personal interests adds a great suspense factor. This book really makes you wonder if our current medical/pharmaceutical practices have indeed ignored actual cures for disease in order to pad their pockets. And, in accord with modern day politics, the drug companies have our highest leaders manipulated by their DC lobbyists trying to stop Bobby from discovering cures to some of the most tragic of deadly illnesses. Whatever genre you prefer, you will NOT be disappointed in Miracle Man. This book is a bit of a Miracle itself. …Jill Kish/Amazon Reviews
5.0 out of 5.0 STARS: MUST BE YOUR NEXT PURCHASE
Wow! Congratulations Mr. Leibowitz. You have written the best book that I have read this year. Your characters are very well defined and the plot excellent. I allowed myself to read your book without thinking to “solve” it, which comes naturally to me. I will not say more, as I do not wish to ruin the ending for another. There is no doubt, this is a must read book. Run –don’t walk to buy it. 5 STARS. …Grayce Tripodi/Amazon Reviews
5.0 out of 5.0 STARS: OUTSTANDING READ!
This is one of the best books I have read recently. I highly recommend you getting to know Bobby Austin and his world. The author must be very smart as well for coming up with plausible explanations for the Miracle Man’s cures. I cannot wait to see how his son grows up and what is next in his life. I did not expect the twist at the end! Encore, encore! … C.W. Caro/Amazon Reviews
5.0 out of 5.0 STARS: AMAZING STORY
This is now among my favorite novels! The whole story is completely plausible, as the human mind is so misunderstood and so fragile. The premise under which main character, Bobby, chooses to work for the good of humankind, and the alternating twists of plot, made it difficult to put down. Now that I’ve finished, I will not soon forget this multi-dimensional story. Mr. Leibowitz did an excellent job creating characters and an unusual storyline about humanity and the nature of humankind. How he got that into a thrilling novel of intrigue is remarkable. …Alison Taylor/Amazon Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0 STARS: UNIQUE ONE-SITTING READ!!!
This was practically a one-sitting read for me (except for mundane activities that couldn’t be ignored) and was a totally wonderful read! I’m only wondering how long I have to wait to read anything else Mr. Leibowitz will offer us. My choice of reading is usually mysteries and thrillers and Miracle Man was unique among that genre. Patricia Mask/Amazon Reviews
5.0 out of 5.0 STARS: BRAVO!
Just completed reading Miracle Man. I’m a constant reader of many books. Miracle Man was excellent, and worked on many levels: great characters that evolve, story twists, science, cosmology, spirituality, and the premise of off-the-scale intelligence that I’ve not encountered before. It made for a first rate read. Bravo! Zak London/ Amazon Reviews

Wow, is all that can come out of my mouth. I was speechless after finishing this wonderful book. I wasn’t disappointed in anything the book had to offer, nor the author. The climax had me star struck. There was never a dull moment. I was captivated. If you think thrillers are boring, think again. This one will have your full captivation and you will be craving more from the author. Leibowitz did a fantastic, fantastic, fantastic, job on this book and deserves every bit of recognition possible. … Reading and Reviews Blog
5.0 out of 5.0 STARS: EXCELLENT READ !!!
I am a mental health clinician, and I found the characteristics and challenges portrayed in the main character to be amazingly consistent with what we might expect to see in the intellectually gifted. The author also accurately portrayed the emotional and relationship issues that could result from the birth history of this character. I found this to be a fascinating read, and I wouldn’t have enjoyed it if those aspects had not been accurately portrayed. It was also apparent that the author had researched medical technology to arrive at fictional “cures” that were so well-portrayed, giving the book something of a sci-fi quality. This book was excellent done in every way. I look forward to reading more by this author about this character. ….Breadmaker/Amazon Reviews
5.0 out of 5.0 STARS: FIVE STARS
Nothing like a REALLY GOOD BOOK. I read the entire thing in two days. Could hardly put it down. This is my Facebook status review: “Miracle Man” by William R. Leibowitz. His first, as far as I can figure out. Applause. Applause. Applause. Rarely, (this is the first time), do I put a book review in a status. But this one was so good I just couldn’t “not do it.” 447 pages in less than 48 hours, and while working ten hour days. So for all my bibliophile friends out there. This is one you need to take time to read. It is really good. …Paul Grivois/Amazon Reviews

I don’t even know where to start with this book so let’s start with “I loved it.” This is one of the most interesting cast of characters I have ever read in a novel.

I personally hope it becomes a series but it would be hard to top this one. Enjoy! …Jay Scharfman/Amazon Reviews

5.0 out of 5.o STARS: IF YOU BUY ONE BOOK THI SUMMER, BUY THIS BOOK
I bought this book to read with my husband. It was great!!! I have not enjoyed a book as much since I read “Pillars of the Earth” by Ken Follett years ago. A good author is hard to find and William Leibowitz is one of the rare ones. The book is filled with his vast knowledge of science, medicine and mathematics yet he has a way of explaining the subjects which makes it easy for the ordinary person to comprehend. It is a fast paced, easy read. I can’t wait for the next book in the series. …K. Moore/Amazon Reviews
5.0 out of 5.0 STARS: BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR
One of the most thoughtful, compassionate and hopeful stories I have read in many years. I could feel Austin’s struggle, and I cheer in my heart for a man who believed so strongly in helping others. And at the same time, understanding the personal toll this can take on each of us. I admire the author and I imagine he is a person with soul. In particular, I loved all of the characters in the book, but especially Joe Manzini. The love between him and Robert was stirring and rewarding. The ending blew me away, but how very fitting it was. All of the puzzle pieces fit so wonderfully that the final “picture” was absolute wonderment. Thank you, William for sharing so much of yourself in this book. …Gary Dolin/Amazon Reviews

I am an avid reader and had my share of books that I could not put down but this one took the cake. The story and characters are crafted extremely well and the dialogue and story flow like a majestic river. I can not wait for the next book in this series and am hopeful Hollywood gets on the program with this one quickly as it would make a killer movie/saga/series. Speaking of series, this would also easily meet and possibly surpass the HBO crowd as well. …James Rafter/Amazon Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0 STARS: BEST BOOK I HAVE READ IN YEARS!!
This is one fantastic book! Probably the best I have read in many years. What makes it so good? A major part of the plot is based on the reader’s ability to trust the voracity of Bobby’s theories (and therefore, Bobby’s value to human kind.) Although I was reading this for pleasure, I found myself immersed with the author’s vocabulary and presentation of the technical information. I have a science background and while I don’t do any in-depth analysis of the science (nor would I be capable), it felt believable enough that it helped propel my investment in the plot. For me, it really didn’t matter that the science was possible, just that it was believable. The pace was energetic, the transitions easy to follow, and the flashbacks well written and informative. Although I would characterize this book as being dense in the information presented (e.g. Stephen King), the author didn’t take more than a few sentences to effectively describe and convey concepts and ideas that other authors use numerous paragraphs and pages to accomplish. The character development was progressive and believable. The social statements were interesting and worth further consideration. This was a supremely enjoyable book and I look forward to its sequel. …Nurse Bill/Amazon Reviews
5.0 out of 5.0 STARS: GREAT READ
Wow! I loved this book. I don’t find many books that are hard to put down but this is one of them. Very well written and topical. I am looking forward to the continuation of this saga. …Bob’s Your Uncle/Amazon Reviews
“Underpinned by a clever and sophisticated plot, high voltage superhero action makes for a genre busting thriller in Miracle Man by author William R. Leibowitz. A highly original and absorbing read, he brings a unique literary voice to an ever burgeoning genre, but with little interest in trite stereo typical heroes or a world that conforms to simplistic tropes where black and white prevails. Yes, Robert Austin is extraordinary, but to simply label him a superhero isn’t enough without understanding what it takes to become a superhero and this is where Leibowitz truly excels. Rendering Austin’s world in shades of grey, he is both flawed and heroic with moments of vulnerability and great resolve. Writing with an acerbic pen and an exacting eye for detail, Leibowitz gives him real room to grow and you have to admire him in his pursuit of authenticity. It creates a real sense of place and purpose into which Austin must ultimately decide where he fits and provides for some splendid twists to his tale.
Superbly written, and faultlessly executed, Miracle Man will raise much interest in Leibowitz and rightly single him out as an author to watch. Definitely deserving of a place on your bookshelf, it is recommended without reservation!” …Book Viral
5.0 out of 5.0 STARS: LEFT ME IN A STUNNED SILENCE
“Have you ever read a book that left you in a stunned silence? No? Then read Miracle Man by William R. Leibowitz.
As I sit here, I go back through what I have just read. If you haven’t read Miracle Man than you probably have no idea what I am going through. Miracle Man has left me feeling 100 times smarter, but also 100 times stupider! What book has that kind of power? None besides this one that I have just read. I feel like I have an understanding in the world of genetics, mathematics, chemistry, and the medical field that before I would have never had. Miracle Man is absolutely amazing and full of insight. I have no idea where to even start reviewing it. I feel like this book reviews itself in the title alone. This is a great story. I have been seriously stunned into silence by this book. If you haven’t read Miracle Man, I say do so. It will have you look at life in general in a whole new way.” …feedmeinbookblog

5.0 out of 5.0 STARS: BUY THIS BOOK! SO WORTH IT!!
So first of all let me say that reading is not my hobby it’s just part of my life. I read between 4-6 books a week. When I came across this book I was skeptical since I hadn’t read a synopsis quite like this one. I was very disappointed with books recently as they all seemed the same. This one though, this Miracle Man was so different. I absorbed this book, became so immersed in it, I didn’t sleep until it was finished. It was so worth it! I won’t reiterate what the book is about. Everyone below this review has covered it perfectly. So do yourself a huge favor and buy this book. I can’t wait to see if there’s another book coming and what happens next in Bobby’s story. Happy reading! Amazon Reviews

I was moved by the story and the journey of our protagonist, Robert James Austin (“Bobby”), boy wonder and super hero.

Miracle Man by William Leibowitz is an extraordinary adventure that will stay in your thoughts for many years. The storyline, like the protagonist in it, is startling and engrossing. The prodigious mental gift possessed by Robert James Austin in this fictionalized account is stunning to consider and enthralling to think about. The depth of character, the torment inherent in this level of intelligence, and the incredible achievements that are possible are quite simply mindboggling. I really, really loved this story and think you will too. It’s unique, original and special, in so many ways. Kudos to William Leibowitz for his imaginative chronicling of the potential of the human mind, his richly developed humanistic characterizations, and his truly brilliant storyline. This is a must read so pull up a chair and start reading. You’ll be glad you did. 5 STARS!!! …Dave H/ Amazon Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0 STARS: THIS BOOK MAY HAVE BEEN ONE OF THE FINEST THAT I HAVE PURCHASED TO READ
I would start by saying that I am an avid reader and very fussy about my choices. I picked this after reading several reviews and must say that I have been fooled by them before. In this case though, I was not. This book may have been one of the finest that I have purchased to read. First, the overall story is well developed, the characters are believable and not so many that you can not keep track. The story line is one that we all have talked about in general conversation from time to time. The possibility of the main character really coming to fruition, well that is part of the fun of getting lost in a novel. I say yes, others may disagree. The story development takes you through time periods that are certainly real and meaningful. The suspense is palatable with enough energy to keep you turning the pages. Overall I thought this was an excellent read and I look forward to another similar writing. Louis Cardis Jr/Amazon Reviews
5.0 out of 5.0 STARS: SCIENCE, MATHEMATICS, MYSTERY AND SUSPENSE THRILLER
The late Michael Crichton, when something bothered him, would chew on it and similar to an oyster producing a pearl, would produce his own pearl in a new book. It seems that Mr. Leibowitz has the same ability to produce a pearl in written form. What a combination: science, mathematics, mystery and suspense. One would never think that this would be interesting, but in the hands of Mr. Leibowitz this one will keep you flipping pages as fast as you can read. Robert James Austin is a fascinating character with an I.Q. off the charts. While it puts him in high demand, it also marks him as a very lonely person. There is so much going on within these pages that if I told you more it would spoil it for you so I will not. Let me assure you that once you get started with Miracle Man you are not going to want to stop until you finish –so I recommend you start early. Mr. Leibowitz has provided us with a very clever exciting book and I do hope he does provide us with a sequel. …VicG/Amazon Reviews
5.0 out of 5.0 STARS: FANTASTIC BOOK!!
Miracle Man was a book that I could not put down. A wonderful read with great characters, plots and story line. A fascinating look into how someone with brilliance that’s off the charts leads his life, and the difficulties he must overcome. …Suzcar/Amazon Reviews
5.0 out of 5.0 STARS: WONDERFUL BOOK!
I ordered a Kindle copy of Miracle Man for myself and I sent a paper book copy to my son. I found it to be a great book. One of the best books I have ever read. These are my son’s words: “Wow! I read Miracle Man in one day! Couldn’t put it down, and it’s been a long time since a fiction book got me like that. In fact, one of the best books of all time is The Count of Monte Cristo, a classic, and I list it as one of the best books I have ever read. Now I’ll have to put Miracle Man with it. Crazy –it’s the author’s first book and if his second one is out, I’ll have to read it too. I list Miracle Man as one of my most favorite books ever.” He goes on to say that I should tell you that he has been incarcerated for the past ten years and he has read hundreds of books. We look forward to reading more writings by William R. Leibowitz. …Amazon Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0 STARS: EXCELLENT BOOK! LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT IT
“I do a lot of reading—so I am constantly looking for something new to get excited about. I felt compelled to write this book review since I have been a little frustrated lately with the efforts of the big name fiction writers you all know and I am quite excited by the idea of a new favorite author to follow for a while. I recently stumbled upon Miracle Man by William R. Leibowitz. In short –great main character, great story line, very enjoyable writing style that makes the book flow quickly, believable plot, etc. –All the things you hope for in a great book. Miracle Man appears to be the author’s first effort–and I certainly hope it is not his last. I loved everything about this book. The author does a really great job of developing the story and all the characters involved. The main character (Robert James Austin) is a super genius using his powers for the forces of good in the world who has to deal with some powerful forces conspiring against him (internal and external)—morality (in the non-religious sense), human nature (good and bad), corporate ethics (mostly bad)—these are all covered within a very smartly written storyline surrounding a truly great character. The author almost has me believing that he is some form of genius himself… I look forward to Mr. Leibowitz’ next offering. I have placed Miracle Man on the very short list of books that I consider to be really great fiction. Add it to your reading list immediately and you will not regret it. I recommend it highly.” P. Bainlardi/Amazon Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0 STARS: A CAPTIVATING AND PROVOCATIVE STORY FROM A NEW AUTHOR
“I just finished reading this amazing novel. Mr. Leibowitz has truly created a masterful tale of scientific accomplishments, romance, and industry intrigue that will keep you in constant suspense. The only thing missing was a warning: ‘Do not begin to read if you have early appointments!’ Enjoy!” … Diane Arvizu/Amazon Reviews
WHAT MAKES A STORY WELL WRITTEN?
“I highly recommend Miracle Man –it’s compelling. The story flows and has enough twists and changes to always keep you entertained. The novel’s characters are unique and interesting. The book’s main character and the hero is Robert “Bobby” Austin. Bobby is truly a different type of hero. He has all the wonderful ingredients that make a person love and admire the hero. Tragedy after tragedy weighs him down, he continues to persevere and triumph, and ultimately is set on a path of confrontation. Please don’t misunderstand me –Leibowitz has created a character that is both a hero and an anti-hero and does not fit into a pattern or formula. The character never gets stale and predictable. While our hero is unique, I believe that Mr. Leibowitz did not let us down with the story’s antagonists. The story has several villains, each posing serious threats to Bobby or his loved ones. But it is the unique foe that Robert Austin ultimately pits himself against that makes this book. This foe changes Bobby, affects the people around him, and continues to drive the hero, the story and the reader. I don’t want to be a spoiler so I will have to leave it at this.Well written? What makes a story well written? Heroes you cheer for, characters that you empathizewith, and villains that you can loathe. All of that plus –plot and style.
Miracle Man presents all this and more. It is a very well written book that made me sympathize greatly with the hero and the people in his life. I cheered him on, wished great things for him, and great harm to his enemies. Give Miracle Man a read.” …William Hargrove for ReaderViews
5.0 out of 5.0 STARS: ONE WORD: AWESOME
“I read this book in one sitting, and I have to say it’s one of the better books I’ve read in a very long time. I generally read between four and six works of fiction every week, and for me to say this is one of my favorites is really saying a lot. All I can say is that you need to read Miracle Man. At the end of the book, it seemed to me that there could quite possibly be a very exciting sequel, maybe even the possibility of a series. I hope there is at least one more in the works –I’ll read it nonstop when it comes out. Buy this book –you will definitely not be disappointed.” …Mark Mavrantonis/Amazon Reviews
5.0 out of 5.0 STARS: STAGGERINGLY GOOD
“I absolutely loved this book and couldn’t stop reading it. Robert James Austin (the protagonist) deserves a place alongside the most compelling modern literary heroes–he’s vulnerable and flawed, but believable, extraordinary and likeable. In fact, all of the characters in Miracle Man are multi-faceted and evolve as the story progresses. Skillfully paced, always surprising and cinematic in its imagery, I can’t help thinking what an incredible movie this novel would make. And despite the darkness, the psychological tension, the intrigue and endless conflict (on so many levels), Miracle Man is inspirational and uplifting. This is a book for our times. We need a Miracle Man. Trust me –you haven’t read a book like this.” J. Lordae/ Amazon Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0 STARS: A SIZZLING GOOD TIME
“Loved, loved this book. An honest to goodness thriller from start to finish. Characters jump off the pages and get under your skin so you cannot put it down. Topical and smart. Miracle Man should be the next book you read if you’re looking for a rollicking good time.” ….Rick Joseph/Amazon Reviews
5.0 out of 5.0 STARS: AN AMAZING READ
“It is quite a feat recently for me to find a book I consider a 5 star book. It is also quite a feat to discover a 5 star read which totally held my attention and took me several days to finish. Miracle Man is that book. I was totally blown away by the story. There were several points within the book where the author throws in a total curveball. He even throws in one right at the end which could point to another book. I would love to see where the author takes the story should he do a sequel. An amazing read from an author who draws you into the story in such a way you will find yourself rooting for Bobby to achieve everything he sets out to, and hating those who are out to stop him. The author shows his own talent throughout the whole of the story. A definite one to watch in the future.” Fiona Wilson/Amazon Reviews
5.0 out of 5.0 STARS: A COMPELLING BOOK…. I COULDN’T PUT IT DOWN

“This story is amazing and carries the reader forward with every twist and turn. The main character, “Bobby”, is indelibly imprinted in my brain. I think about him and worry about him as though he is real and I am hoping William R. Leibowitz that you see this review and realize that this reader wants a sequel.” …the Bam/Amazon Reviews
FASCINATING, THRILLING AND REALISTIC!
“This book sure has an opening. I’ll definitely say that. The prologue is mysterious, interesting and really makes you want more right away. The author has the hook down pat. I don’t want to spoil it. I see a bunch of reviewers telling you what the beginning is, but it’s better that you just read and find out, because I didn’t expect what it was from the opening! It kept me reading, and I think it’ll keep you reading as well. This book’s got a great storyline. I thought the author really took the time to flesh Bobby out, and really give us a driving force for him. He’s a great character, and with great people, there’s always someone trying to manipulate them. That’s exactly the story here. It’ s perfect. The writing is solid, the story is refreshing and it’ s got a strong main character. Technically speaking, the author has written a great novel. It flows, it draws you in, and it finishes strong. As for plot, you’ve got a genius character, who we follow through his life, and the great thing is that this book isn’t over anyone’s head. It’s a read for every person who likes thrillers and science. It’s a thriller, not just in the hidden agendas and motives but also on a personal level, because you really start to care about Bobby, and want to see Bobby happy and succeeding in what he chooses. It really pulls you in, you just start to feel it.” ….Sunshine and Mountains Book Review Blog

5.0 out of 5.O STARS: A WELL-WRITTEN AND AMAZING READ
“Where do I begin with my review of “Miracle Man” by author, William R. Leibowitz? Well, for starters, it was a fantastic read… Based on the story found within Miracle Man, Leibowitz appears to have a fundamental grasp of the sciences and it shows in his writing. Leibowitz is also explanatory and descriptive, yet he does so without becoming verbose or tediously long-winded as many “scientific” writers are often wont to do. Finally, Leibowitz takes care to engage the reader in an interesting manner, and has even used events/happenings from our current day and age to infuse a true-to-life realism to this tale. For those of you who enjoy well-written books, or books that center around science, mathematics, medical, et cetera, then “Miracle Man” is a “must” read.” …Charline Ratcliff/Amazon
“In our modern world, we often hear about scientific discoveries that lead to new drugs and new ways to treat disease. We hold fundraisers and race for the cure. Do we find the cure? Or are we just finding new ways to spend money on costly treatment plans instead of getting rid of the diseases themselves?
“Miracle Man” is a fascinating novel that explores intelligence, corruption, politics and the pharmaceutical industry. This is fiction, but it is timely and will make you think about the real life implications of the questions raised in the novel.
The author, William Leibowitz, doesn’t have a professional background in the sciences. He has a law degree from Columbia and currently practices entertainment law in New York. This gives him a unique perspective that works.
“Miracle Man” is an entertaining read that will leave you wondering “what if…” …..Valerie Mitchell/Sweeps 4Bloggers

5.0 out of 5.0 STARS IF ONLY…BUT IT COULD HAPPEN!
“This book hit a little too close to home with me right now! For the past six months I have been dealing with trying to get a proper diagnosis for an immune ailment that is causing various symptoms. Reading a story about a boy/man that has the ability to create and come up with cures for many of the illnesses that are plaguing our world was not only heartwarming but also made me think that is possible! The idea of having someone who has the mental ability to see things that many of us can’t is really incredible. But along with this “gift” comes the life of never being normal. This story take you through the life of Austin and gives you an insight into the struggles he experienced and how certain people were put into his life to help him. Great read! I really enjoyed this story, unique but could happen!” …S Gallegos/Amazon Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0 STARS: INCREDIBLY ORIGINAL –YOU WON’T FIND A BOOK LIKE THIS!
“Miracle Man sucked me in from page one and then kept spinning me around like I was in a whirlpool! This novel has Big Pharma intrigue, CIA shenanigans, a healthy dose of romance, and the ultimate ‘anti-hero’ –Robert James Austin. Mix this up with suspense that doesn’t quite, gripping psychological tension and plot surprises galore. For me, Miracle Man was like watching a great movie –you don’t want it to end. And when this book ends (and OMG –what an ending!), all I wanted to know is –when is the sequel coming out? Read this book –you won’t find another like it.” … Thomas Landsberg/Amazon Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0 STARS: WOW. THE ENDING KNOCKED THE BREATH OUT OF ME!
“I was initially drawn to this book because I am a psychologist. While my training helped me understand parts of the book, I don’t think it’s essential in understanding the plot or completely adoring Bobby, the main character. A few of the psych testing are inaccurate, but it’s easy to dismiss in the name of fiction. Without giving away the story, I was thoroughly entranced in watching Bobby grow up and become successful, navigating life experiences along the way. There were unexpected plot twists along the way that kept the story fresh and interesting. The characters made it easy to step into their world. Overall, I would recommend this book for anyone that likes psychological thrillers!” …Ashley Hampton/Amazon Reviews
5.0 out of 5.0 STARS: TERRIFIC BOOK!
“Been meaning to post something about the novel Miracle Man by Bill Leibowitz for a while. It was a gift and a terrific one at that! All of us lead such busy lives and this is a book that is certainly worth your time. Miracle Man is such a surprising read about a unique young genius Bobby Austin. I hated to put this book down and looked forward to every moment I had to pick it up again. Loved the characters, the story, and just really loved this book! I give it 5 stars!” ….Jujifruit/Amazon Reviews

“A perfectly wonderful read. Well researched and plausible, there is an intriguing spiritual element, one that is unique in such stories and an urgency, not often found.” … Pacific Book Review
“In his debut novel, Miracle Man, William R. Leibowitz puts a new twist on the thriller. Along the way, he exhibits a keen knowledge of science and medicine. Some readers will see in Robert James Austin (the protagonist), a leading spiritual figure for the modern era.” …Palmetto Review
“Miracle Man is a smart thriller that blends together suspense and science in a story of one very special young man’s coming of age. There are enough twists in the plot of Miracle Man to keep things exciting, and Bobby Austin himself is a novel character –a genius who wants to work for the good of mankind, but is driven to self-doubt and bad decisions by his own demons and past. In fact, part of what makes this book so enjoyable is because unlike in many thrillers, the suspense isn’t driven by action alone –it’s also driven by the reader’s wish for Bobby to find happiness and freedom for himself. It’s suspense that arises both from dangerous situations and from the reader’s personal investment in the character, who you watch grow and stumble and succeed from age four to adulthood. There’s also some romance, a reunion, and themes of different kinds of family to add emotional heart to the book. Recommended to readers of suspense novels, as well as to readers who enjoy character-driven contemporary fiction. ” … Penn Book Review
“Miracle Man is highly original. It’s a fresh idea. In all my reading, I haven’t seen this plot before.”
