According to report on the New York Times, bestselling author Dr. Michael Palmer has died at 71. Reports state that he suffered a heart attack while returning from an African safari.
What I find most interesting about the article is the way it focuses on Palmer’s writing as a therapeutic tool to overcome drug and alcohol dependence.
â€œI loved the feeling of being in control when my life was not,â€ the article quotes Palmer has having said.
Palmer was the author of Extreme Measures, Political Suicide, and many others.
