    This is a MUST read

    This book, quite literally, is amazing. Hamilton is a Dr. that you wish was your own, someone who deeply cares about not only healing you physically, but emotionally as well. It becomes apparent early on that Hamilton takes healing very seriously and has ideas in store for the reader that prepare the mind for dealing with the realm of the unknown that is medical care. This book is an ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY read for anyone who is battling cancer, or any loved ones. Some of the stories contain within the pages of 'The Scalpel and the Soul' are going to move you to tears, undoubtedly. Yet, you will finish the book feeling spiritually cleansed in a way. It's hard to explain, but this book really is astoundingly good and one that certainly should find it's way into your checkout cart immediately.

    Miracles do happen

    This book written by a neurosurgeon shows the soul most clearly - in a scientific as well as a soulful way. The writer is a surgeon with great compassion and a deep understanding of his patients. It is a book that connects science and spiritual beliefs in such a positive and non-threatening way. I'd recommend it highly.
