Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This no-nonsense guide to unconventional medicine, by the head of Oxford Health Plan's Alternative Medicine Program and a medical writer, provides a little bit of everything on the subject. Although the prevailing spirit of the book conveys "fun and ease," there is an emphasis on safety, with the scientific literature referenced throughout the text. Loaded with tables, charts, helpful icons, and cartoons, this will appeal to many readers. (LJ 3/15/99) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
