Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Dana J Lawrence, DC, MMedEd, MA (Palmer College of Chiropractic)
Description: This is the third edition of one of the chiropractic profession's most important and influential books. It is a compendium of hard scientific knowledge about all aspects of chiropractic, from the social and historical to the clinical and research oriented. It is a significant expansion from the second edition, which was published in 1992, quite some time ago. It contains five major sections: Introduction to Principles of Chiropractic, Introduction to Chiropractic Theory, Introduction to the Clinical Examination, Introduction to Specific Treatment Methods, and Introduction to Management of Specific Disorders.
Purpose: The purpose is to revisit and update the 1992 edition, using information provided by chiropractic clinical scientists and scholars. This is then an overview of chiropractic theory and practice. Given that the last edition of this book is 12 years old, this new edition was sorely needed, and its reality is a great boon to chiropractic education. The book exceeds all expectations the author had for it.
Audience: This is directed at chiropractic physicians and students, and is a superb teaching text for students in particular. It is also useful for anyone with an interest in the most modern educational standards for chiropractic theory and practice. The author is the leading chiropractic researcher and scholar, now an elder statesman for the profession and the section heads are among the most respected in the chiropractic research/academic community.
Features: There are many new chapters, and virtually the entire rest of the book has been rewritten. The number of authors has increased substantially, and all are among the most respected and active in their fields. Each chapter is well written and edited, and each covers a substantial amount of ground. The thoroughness of this book is breathtaking; it gives a complete and comprehensive overview of modern chiropractic theory and practice.
Assessment: This is a critical "must have" book. The original edition and its 1992 revision are among the most respected of all chiropractic texts, and in part form the basis for how modern chiropractic is taught. This book updates and expands upon that information, adding new chapters covering areas of current interest that did not even exist in 1992. This is vastly expanded edition. It is a testament to the growth of chiropractic research that a new book could be conceived. I consider this the most essential of all chiropractic texts, one that all chiropractors should obtain.
