The Naked Chiropractor
Insider's Guide
to Combating Quackery
and Winning the War
Against Pain

Dr. Preston H. Long

The Naked Chiropractor exposes everything you need to know about back pain and the facts Chiropractors and Alternative Medical Practitioners prefer that you did not know. The inside story of the wars between unscrupulous practitioners and insurance companies. Behind the scenes stories about what's really going on at State chiropractic boards across the nation.

Spin Doctors
The Chiropractic
Industry Under

Paul Benedetti
Wayne MacPhail

Canadians visit chiropractors about thirty million times a year, and surveys show that patients are generally satisfied with them. But Paul Benedetti and Wayne MacPhail have another opinion. Their hard-hitting CANOE.CA web site called Spin Doctors I & II were instrumental in educating the public about the excesses of some chiropractors. This book took years to write, and it is a must read for anyone who plans to go for chiropractic treatment, or who pays for insurance that covers it.

Sam Homola, D.C.
Stephen Barrett, M.D.

A behind-the-scenes look at chiropractic written by a forty-three- year veteran in the field.

Mike Saks

As its title suggests, this book provides a sociologist's perspective on "healers...practising...outside the boundaries of conventional medicine". Easthope's narrative reports from the field enliven his analysis, which provides a social context for understanding the appeal and varying 'effectiveness' of both unorthodox and orthodox healers. The resulting book, concise and readable, contains much of interest from a general-semantics perspective.

The Trick Is to Know the Difference

George A. Ulett

Although alternative medicine is now studied seriously in The National Institutes of Health and Harvard Medical School, questions of efficacy and practitioner motivation still cloud the topic. Alternative Medicine or Magical Healing attempts to give a balanced picture of the New Age healing movement and sorts out which treatments should be approached with caution or avoided, and which might be useful as complements to traditional medicine. Dr. Ulett was one of the first American physicians to study in China and Japan, and pioneered the use of acupuncture in this country. His long interest in holistic healing reflects an open-mindedness to other ways of treating and an interest in healing both body and spirit. Dr. Ulett is a past Director of the Missouri Department of Mental Health. He currently has a private practice in Psychosomatic Medicine and Psychiatry.
