    This short, reference-like book is not a bad way for a Christian to start his/her approach to Alternative Medicine and Therapies. The authors avoid the "all bad" approach, and I think they try to give a fair introduction to the various therapies that are on offer. I would point at that any analysis is brief, and I think the implementation of some of these therapies is probably more diverse that is credited. Also I would note that the book primarily seems aimed at the US market - and thus what is licensed / regulated / legal / covered / etc will differ as I know it does here in Australia. It is also 20+ years old, and things have no doubt changed in the industry as well... As noted, this is not a bad little reference book, or as a place to start to learn more about this area. I would've appreciated a more thorough "further reading" - especially one that covered each specific therapy.
