Trick or Treatment?, 19 Jan. 2011
This book is excellent starting as it does by looking at the 'first clincial trial' for scurvy the 'first' evidence based medicine with blood letting and a range of excellent discussions based on evidence (if it exists) about many of the so called alternative medicines. If you believe in homeopathy - perhaps this isn't for you. Then again perhaps you are the ideal reader. The serious reader might need to find a copy of The Desktop Guide to Complementary and Alternative Medicine which is the evidence on which the more readable Trick or Treatment was based. A very good book and very readable.
