1.0 out of 5 stars Too many incorrect facts in the Summarized Overview alone... wouldn't bother with the rest., 18 Oct 2013
After reading a summary of this book, it was quickly apparent that he doesn't have all of his facts, and that a lot of the information seems to be stemming from a personal opinion. The part on the school requirements for a licensed chiropractor is from 2007 seem a bit brushed by on the curriculum, not mentioning the core classes are similar requirements as a 1st and 2nd year medical student, as well as the fact that requirements have greatly changed since 2007.

There are more facts that he states to not be true, but even if he does not believe them, they are still recorded physiological and anatomical facts. Many of the facts he says are not true have clinical studies to back them up, he must have missed that section of the Journal of American Medicine, and other respected medical journals that have published articles in favor of the effectiveness of chiropractic adjustments for chronic neck and back pain, headaches, blood pressure, etc.

Sounds like a person angry at the chiropractic profession for more personal reasons than practical reasons. Chiropractors improve peoples lives every day without the use of drugs and surgery, how can that be so bad? Is he being paid or blackmailed by someone to write this book??

I believe the AMA has already gone through court rulings back in the 1950's or 60's and charged with sabotage of another profession over this same information, and they were found GUILTY!
