5.0 out of 5 stars A book on human biology with the love and awe left in!, 4 Dec. 2008
This review is from: Holistic Anatomy for Healers, Heretics and Alternative Folk: An Introduction to Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology and Deep Holism (Paperback)
A very interesting and enjoyable book to read.

I am fairly familiar with the sciences and have been studying anatomy and physiology as part of my uni course, and this book, though not as indepth as my text books, provided something they never could - it helped link up and fill in gaps surrounding my other knowledge, giving a good grounding, looking at the body in a way that brings love and awe and even giving ways of living a more healthy, balanced life (did you know that studies have shown paracetamol to make the flu last days longer? Now I know!)

I also like all the little deviations from mainstream science: studies done at the fringes and traditions of other cultures. This to me seems so important in a world where often only a very limited and limiting perspective is given.

So overall, I think my knowledge and life has been in someways enriched by reading this book.
