The blurb on the back talks of proof of psychic phenomenon and acupuncture but that is far form what the text explains. A very well written account of an orthopedic surgeons research into some very interesting physiology. An exploration of the electric control system in the body, long shunned by science, but now being used to treat diseases such as alzheimer's. It introduces concepts such as the piezoelectricity of bones and the semiconducting properties of proteins. An exciting read for anyone with an interest in physiology or electronics. Best read in a while.

What a great book, I enjoyed reading this book so much that I've just read it again, it's the kind of book that needs to be read a few times because of all the information it contains.. it's rather sad though that 95% of the orthodox/allopathic medical community have ignored Dr Becker's research & continue to believe the outdated crap they're taught in medical school... Electromedicine is the future.. I recommend this book to anyone at all interested in looking outside the box of chemically based medicine & the dangerous pharmaceutical industry that controls it...

This book is the story of how an honest, brilliant doctor and scientist came close to starting research that could have had people with spinal injuries walking again. His funding was pulled by Big Pharma. But read the story and see what you think. And don't forget to look up Colloidal Silver on Google to see what is missing from your medicine cabinet.

A rare insight not only into the complexities of our bio chemical body terrain at the essential celluar level but the insightful and thought proviking workings of the inner scientific mind of the researcher and author as he seek out scientific "truth" as to how the our bodies operate both insickness and in health.

Robert O. Becker, the 20th century pioneer of research in bioelectric phenomena, does a masterful job of leading the reader into the invisible yet profound world of electromagnetism and its effect on all living organisms. At times awe-inspiring, at others frightening, Becker ends his book with more questions posed than answered, both in the realm of medical implications of tissue regeneration and in the realm of electropollution and its possible ramifications for our industrialized society. An excellent book for the intellectually curious.

This book is a classic and should be required reading for all medical students and biologists. If we really had a National Health Service this information would be disseminated immediately, but unfortunately the drug companies rule and we all have to suffer so their directors and shareholders can profit. Becker clearly demonstrates that regeneration of lost limbs in mammals is possible and has donemuch of the work in achieving it. He also underpins the current craze for colloidal silver with hard evidence of teh efficacy of positive silver ions. Anti biotic resistant bacteria? No problem with silver - except for the drug companies. If you think this review is contemptible for attacking the pharmaceutical industry, then read the book and then decide.
If you care about health and the future of mankind, then read this book.

This book got me to appreciate a fundamental problem in biology.

Becker describes some experiments that he did, trying to hack at this problem. Also some important experiments done by people before him. The results are almost mindblowing.

It is easy to read and not technical. If you did GCSE physics, you can understand it.

Now I want to understand some more physics

Written so that the lay reader experiences the sense of adventure, the frustrations, and the triumphs as some of life's most fundamental secrets are revealed and lucidly explained. A classic with far reaching implications into our daily life, written by a man with impeccable and possibly unique credentials in this field.
