The basic tenet of the book is that acupuncture works by vibrations of water that travel through the body. The author denotes a basic lack of understanding of what science constitutes and how the process of proof is applied to problems to be studied. To understand how the author is unprepared for his two year investigation of acupuncture one can see that the academic training of the author is with an undergraduate degree in economics and a masters in international business and not chemistry, biology, medicine or any discipline which are the subjects that he discusses. Many findings originated from Chinese medicine including acupuncture for pain relief and the use of retinoic acid and Arsenic trioxide for Acute myeloid leukemia have shown to be effective therapies by rigorous scientific studies, however Mathtew Silverstones book fails on all accounts to be deserving to be included in this category of acceptable science. All in all the book is a utter and complete waste of time and the author demonstrates a deep rooted lack of understanding what constitutes the scientific process. Given the amount of misinformation it generates, the book is without a doubt completely worthless if not harmful to those not well versed in the scientific method.
