Editorial Reviews

Review

"Barrie Cassileth runs the most distinguished service and research team in the world, for complementary medicine ... This book takes no prisoners and courageously investigates the good, the bad and the downright ugly of interventions practiced under the name of complementary therapy. Dr Cassileth comes across as a humane and passionate advocate for the needs of her patients." --Michael Baum, Professor Emeritus of Surgery and Visiting Professor of Medical Humanities, University College London, UK

"Dr. Cassileth pioneered the evidence-based approach to CAM. In this comprehensive and focused book, she eloquently describes clinical practice, credibility and effectiveness, directing the reader to professional sources. As we enter the new global culture of self-directed health care, this is an essential part of both the home and institutional library." --Stephen M Sagar, BSc (Hons), MBBS, MRCP, FRCR, FRCPC, DABR, Professor of Radiation Therapy, McMaster University, Canada

"This book represents a comprehensive record of Dr. Cassileth's years of experience organizing and practicing integrated care for cancer patients. Now that medical carers all over the world are thoroughly aware of the limitations of single target therapies, and while they increasingly turn to holistic care to give greater satisfaction to their patients in a multiple target approach, the book will serve as an excellent reference for both patients and service providers. " --P-C Leung, Director, Institute of Chinese Medicine, The Chinese University of Hong Kong

Format: Paperback
Dr. Cassileth's guide more than lives up to its billing as "essential information." A uniquely visionary thinker, she has written a book that is critically targeted to what really matters to people and is full of empathy without judgment. Plus, her capacity to write simply and clearly is unique. We should be grateful that this achievement is now ours to read, to keep, to share.

The book is reasonably short for the huge field it covers. The information is as reliable as is only can be, and nicely prepared by the great specialist.
