Useful, but could have been more
on February 3, 2014
I chose this over other books, because of Becker's much earlier book, The Body Electric. There is nearly 20 years between the 2 books. Becker covers many important details to consider in Electric "medicine." But honestly, I know of far better reports on the subject. I felt like he was holding back, if not ignoring the best of the subject and advances made. He often makes clear in both his books, how important funding is and precarious it tends to be to get funding for any study, despite the advantages a study might offer or reveal. A much better book revealing more about electro-medicine and related info/potential, I recommend Dr. Hulda Clark and Daniel Haley's super work, "The Politics of Healing." Becker is featured in that book, as well. Much of this book by Becker also seems like a repeat of his previous book, Body Electric. I just get the feeling that I might have been better off with other more recent books and findings. This book was published in the early 90s, if not 1990. Its been over 20 years since then. Kind of old, now. Becker revealed much to us over the years, but I do believe there is better stuff out there, now. Its not a bad book, but could have been more and should have been more, even for 1990. Rife "tech" has been around since the 1930's. It should have been addressed.
