"This wonderful little book...concentrates on complementary and alternative medicine (CAM)....Each of 16 chapters discusses a different CAM modality, and is written by an expert in the field. Each provides a superb overview and is highly referenced....This book is not an in-depth resource....It is, however, a much more portable and useful guide for physicians, nurses, social workers, and patient educators, as they seek to provide information to older persons. Highly recommended."--Choice
"This is the most useful description and discussion of complementary and alternative medicine I have encountered. This excellent book deserves a wide readership."--Doody's Review Service
"...a timely addition to the literature on complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). It has been edited by two highly skilled and knowledgeable professionals in CAM research and practice with contributions from a national sample of recognized experts in relevant fields. This important topic should be given a wide audience."
--From the foreword by Marc S. Micozzi, MD, PhD, Director, Policy Institute for Integrative Medicine, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital
"The book is most appropriate as an introductory text for non-CAM healthcare professionals who work with older adults."-- Karen B. Schmaling and Sandi J. Lane, from PsycCRITIQUES
