Editorial Reviews

Review

"[T]his book represents the very best of contemporary albeit on the whole skeptical scholarship. It is highly refreshing to find a collection that does not toe a line but instead gives a wide range of pros and cons and includes some new and stimulating ideas... [I]t is wonderful that academic honesty is still alive and well... For those people actively researching in the field of CAM this book is a 'must have'."

(Kevin M. Purday Metapsychology)

"We see here people deeply concerned about the infiltration of quackery into the healthcare system and how it is undermining important advances in medicine and society... In perhaps the most moving essay we read Michael Baum looking at the concepts of holism in medicine and the vapidness of CAMs view of holism... Baum does this in a way that no quack could ever come close to and tells us how, 'alternative versions of holism are arid and closed belief systems, locked in a time warp, incapable of making progress yet quick to deny progress in the fields of scientific medicine'."

(Scientific and Medical Network)
