You get short and shallow information about variuos alternative treatments, but a lot of the information has a seroius lack of knowledge and accuracy, for example in the part about acupuncture:
"one wonders if an acupuncturist trained to work on people might try to target a horse's gallbladder meridian not knowing that horses have no gallbladder"
Are you kidding me here, or what?!! You are not working on the actual gallbladder but the energymovement that the meridian supports, namely the wood element, that also effects for instance tendons and muscles. This is the most basic knowledge of TCM - Five element theory! And all the horses I have met had muscles. Actually a lot of muscles, therefore you use points on the gallbladder meridian quite often on horses. OF COURSE a horse has a gallbladder meridian, and anyone can check it up in 2 minutes from any website or book that teaches acupuncture or acupressure for horses. One wonders who is the one not knowing here...
Or the description of aromatherapy: "a pleasant scent can affect ones mood". Eeeh, sure - but that's not aromatherapy! It's not the scent that affects neither you or the animal, it is the chemistry in the essential oil. You inhale the molecules that reacts with your body in various ways, like for example peppermint that has an anticonvulsant effect on smooth musculature - unregarding how pleasant you find the scent or not. And some oils does definitely not smell pleasant at all, but is very powerful anyway, and in a great bigger range than just your mood.
It is obvious that the author doesn't know or understand the very basics in a lot of the methods that is presented. And if you don't even put an effort in finding out, then why bother writing a book about it? Sure, there is a great number of data listed for birthdays, books, historical events and so on, but knowing Hahnemann's birthday won't do you much good if your intention is to find out how homeopathy actually works and how to use it.
So - this book is completely useless, save your money. You can find a lot more objective information with greater accuracy on Google in no time!
