    Really enjoyed this book - learnt quite a bit that was new, refreshed on stuff I'd forgotten. Particularly liked the placebo section. I have long thought that the placebo affect is a powerful tool which needs to be harnessed and not something that is seen as an unfortunate effect that needs to be dealt with. And as a complementary therapist I too am weary of us trying to jump through the hoops that government and main stream medicine seem to insist we jump through. Complementary therapy is effective but individual. It is unlikely that we will ever be able to satisfy the mainstream so lets just stop trying and use our energy on getting people healthier and happier - which we are very good at. This book made a decision to stop spending energy on research within my therapy and concentrate on my clients and their improvements much easier. So Thank You Ben!
