From Library Journal:

This work describes over 160 therapies in a thorough, consistent manner, making no exaggerated claims. Everything is here, including some treatment modalities that are not very "alternative," such as walking, physical therapy, and aerobics. The detailed histories of how various therapies were discovered can be hard to find elsewhere. Often the authors, a licensed acupuncturist and a writer, don't take a stand on the efficacy of a specific treatment (e.g., urine therapy) but recommend sources for more information. The only drawback is the absence of complete citations in the bibliography. Useful as a ready reference, this book can also be read front to back; highly recommended for academic and public libraries.
