Humor is a great healer. After our deepest tragedies our best jokes usually arise. So many body repair processes are activated by humor. Rarely does a collection of stories illustrate this theme as much as this book does. Dr. McDowall describes the funny side of his practice with stories about his patients, their fears, pains, spouses, worries, anxieties as well as the lessons they learn from them. Chiropractors are often the last healers called upon to help after all else has failed. Such tension with patient communication at this stage of pain causes incredible frustration for both the doctor and the patient. It is this environment that creates the out bursts described in this book. If you have ever wondered what people say when they hear that first creak of their bones during treatment or the wonder of how their body responds and changes without painkillers then this book will surprise you. The cartoon sketches included add another dimension to the book that shows the author can laugh at himself. It is said that a profession comes of age when it develops a sense of humor. No other book takes you into the intimacy of a chiropractor's practice like this one.
