Based on the existing research literature and empirical evaluation, this book sheds light on an industry that has long existed in the shadows. It answers questions that many of us have asked, and in doing so is an extremely useful work that should be read by anyone considering chiropractic treatment and others interested in better understanding health care. McNamara’s research-based approach is refreshing as he overcomes various obstacles in assembling a comprehensive account of an industry that has operated without much scrutiny.
— Ronald Burns, Texas Christian University
McNamara is a fine story teller, and in many ways, gives us a wealth of information on the scientific merits of chiropractic medicine. Even though we are left at times distressed by some of the findings, the book is compulsively engaging.
McNamara writes with lucidity, passion, and keen knowledge; he engages our collective conscience in a way that helps us understand the world of chiropractic medicine. This book is a dynamic study of a relatively unknown profession.
— Terry Williams, The New School
