Publication Type Book Review
Abstract/Notes In this issue, Dr. Cooperstein will review Dr. David Byfield’s book on spinal manipulation.

Excerpt: The book is eloquent and easy to read. In fact, there are few books written in as entertaining a way about a subject that could be seen as quite dry. Not all readers will “get it,” but for those who do, there are many treasures to be found in the prose. For example, in describing side-posture manipulation, the authors write, “One of the most commonly observed mistakes by students is to rush this series of skills and maul the patient into submission.” Ah, how true that is, and how better to make the point? The irreverent and witty remarks that pepper the book might be missed by some but would be worth savoring by the many!
