Excerpt: This book provides a philosophical and theoretical overview of all 44 Green Books, written from a historical perspective. The book addresses many questions about Green Books, such as missing numbers in the series, duplicated numbers in the series, as well as content of each book ... [This book] is important for the profession at this time. Too many articles in the literature are dismissive of the original chiropractic paradigm without demonstrating a depth of knowledge about the history and the ideas. This overview of the books offers the profession a jumping off point to refresh and renew discussions about professional identity, the value of history, and the future direction of the profession. The book also offers a way for chiropractors to anchor their own library to a long tradition of Green Book collecting and enjoy one of the pleasures of being a chiropractor.
