Osteopathic Life Clinic Book Review


A definitive biography on Dr. A.T Still and the beginning of Osteopathy by John Lewis

A definitive biography on Dr. A.T Still and the beginning of Osteopathy by John Lewis

Andrew Taylor Still had been a medical doctor for ten years
when a devastating personal tragedy convinced him to stop
prescribing the crude drugs of his day and seek a more
effective method of practising medicine. Believing there
must be a better way of healing the sick than introducing
toxic substances into the body, he embarked on a lifelong
quest to decipher the riddles of health and disease, life and
death. Combining the latest scientific knowledge with the
revolutionary intuition that the body innately contains all the
remedies needed for curing, he developed a drugless
method of healing effective across the whole disease
This is the inspirational story of a visionary, nonconformist
scientist, ‘the man who saw the truth, who had the mind to
conceive it, the indomitable will and courage to put it over in
the face of bitter opposition, poverty and social ostracism,
and an abiding faith in its ultimate triumph.’
‘It’s very, very good. A good read, well written, with an extraordinary amount of detail, and it encourages me to be a
proper osteopath.’  Christine Conroy.
‘I thoroughly enjoyed it. Beautifully written. Congratulations on a fantastic book. It is truly inspiring. It raises lots of
questions. Let’s hope it produces a groundswell of osteopaths wanting to get back to our roots. I for one want to Dig
On.’ Philip Roe.
‘I love the photographs, the cover and all the care I know that you have taken to honor this amazing gift of a being
who has given this earth so much!’ Jennifer Dulin (USA).
‘If it were a mainstream novel it would be described as a page-turner.’  Warwick Downes.
‘This book joins a select few that in my opinion are a manifesto for twenty-first century osteopathy. The book
challenged me to redouble my efforts to think, feel and practice. It is timely, as we face utter dilution from the
mediocrity of our profession, at stake is our identity and the very soul of osteopathy.’ Richard Metliss (Canada).
‘Without doubt it’s the best thing I have seen written about Still.’ Robert Cartwright.
‘I can’t recommend it more highly. It is a fabulous book and everyone should read it!’  Kathryn Bourne.
