    I read Osteopathic Medicine: A Reformation in Progress. It's a relatively short book and easy read as well as interesting. This was the only book I read...I did read part of the Gevitz book a while ago, and although interesting, I found it to be dry in some parts.

    I also did alot of internet searches as well as read as many posts as possible on SDN from people who have successfully gained acceptance into med school.

    Hope that helps...Oh, I also read a very interesting book on health care called Epidemic of Care.

    The DOs by Norman Gevitz gives the best history of osteopathic medicine. It also includes a lot of relevant history about medicine in general in this country. They just released an updated edition to this book, first published in the early eighties.

    I agree with wannabeDO. This was great book. This and Osteopathic Medicine: A Reformation in Progress were both suggestions from the DO that I interviewed with so he could write my LOR. I bought both of them from amazon.com
