    Hi, I am applying to DO school and would like to know any good books on osteopathy that is interesting and informative. I have all ready read the book by Norman Gevitz, so I want to expand my knowledge base of osteopathy beyond that. Thanks for any suggestions.

    You might try "The Difference a D.O. Makes" by Bob Jones. This is a book written by a lay person for the lay person. It breaks down what osteopathy is and its history and gives some history of some of the problems in the 50s and 60s. Very informative. Hope you find it useful.

    "The D.O.'s: Osteopathic Medicine in America" by Norman Gevitz was good - pretty good historical account of how D.O.'s have evolved. Got it on Amazon.

    Here's a link where you can buy it. I don't believe it is readily available elsewhere.
