Hey everyone, I'm certain many of you have read The D.O.'s: Osteopathic Medicine in America by Norman Gevitz and although being a little old (published in 1982) I heard it was pretty good. But my main question is, has anyone read Osteopathic Medicine: A Reformation in Progress by R. Michael Gallagher? I couldn't find any reviews on it. I just recently ordered both, and I was just wondering if I could get anyones opinions on either or. Thanks!

Reading "The D.O.'s" currently. I find it informational so far and well written, but I am only on about page 60 or so. It has taught me a lot of things that I didn't know before. Don't know about the other book.

I think this book touches many aspects of osteopathic medicine and keeps it short and sweet. I also think this book is a quick read for those who don't have much free time. I really recommend it. I read the Gevitz book and found it quite dry but very informative.
