Seriously?? One wonders how, in a society that values the scientific method and rigorous testing of drugs and other medical techniques, claptrap like this continues to exist.

This is not an objective examination of whether lumps of minerals placed on your body can heal you. This book starts with the assumption that you are already sold on this nonsensical idea. As the book says, it is about "the ancient art of laying on stones", but cannot and does not provide any basis for believing that rocks have magical powers. This book has less reality in it than a D.C./Marvel comic book or the song "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer".

Seriously... the F.D.A. exists for a reason. "Western" medicine isn't accepted merely because of a prejudice of Western civilization for medicines developed in & by the west. "Western" mainstream medicine has been objectively proven to work.

Don't place your trust in this quackery. Compare, for example, the mountain of evidence supporting the value of aspirin and colchicine (anti-gout real medicine). Compare this to the wild claims this book makes for supernatural, superstitious silliness revolving around simple lumps of minerals. Among the list of dangerous claims is that pretty rocks simply dug out of a quarry can cause self-healing, psychic protection, teach you, and be programmed by you.

Seriously... this author and publisher should be sued if anyone is foolish enough to use this quackery instead of real medicine, and thereby comes to harm by illness progressing unchecked.

The only worthwhile reason to buy this book is if you spot it in a used book store (so profits don't get back to these unworthy author+publishers) and thereby keep it out of the hands of someone who might be tempted to believe in this quackery.
