This book offers a thorough description of the history of homeopathy, and a glimpse into its future. The author faces contentious issues directly, and questions existing standards with rigour. It leaves the reader impatient to discover what gems the remaining six books in the series will contain. Dr Isaac Golden, Australia Al Gray navigates the often turbulent waters of different homeopathic gurus in a refreshing way. No doubt those whose systems he describes will find a sympathetic yet critical examination of their approaches. This is a breath of fresh air, it is not the voice of the apologist or sycophant but rather a considered critical examination of some of the greatest influences upon modern homeopathic practice. Susanna Shelton, NZ The art of taking the case is much neglected in homeopathy but certainly not by Alastair C. Gray. This encyclopaedic approach to the subject is a major contribution to homeopathic literature. Dr Brian Kaplan, UK If I had this book during my days as a homeopathy student, I would not have taken such a muddled path to acquire my homeopathic case taking skills! This book on Homeopathic Case taking by Alastair Gray is going to be on the compulsory books listed for my BHMS students. Dr Suriyakantun Osman, Malaysia.
