Dr. Dominik Wujastyk of University College, London writes in his Foreward to the book: "...Vicki Pitman dives deep into the Greek tradition of Hippocrates, the father of Western medicine, to discover whether the roots of holism can be found there. If such roots can be found, then perhpas we can say that Modern Establishment Medicine has lost something important that it once had...Pitman's thesis is distnguished by several features: orginality, scholarly integrity, and accessibility. Perhaps the most important is its historical probity. Pitman grapples with the original texts of Greek and Indian medicine, refusing to simplify, refusing to take anybody' elses word for their meaning. In doing so Pitman has produced a study which is factually trustworthy, serious and true to the traditions in explores."
