Five Stars Fantastic volume of excellent explanation. "first 2 years in one book" according to original thinker. this book basically reviews everything you would have learned in the first 2 years of OMM lab at the chicago school. if you focus mainly on musculoskeletal-based OMT, then this book can be helpful. however, the kuchera & kuchera book is the real deal if you want to use OMT for systemic/"internal medicine" diseases. however, if you really want to treat the whole person, then check out anything by sutherland or "anatomy of potency" by nicholas handoll..

It covers the treatment of all types of patients of all ages with a broad spectrum of clinical conditions. It is a truly useful reference. One that I find use for daily.
