PUBLISHED BY EQUINOX PRESS

Alternative Medicine Online

"The most effective way to start making sense of the vast array of information on the World Wide Web is to have someone sit beside you, transmit their enthusiasms and their irritations, and guide you through. This book provides that experience - it is a provocative companion to alternative medicine information on the Internet, witty and wise, and eminently practical. In this slim volume, Ralph Moss has captured the essence of surfing the Web." --Jackie Wootton, M.Ed., managing editor, Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, January, 1998

" A pre-scrutinized, time-saving sampler of what's out there that's good....Ralph Moss, Ph.D. has written another winner, his 9th, this time on a passion close to his heart: alternative medicine online....What's well worth the $12.95 price is Moss's running commentary, explicit at times, implicit at others, about what makes a good site worth watching on the Internet...I thoroughly enjoyed Moss's book and will count it among the few that I won't even consider loaning out to (derelict, non-book-returning) friends....An accurate, handy guide to some of the best offerings." --C. Barba in Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients, Jan. 1998.

"Alternative Medicine Online is an excellent guide for Internet savvy practitioners and clients who seek to learn more about alternative therapies. The witty, thoughtful descriptions of these 68 Internet locations are full ov very useful information, even for the unfortunate who cannot access them on a computer." --Lynn Keegan, RN, PhD, University of Texas in Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine, March, 1998.

Questioning Chemotherapy

"Questioning Chemotherapy is a masterpiece of global importance in the history of medicine. It provides a very simple, clear and indisputable panorama of facts. It is recommended reading for every doctor and in particular for every oncologist...Questioning Chemotherapy is a superb oeuvre opening the gateway for a more humane, more efficacious, and far less expensive therapy of cancer in the future."
—Hans Nieper, M.D., Hannover, Germany; Past President, The German Society of Oncology

"An authoritative and comprehensive critique, Questioning Chemotherapy is uniformly fair." —Irwin D. Bross, Ph.D., former director of biostatistics, Roswell Park Memorial Institute for Cancer Research, Buffalo, N.Y.

"This is an excellent book written by an outstanding journalist. It contains a wealth of information both on the effects and the side-effects of chemotherapy and on the current state of research. Being committed to truth and not to wishful thinking, its conclusions may be sobering, but to know them is definitely in the interest of the patients." —Ulrich Abel, Ph.D., Biostatistician, Heidelberg/Mannheim Cancer Center, Germany

"I think that Questioning Chemotherapy should be required reading for all medical, surgical, and radiation oncologists. My admiration for Moss's energy, scholarship, and courage in writing this book!" —M. Rigdon Lentz, M.D.

CURRENTLY OUT-OF-PRINT

The Cancer Syndrome

"This is a shocking, disturbing book, a muckraking book in the best sense, which should be widely read." —Baltimore Evening Sun (all emphases added)

"Moss is a very tough act. He delivers his argument with low-keyed logic and a slow, careful building-up of facts. It is this very calmness, ultimately, that gives his words their ring of commanding urgency. Riveting!" —Denver Post

"Exceptionally well-written....Highly recommended." —Library Journal
