ON RALPH W. MOSS'S BOOKS
PUBLISHED BY EQUINOX PRESS
"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.

research intersect has gained fresh interest in the age of AIDS....A
classic exposé." Library Journal

historical prescience." The Choice

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."

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

sense, which should be widely read." Baltimore Evening
Sun (all emphases added)

carefully cites sources as he assembles documentation that adds up
to a blistering attack." Publishers Weekly
