About The Editor
"Rachel Brooks, M.D., has edited a remarkable collection of Becker’s best writings and lectures. . . . She has artfully brought together the essence of Becker’s philosophic vision within the greater field of osteopathy.
Life in Motion is one of the top five books that, in my opinion, must be included in an osteopathic library. However [it] must not be purchased and utilized as a reference text. You are obliged to read this book cover-to-cover and then re-read it periodically to gain deeper and richer insights.
. . . For those who have never studied directly with Dr. Becker, this book gives us the teachings of a master in the comfort of our living room. Becker’s ability to see beyond codes, formulas, and dogma gives us a guide to expanding our own work as osteopaths."
