This book provides us with practical advice about how to take a complete case in a wide range of clients. It is the first of a series of 6 volumes.
This book offers a thorough description of the history of homeopathy, and a glimpse into its future. The author faces contentious issues directly, and questions existing standards with rigour. It leaves the reader impatient to discover what gems the remaining six books in the series will contain.

Al Gray navigates the often turbulent waters of different homeopathic gurus in a refreshing way. No doubt those whose systems he describes will find a sympathetic yet critical examination of their approaches. This is a breath of fresh air, it is not the voice of the apologist or sycophant but rather a considered critical examination of some of the greatest influences upon modern homeopathic practice.

The art of taking the case is much neglected in homeopathy but certainly not by Alastair C. Gray. This encyclopaedic approach to the subject is a major contribution to homeopathic literature.
