I bought this book hoping to use it as an adjunct to my work with a naturopathic physician. Unfortunately, it's more of a basic vitamin primer and less of a diet/menu food book than I was looking for. Much of the information I knew from other sources, and didn't find anything else that grabbed me in the content. I can't really recommend it to anyone unless they're looking for the basic foundation and underpinnings of naturopathic treatment.

As far as I know, this guy actually had no formal medical training as a Naturopathic Physician. After reading the book, I did a little research and it looks like he was an MD and a PhD. So it is not surprising that we are as disappointed as we are.... Does anyone know otherwise?

Lots of basic info on vitamins , dosages, and case stories, written by a practising "house" doctor. Although the title says "Naturopathic", Hoffer was more of an "Orthomolecular" doctor, meaning using vitamins in large doses to cure various diseases which are possibly clinical deficiencies. Very interesting case histories with Niacin (Vit. B3).
