  1. Hi Simon,
    I’m speechless and grateful that you amongst the very few are preserving and refining/evolving our collective knowledge and wisdom. Thank you, what a profound legacy! Exciting!!

  2. Simon, your ever-more-substantive body of work is one of the most amazing contributions to our profession that I have seen. The connection with the great thinkers (and doers) of the past is incredibly valuable. I hope the schools acquaint themselves with the history in a far more meaningful way, made possible because of your work, and integrate it into their curriculums. For the everyday chiropractor working away on his/her tables, these books are invaluable. Thankyou!

  3. Thank you so very much for this body of work. I shall look forward to many hours of delicious reading . Every adjustment I deliver stands on a foundation of chiropractic philosophy and these books will shine a clear light for those who are yet to understand the power of what they do in their everyday practice .
    Dr Suzi Hearn
