The Difference a D.O. Makes: The Millennium Edition 

by Bob E. Jones, CAE
 


“This book is a tremendous first introduction for anyone wanting to gain a better understanding of the development and history of osteopathic medicine. It is an excellent source of information that informs the reader about the trials, tribulations and achievements of osteopathic physicians that have landed them where they are today.

“Written from a layperson's perspective, this book is a credible and accurate account of the osteopathic profession. It provides the reader with clear and concise reasons as to why a D.O. does make a difference. In turn, it unfolds a better understanding of differences between osteopathic medicine and its counterparts." - James E. Zini, DO, President of the AOA from 2001-2002
