Read Me:

In need of a mind blow? Here it is. Fadiman's ethnographic, historical, and journalistic combo will leave you questioning biomedical practitioners, the significance of ethnomedicine and alternative methods of healing, non-western concepts of health and illness, and the history of the Hmong and their contributions to America. "The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down" is disturbing, enlightening, and unforgettable. I love medical anthropology.
