Hi folks,
I’m working on getting Noodles listed with a few catalogues, and would love some updated reader comments from practitioners, students, patients.

—Remember how your mind was blown when you first read it?

—How it opened up new ways of seeing the whole acu/healthcare/community thing?

—Spoke to the values about access/healthcare/inclusion/social justice you felt deeply and you loved seeing so clearly articulated?

—Did it convince you to change your practice? Get more acupuncture as a patient? Give you hope as a student? Make you want to spread the word about the revolution?

a few sentences is plenty, with your name, title if you want (patient, student, practitioner), location.

AAAnd, you can always add to the comments already up on Amazon, Powells books, etc

so you can post here or send a message to me:

Yay Melissa that’s an awesome idea!!

“Noodles is a must read book for me as an acupuncturist. When I say must read, I mean must read and reread every week. It keeps me an understanding of what’s going on in my clinic while keeping a larger perspective of the role it plays in my community. It keeps me motivated and inspired to do acupuncture every time I read it!.”

I was unhappy practicing private room acupuncture and charging the market rate. When I read Acupuncture is Like Noodles, I laughed out loud many times with relief and joy that there was a way I could practice acupuncture that made so much more sense to me. Lisa is a superb writer, she has a way of presenting information so that anyone, coming from any point of view, will get it. Reading this book changed my life, it was a major turning point for me.
