For clinics or practitioners interested in stocking copies for patients, you can buy wholesale from Manchester Acupuncture Studio @ $5.00/copy plus shipping with the purchase of 5 or more copies. Link here and leave us a request message.  (Proceeds from the sale of each book through our clinic will be invested into CAN/POCA for future projects.)Amazon.com also carries copies for sale @ $8.00/copy for the general public or purchases of less than 5 books.

Sweet Resource!

Thanks so much Andy & team.  This will be good for newly licensed punks too…...to help us be a little more prepared when responding to all kinds of ‘what did you just ask me facial expression’ questions.

Jade - only for wholesale pricing.
Shauna - that’s *just* what I was hoping to hear.

and thanks Bonny.

Bravo!

Hey, would it help you more to  have us buy it now or to wait and buy it on Amazon?  Cuz we’re going to buy a bunch and one way might benefit you more than another.

 

And Congratulations!  And Thank you!  And now go do something FUN with your free time!!

so sweet

It is to our and CAN’s financial benefit for you to buy directly from MAS, not Amazon - as they take a big cut of each book sold - even at a higher price.So, Julia shall I reserve your 15 50 copies for shipment next week?

thanks Andy…

though I’ve devised some of my own “clever” answers, I think my patients may like yours better.  And thanks for giving CAN some of your hard earned profits.  You will be getting my order very soon, 20 to start.

Thanks very much, Family.

Please do let me know what your patients think.  I’d imagine we can add a few questions to the mix for the next version…

What is the suggested retail

What is the suggested retail price?  If Amazon is offering it for $8, it probably costs another $4 to ship it.  That’s where they get you.

I noticed that WCA no longer

I noticed that WCA no longer sell “WCA for Patients.”  Do you encorporate any of that stuff into your book.  It’s good resource and someone in our clinic was asking about buying her own copy and couldn’t find it.

SRP is really up to you.

The retail price has been left open-ended on purpose.

In terms of WCA’s Little Red Book (which is no longer available), the info in this book intersects with it for sure -  but the format is very different and streamlined.

Well done!

Thanks for writing this book.  I received my copy (plus a few more to gift to current acu students) and busted right through it.  The text is conversational, simple and easy to understand.  The theory and ‘woo woo-iness’ is kept to an absolute minimum.  While I was in school, I was keenly aware that what I was learning could not just be regurgitated back to patients.  I always had my ‘translate for normal people’ conversation happening in the back of my mind.  I truly appreciate the honest acknowledgement that there’s so much we still don’t know about acupuncture and it’s mechanisms.  Seems hard for many practitioners to admit they don’t know something or everything.  This is nicely balanced with your clinical observations and results by doing thousands of treatments.  I bet your patients value your frank honesty and allow the needles do the talking for you.

Thanks Andy, punks & patients at MAS!
