Here is a book in the alternative medicine field in which the inventor of the method is more interesting than the system he devised. Dr. Milton Trager is the inventor of "Tragerwork," a bodywork technique that cannot easily be defined. A Trager practitioner feels how a client is holding his or her body and applies various movements to loosen stiff joints and muscles. Before going to medical school at the age of 42, Trager had been a postal worker, an actor, a boxer, and an acrobat. Calling his technique "beach acrobatics" and "mentastics" (mental gymnastics), Trager developed his approach by observing himself and others running at the beach. In this biography, Liskin, a Trager practitioner and assistant professor of clinical family medicine at the University of Southern California School of Medicine, describes Trager's struggle in getting this method of massage accepted by mainstream medicine. Liskin makes no sensational claims about his approach and in fact describes Trager in his opening chapter as a man in his mid-eighties using a walker in a retirement facility. Still, his book tells a fascinating story. For alternative medicine collections.?Natalie Kupferberg, Ferris State Univ. Lib., Big Rapids, Mich.
