Chicken Soup for the Chiropractic Soul is a very welcome addition to the Chiropractic Soup series.
How do I get my patients to listen to me without making them like failures? How do I discipline them when they won't listen? Should I yell at them? Can I be subtle? Who is the captain of their souls? Me? You?

A highwayman in a white coat? Yes, perhaps sometimes, yet most doctors care genuinely about their patients' welfare.

Do you have a great educational Chiropractic book that you dip into every week? Share it! We have some truly great Chiropractic writers who sweated blood and tears to bring us their thoughts, and many of us have never heard of them.
