'a fine eclectic anthology'   (Dr Jim Leavesley in Australian Doctor) 

Verbal Medicine is a quick-acting, long-lasting literary elixir ideal for those suffering from a deficiency of the art of medicine. 

Verbal Medicine was WINNER of the ACT WRITING AND PUBLISHING AWARDS (POETRY) for 2007. 

Twenty-one poets, one hundred poems, a historical sketch and select bibliography record a blossoming of poetry concerned to locate the human firmly at the centre of a clinical world that often has other priorities.
