This page is dedicated to knowledge sharing. It’s the only good that multiplies when you divide it… Ignorance is the cradle of fear, hatred and violence. Openness to new horizons is always rewarding. Over the years, the following books have taught me a lot and brought me a lot, both in my life as an osteopath practitioner and in my personal life. Today, I share with you my favorites. The subjects are as diverse as they are varied: health and well-being of course, but also philosophy, society, osteopathy, personal development and cooking are in the spotlight! The links will facilitate the task but you can also find all these books at your bookseller. Happy reading!
