Dr. Kelly is a medical doctor that combines the best of Western and Eastern techniques. He is not your average General Practitioner, his knowledge stretches far beyond that.
Living in beautiful New Zealand with his wife Trish and their three children, Dr. Kelly is not limited to his medical practice. He is a talented musician, composer and singer. His love of music has led to him recording not one but three music CD’s. Robin has appeared on local radio and television shows and has just completed writing his first musical. This author is not just multi-facetted but multi-talented as well.
I found it difficult to place “The Human Antenna” into any square peg; it just didn’t conform to the norm. At first, it gives the reader a bit of a background on the author and his medical expertise. Then it leads down the path of exploration. The book goes into Dr. Kelly’s interest in acupuncture and the healing powers of the human body. He explains his fascination with the Eastern techniques of healing and how he vehemently began to learn them.
Dr. Kelly does not stop with just explaining the healing qualities of acupuncture. He continues to describe how so many things intertwine to cure an ailing human. Some of the points covered in the book relate to the body’s DNA, how our cells speak to each other, how they emit electronic impulses and signals and how they receive such signals. This whole process is detailed to such a degree as to include the quantum physics explanations and comparisons. These explanations were accompanied by illustrations and diagrams that helped the novice understand how everything is interrelated.
“The Human Antenna” was a very complex and detailed educational experience. With so much to digest, the author was quite thorough in his attempt to educate the novice. His excellent references and well-documented bibliography enhanced the reader’s adventure into this very complex and amazing field. I enjoyed “The Human Antenna” very much and gave it a well deserved A. The presentation, the quality of the book and the excellent writing, make it worth the money.
