This nasty rag is supposedly about the exploits of the mentally-ill Fritz Klenner, son of pioneering orthomolecular clinician F. W. Klenner, MD. Yet it is mostly guesswork and hearsay, stitched together with newspaper-clipping quality journalism and detective-novel gore and intrigue.
Bledsoe aims several vicious attacks against the unorthodox but highly successful treatment protocols of the elder Klenner, emphasizing his few failures to help patients. He discredits, ignores or deprecates his many successes, portraying Dr. Klenner as some quack dispensing useless if not harmful treatments.
There is no compassion here for the ill-fated son, who evidently descended into paranoid schizophrenia; nor for the heartbreak of the father who saw his parental hopes and pride shattered. Other[s] ... who dismisses Fritz as "crazy", "evil" or, charitably, "unbalanced", fail to understand the extend of his mental illness. Nor does Bledsoe even scrape the surface of trying to fathom it or draw parallels to other psychiatric cases. ...P>Interested people should find out more about Dr. Klenner's fascinating life work, and pass on the lurid sensationalism and scandal-mongering pandered by this "journalist".
Read instead the books by Abram Hoffer, Carl C. Pfeiffer, Allan Cott, Linus Pauling, Irwin Stone and others (most available here on Amazon or by web search) to find out what Dr. Frederick W. Klenner was really up to, and how he was doing it decades before others followed his example.
As for "Bitter Blood", it's a tosser IMO. Better detective reading can be found almost anywhere, especially where it doesn't try to mis- or under-represent facts.
