So I tried glucosamine and chondroitin and stayed fairly close to their overall program. Two years have passed and although I cannot say for certain, it is my belief that the supplements are valuable. At any rate, my arthritic knee is much improved.
In the follow-up book, the authors give information on other treatments.
I have to say that I think they've done a positive service in writing these two books. The information about healing in general and about prevention and about the positive effects of exercise and attitude are worthwhile. The authors may have made megabucks (or maybe they didn't), but I don't feel they ripped anybody off, on the contrary. I am happy to be positive even though I still think "cure" is probably too strong a word for what their program can do, although I only have my own experience to go on. Their reports of the double blind tests that have been conducted are good, but a long way from convincing proof that glucosamine and chrondoitin and exercises can cure osteoarthritis.

1. The work is obviously padded - perhaps to justify its high price per unit volume (pun intended).
2. Descriptions purporting to be `scientific' or `medical' are in the best Sunday supplement style. That may not make them invalid. The writers' audience is probably not well educated and could not follow a logical scientific argument. For my part, I would have appreciated seeing `before' and `after' microphotographs (using, perhaps, arthroscope pictures) to show whether or not there was in fact regeneration of cartilage in the affected joints.
3. Results of their studies never explain the apparent improvement on the part of those receiving placebos.
4. The `reports of case studies' are mostly:
i. Anecdotal, i. e. `I took a pill and felt better'.
ii. Cases involving younger people - younger than I am now; younger than I shall ever be again, by thousands and thousands of years - who were inordinately active before getting osteoarthritis, and want nothing more than to be inordinately active again. They would be more likely to resist the ailment in the first place, and better able to recover, in the second.
iii. Lacking in hard evidence (v. 2, supra).
5. There is a good deal of the current health-fascist emphasis on diet and exercise. Too much comment, that is, and too little proof. Fads `heal', sometimes; so do placebos (v. 3, supra), sometimes; so does faith, sometimes. The human mind, if I may be excused the oxymoron, is a strange thing indeed.
6. There is an over-supply of the current New Age Feelgood puckumpucky in it.
7. Despite these carping comments, there is still an off chance that the compounds might work. If, as is maintained by the authors, chondraitin sulfate and glucosamine sulfate help rebuild cartilage in damaged joints, it could be worth a try. Absence of pain is an indicator of something; whether or not it is an indicator of healing or just a masking of symptoms I cannot say from reading the book.
8. Despite being a skeptic of the first order I have tried, if only for a week, the condiments proffered by the authors, as I am fortunate enough to know the proprietor of a health-food store. I cannot say that there was an improvement; I cannot say that there was not. The joint pain in my left hip is reduced, perhaps; the muscle pain in that portion of my anatomy is still with me. The quadricep, you see, is somewhat atrophied due to a deep vein thrombus in that particular gam. If it isn't one thing, it's six - old age ain't for sissies. I am tired enough of pain to try anything, once - I would even eat brussels sprouts if they eased the pain. I shall continue the treatment for another couple of weeks, endeavour to hobble about enough to help that muscle, and report further.
