    this is a very good book for introducing body/mind health issues. it covers a lot of territory. only thing is, is the references. the references used in this book are mostly from “pop” magazines such as psychology today, time, u.s. world, readers digest (!), etc. i personally do not consider these publications too legit, but that is my opinion. i got this book through the local library, i would recommend you do the same to see if you want to shell out the big bucks. or get it used, there are a lot of copies for sale.

    The most fascinating information I’ve ever read, July 13, 2007

    Yes this is a very long and intense book. And costly. Covers topics from how emotions can harm you to how simple things like prayer can help you. Each chapter has numerous footnotes referenced with the information for the various studies on which the information is based.

    I have lent it out to family and friends and it truly contains unknown and not mainsteam health information. I do believe our emotions are largely at work in our overall well-being, and this book cemented that belief for me and enlightened me in other ways.

    excellent resource, May 2, 2007
    By 

    This book is a great resource for a wide range of mind/body health issues. Although there are some sources/references that aren’t as “legit” (previous reviewer’s comment), there a ton of scholarly articles. And this book compiles most of the good literature and research that exists on mind/body health topics.
