Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Fresh from her appearance in the 2004 film What the Bleep do we Know!?, scientist and author Pert (Molecules of Emotion) offers stories from her life's work-promoting her Peptide T therapy for AIDS patients and her research on the "bodymind" connection-as the springboard to a confident journey into the far reaches of healing, spirituality and medicine. Structured like a tour diary, the text includes the content of various presentations and lectures given by Pert as well as what she learned before and after each. Each chapter centers on a different presentation and a different audience, addressing the challenge of her title from a number of angles, including "Toxicity, Mood, and Food" in Tuscon, "Self-Esteem, Multiple Personalities, and Forgiveness" in Minneapolis and "Energy Medicine, Coherence, and Connection" in Santa Barbara. Among the familiar (quitting your addiction to sugar, treating yourself with self-affirmations), Pert introduces lots of far-out but practical concepts many readers may never have considered (such as one's unique "money personality" and the meaning of seemingly random "synchronicities"). Warm, accessible and personal, Pert's writing can jar when alternating between conversational story-telling and jargon-studded technical information, but she keeps things moving with plenty of narrative and self-revelation. Though notably lacking an index, the work is well-researched and should hold great interest for anyone who is interested in healing, new age or the esoteric corners of mind-body science.

"Everyone's so in the dark when it comes to feeling good, whether it involves chronic illness, pain, aging, depression, or just flat-out stress. In fact, stress is the new medical word for feeling lousy, and reducing it is the new holy grail, what everyone wants. People know that they don't feel good, and they're not getting answers about how to feel better from their conventional doctors." - From the book

Featured in the indie film What the Bleep Do We Know!?, pharmacologist Candace Pert, Ph.D. discovered the opiate receptor and authored the book Molecules of Emotion. In her newest book Everything You Need to Know to Feel Go(o)d, Dr. Pert synthesizes her knowledge of peptides ("molecules of emotion"), the psychosomatic nature of the bodymind, and her personal journey from traditional, governmental scientist to a (self-proclaimed) "New Age diva".

The reason peptides are molecules of emotion, says Dr. Pert, is because substances that are found in the emotion center of the brain are also found throughout the entire body. While the popular Western model propagated both the myth of the blood/brain barrier, as well as the idea that the mind is in the brain, studies have shown that peptides (and hormones) are found in the brain, the organs, and bone marrow. For example, insulin is found in the brain, not just the pancreas--which opens up inquiry into whether diabetics could perhaps generate insulin from the brain center. And, because "brain chemicals" are found in cells throughout the body, Dr. Pert asserts that the "mind" is actually our entire body--which is why bodywork modalities such as massage, chiropractics, and craniosacral therapy are so effective at resolving emotional issues. After all, says Dr.

Where on earth did she get the title for this book? When her co-writer Nancy Marriott got into a discussion with her about the book having no direction other than being a dialogue about her travels and the many conferences she's spoken at I couldn't have agreed more. Dr. Pert informs us that eventually her co-writer saw that Dr. Pert was the one who really knew how to write the book. I was amazed that she needed to be informed by a "healer" that she had deep insecurity issues, I could have told her that after reading the first 100 pages of the book. How many times does she tell us she's a "diva", about the important people she's interacted with and always trying to impress us with how famous she's become after appearing in the movie "What the Bleep....!?"

She should have listened to Nancy Marriott and written a book with more information and less personal stories that try to impress the reader. Too much discussion on her Meditation CD and her work on Peptide T which makes the reader feel like they're reading an infomircial for her products and research.

While I do believe that she is very knowledgeable on her subject and has a lot of information to share, she does a very poor job of dispensing it in this particular book.

I couldn't put this book down and it's been a while since that happened. This book has a lot of great content to it (I was nervous by the simple sounding title that it woud be another fluffy feel good book where they tell you if you smile you'll feel good and you leave with no real new information). But Candace Pert doesn't play that fruit-tart game. A true scientist, she gives gives accurate and researched answers to many of the questions she's been asked over the many years from aspartame to releasing trauma through bodywork to peptide T for HIV. The book isn't a compilation of lists but weaves the information through in a narrative style so it's very enjoyable reading (as I said - it's the first book I really didn't want stop reading in a while). I first head about Candace through a friend who had her meditation/relaxation/feel good CD "Psychosomatic Wellness" so I bought it from her website too because my friend was so amazd by it -- and it is great! I was SO EXCITED when I read the part of the book that explained the science behind the CD!! I'm rambling now...but I just think this book is great! I highly recommend her CD too -- it's so effective (I don't know why Candace Pert doesn't have "Psychsomatic Wellness" on Amazon - but everyone should buy it because it's priceless and goes great with the book). Anyway, I hope this is helpful to some of you out there in InternetLand....

Format: Hardcover
I loved Dr. Pert's previous book, The Molecules of Emotion. I was thrilled to hear this new book was being released and couldn't wait to get a copy. The title of this book made bold promises, but I was disappointed to find that it failed miserably to deliver. I expected a book that would outline activities or exercises to practice the art and science of feeling good and finding one's self in the presence of God in a present-moment way. The book offered neither, but rather, rambled on and on, outlining Ms. Pert's own life's journey in an in-your-face sales-pitch "I got it, you should too" presentation that only flaunted, and failed to ever really teach.

Ms. Pert's discussions on dietary health and wholeness were limited and contradictory at best. If you want real data backed by science in this area, I suggest the writings of Dr. John McDougall (especially the McDougall Plan and The McDougall Program), John Robbins, and particularly T. Colin Campbell's China Study.

Little concrete information was really offered in the practice of "feeling good." If you want practical information and a firm plan that promises results in this area, Dr. Laurel Mellin's The Pathway does more than deliver on such promises.

Recovery from trauma was mentioned, but never really addressed in a practical manner. Dr. Peter A. Levine's Waking the Tiger and Healing Trauma give deep insights and practical attacks for freedom.

God was promised in the title, but barely even mentioned in the text of the book, most notably almost as an afterthought in the epilogue. Practitioners of energy healing arts were given far more press than was God.
