This book breaks down the principles of the mind body connection so the lay person can understand what otherwise are complex investigations. As a Chiropractor I was given the insight I needed to make this mind body connection and has influenced my relationship with the people I treat. This is also a must read for followers of Wilhelm Reich or Alexander Lowen, who were some of the original researchers of this deep and insightful contribution to medicine and body work.

Format:Paperback
Written in 1950, this was a precursor to the valid field of Psychosomatic Medicine. Yet this volume is of historical interest at best; even then, not of much value. Hundreds of books written prior to 1980 were subsumed and converged into the flurry of very good nutritional self-help reference books such as those by James Balch. Prescription for Nutritional Healing, Fifth Edition

The only possible value I can see for this book now is Alexander's very brief and therefore pretty superficial 45 case studies; which, while they remain articulate and clear, are replicated in dozens of other books and hold no surprises.

Of modern Psychosomatic Medicine literature, books by Michael Lincoln remain the standard

A true classic on which much new research is based. If you are interested in the field of psychoneuroimmunology, you must have this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Professional reference May 11, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I use this book as a professional reference and have, therefore, not sat down to read it all in one sitting. I am familiar with theories of psychosomatic psychopathology. I ordered this book via Amazon through another seller and it came to me in excellent condition.
