Long-term lung cancer survivor Anderson (The Cancer Conqueror) believes that wellness and illness are not just conditions experienced by individuals but are expressions of whole persons functioning in a range of contexts: in their society, among their co-workers, with their family and friends. His holistic approach to wellness addresses attitudes and core beliefs, vocation and emotion, as well as physical habits and nutrition. The advice is sound and sometimes unexpected: "stress is to be not only expected but preferred.... The problem isn't stress, it's toxic stress." Despite the rigid connotation of the title, these "laws" are generous and encouraging, reflecting Anderson's accessible presentation of material in aphoristic, anecdotal chapters. This inspirational guide sometimes lacks subtlety, but it doesn't harangue and is filled with inspiring verbal snapshots of people whose lives have been enriched by adopting the practices and beliefs explicated here.
