From Library Journal
The editors and their associates at the Mind/Body Medical Institute of the New England Deaconess Hospital and Harvard Medical School hope to make their "experience in treating chronic and stress-related symptoms available to those not able to attend" their Boston-based behavioral medicine clinics. In 24 chapters, the reader is "introduced to the essentials of healthy lifestyle, including the relaxation response, nutrition, exercise, and stress management." The workbook format includes short patient histories, space for write-in exercises and personal data, charts, and diagrams. Overall, this material is also covered in greater detail and a better format in the Wellness Encyclopedia ( LJ 2/15/91); the more personalized log in The Wellness Book makes it most appropriate for individual purchase.-James Swanton, Albert Einstein Coll. of Medicine, New York
