“One of the striking features of this book is the empowering empathy with which Dr. Norman Rosenthal discusses the people with given health issues. It cannot but make the reader become more understanding of other humans and their anguish. In addition, there is all the neat science – explained simply yet not watered down to the degree of becoming trivial. Essentially, this is book about human condition in the modern world. But unlike the existentialists, Dr. Norman Rosenthal sees light at the end of the tunnel.”—Transcendental Meditation
“The book makes a useful contribution to understanding the mind-body relationship in holistic ways, advancing ongoing dialogue among clinicians and just plain folks about how to live more healthfully.”—Publishers Weekly
