Editorial Reviews

Review

"Talk about the ultimate expert. The author of this guide to healing after injury or illness is a Harvard doctor who specializes in rehabilitative medicine and a cancer survivor… Silver is chatty and upbeat, peppering her text with fun quotes.And she ends the empowering book by repeating a line from Winston Churchill, Never, never, never give up." – Booklist

"Kathleen sat in a cold metal chair in an ugly and unfriendly waiting room. The news eventually came to her—"you have breast cancer." She then endured the same irony as many women before her. She felt fine but knew there was something terrible going on in her body. After the surgery and chemotherapy, she felt mutilated and not fine. Her oncologist told her to get on with her life. At that time, Kathleen entered "the Healing Zone," a place where many people get stuck and are left on their own to fend for themselves. Kathleen is the middle name of Dr Julie Silver, Assistant Professor of Physical Medicine and rehabilitation at Harvard Medical School. Her own experiences in this book provide an encouraging guide to anyone who has survived a serious illness or injury. The theme of the book is that we human beings are very resilient once we set our minds to something, and that includes healing… Dr Silver’s very readable book includes graphs and charts to help people focus on meeting the goal of the best healing possible. This encouraging book is not about just being sick or injured but about living. I encourage medical writers not only to read the book but to secure a copy for themselves and their friends. The strategies presented here can help all of us reach the best possible health to live life to the fullest." – ON THE BOOKSHELF, Evelyn B. Kelly, Ph.D.

I really enjoyed this book and it gave me a lot to think about but in terms of detailed info there wasn't really much that was new to me. However, there were some parts of the book that were exceptionally useful. For instance, there was a questionnaire to fill out in regard to fatigue that was helpful to give to my MD about my activity levels, sleep patters, medications, etc. The book also served as a good reminder to slow down and let oneself heal. The parts that were not new to me had to do with exercise, rest, diet, medications and supplements. Since I have done a lot of reading about my chronic illness I did not find any of this information to add to my knowledge base. If you are looking for detailed information about things specific to your illness/condition you will probably not find them in this book. However, I highly recommend reading this book as it does serve a good reminder of what you should or should not be doing while trying to heal, and it may give additional info to consider while you are healing. Overall it was a good read.

This is a good book for people who have very little general health knowledge. If you have paid attention to basic principles of health--nutrition and exercise--you don't need it. Otherwise great.
