Siegel, a New Haven surgeon, believes that the power of healing stems from the human mind and will, that his scalpel only buys time against cancer, and that self-love and determination are more important than choice of therapy. His philosophy has caused radical changes in his practice. Siegel recounts many arresting anecdotes: joyous stories of patients who survived against all odds, sad chronicles of those who seemingly gave up and assented to their own deaths. The author's credentials make this one of the more plausible books on the mind-body connection. For most public libraries and holistic health collections. Judith Eannarino, George Washington Univ. Lib., Washington, D.C.

I'm sure some of Dr. Siegel's colleagues think he's a "nut case." I think he's spot on. I'm eager to read his other books. And, by the way, I learned yesterday that I'm cancer-free for now. Treatment #6 just took a little longer to do it's job. PTL.
I have now been a healthcare worker for well over 30 years, and I am seeing a resurgence of this attitude among institutions. Today's idea is to see the "patient" as a "customer" and to sell fear, (as I see it). We've turned back to encouraging passivity. The lifesaving measures for you or your loved one may be inside the walls of a healthcare facility, or maybe not. ASK QUESTIONS! On the other hand, that alternative practitioner could be preying upon the uninformed. ASK QUESTIONS.
What I see as important about what Bernie is saying is that you must find out how you "see it", rather than buying whatever we (mainstream or alternative) have to sell you. The best way to survive the medical maze is to participate in your recovery, in your very life. Your specific answers are not here, but ways to seek them are indeed inside this volume.
Bernie's writing is enlightening and positive, though not in a simplistic "put on a smile" way. I believe this is a must read for those living with cancer and for their families.
A supposedly scientific study stated that positivity does not statistically improve survival rates. Who gives a damn? I, personally, would rather have a short, happy life than a long, miserable one. When I come near death, joy is what I want for myself and for my family.
She still talks about how very important this book was to her healing. Since that time, we have sent this book to every friend who has been struggling especially with cancer. Dr. Siegel boosts one's positive approach to healing through medical treatments for serious illness. I love this book and though it was written in the 80's it is still so important today; so important that I was horrified to find that the oncologists we met had never heard of Dr. Siegel or read his book. I told all of them that it was malpractice to have skipped the education that Dr. Siegel provides.
