The book's huge appeal is that time and space are a fine line that merge and can be shaped at will by those that have seen men fly to the moon. Medical changes in the body can be delivered by small changes and this may not be understood in many places in the world. I own more than one of Larry Dossey's books and recommend them all.
Your favorite astronaut would explain that flying up into outer space does not make time change, rather the view from space and your relationship to the universe will remove any doubt to the nature of the cosmic challenge which exists in not believing that men can change the world.
Decide the fate that flies into your life each day as you wake.

Despite this critique, however, Dossey does present several interesting arguments in favor of his approach, and some fascinating case studies, including one involving a psychic police officer suffering from stress-related illness, and some interesting observations involving the health of people with "type A" personalities and worldviews. Dossey demonstrates a mastery of physics uncommon among individuals outside the field, and does an excellent job of explaning the physical thought of Prigogine, Bohm, Heisenberg, Einstein, and Bohr, as well as the mathematical proofs of Kurt Godel.
"Space, Time, and Medicine" isn't beach reading, doesn't present any revolutionary new data, and won't shake the ground beneath your feet. But if you're a physician interested in following up on potentially effective "alternative" approaches, or a layman with an interest in how the "new physics" relate to your state of being- you can do far worse than read this book.
