We know hope impacts one's emotions. But it also affects our physical being. I bought this book to learn about the BIOLOGY of hope. Written by an oncologist and citing actual patient cases (mostly cancer), Dr. Groopman explores the role of hope in fighting disease and healing.

The latter part of the book interested me the most. It documents the positive physiological responses evoked by hope. Top scientists are interviewed who study the biological link between emotion and biological responses. The most relevant studies on the subject are reviewed. We learn that there's more to hope than we thought. Hope triggers biochemical changes. Biochemical changes can fight disease.

Dr Groopman shows how hope, belief and expectations can alter the course of our lives, and even of our physical body. Good news for any patient dealing with a serious health condition.

We recommend this book to readers on our website, Atrial Fibrillation: Resources for Patients, A-Fib.com on our 'A-Fib Positive Thoughts & Prayer Group' page (http://a-fib.com/a-fib-prayer-group/).
