Summary
  • The story of a recovery from a crippling disease and the physician patient partnership that beat the odds by using the patient's own capabilities
  • The basic theme of this book is that every person must accept a certain measure of responsibility for his or her own recovery from disease or disability. This notion of patient responsibility is not new, of course, but the general philosophy behind the notion has seldom been stated better than in this book. Though the author is a layman, his ideas have achieved wide acceptance by the medical profession. His perceptions about the nature of stress and about the ability of the human mind to mobilize the body's capacity to combat illness are in accord with important findings at leading medical research centers. - Introduction
Summary
Tells of how engaging to the fullest a patient's own capabilities for overcoming illness resulted in a recovery from a crippling and supposedly irreversible disease
