9780553012934: Anatomy of an Illness as Perceived by the Patient: Reflections on Healing and Regeneration

A special hardcover gift edition of the New York Times bestseller: Norman Cousins's phenomenal bestseller on illness overcome and the triumph of the human spirit.

The premise of Norman Cousins's enormously influential work is that the human mind is capable of promoting the body's capacity for combating illness and healing itself even when faced with a seemingly hopeless medical predicament. The author recounts his personal experiences while working in close collaboration with his doctor to overcome a crippling and supposedly irreversible disease, and illustrates the life-saving and ultimately life-prolonging benefits to be gained by taking responsibility for one's own well-being. Cousins's story is inspirational reading for anyone contending with a serious illness.

Norman Cousins was a longtime editor of the Saturday Review and the author of eleven books on health and healing, among other works.

Review:

Cousins' reflections...are as inspiring as they are informed, as well-stated as they are carefully conceived. -- Library Journal
