In the best-selling companion volume to the PBS series, acclaimed television journalist Bill Moyers explores the fascinating, complex, powerful connection between mind and body in human health. Ancient medical science told us our minds and bodies are one. So did philosophers of old. Now, modern science and new research are helping us to understand these connections. In Healing And The Mind, Bill Moyers talks with physicians, scientists, therapists, and patients -- people who are taking a new look at the meaning of sickness and health. In a series of fascinating and provocative interviews, he discusses their search for answers to perplexing questions: How do emotions translate into chemicals in our bodies? How do thoughts and feelings influence health? How can we collaborate with our bodies to encourage healing? With the incisive style that has made Bill Moyers's skills as an interviewer legendary, Healing And The Mind is destined to influence how America thinks about sickness and health.

He is the winner of more than 30 Emmy awards and nine Peabody awards, the Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Academy of Television, the Career Achievement Award from the International Documentary Association, and the Honorary Doctor of Fine Arts by the American Film Institute. Among his bestselling books are Listening to AmericaA World of IdeasThe Power of Myth (with Joseph Campbell), and Moyers on America.

From AudioFile:

Aiming for maximum exposure, Moyers's excellent five-part series, originally broadcast on PBS, is also available in book form and in this soundtrack production. This program has the obvious shortcomings of a soundtrack isolated from its visual counterpart, such as lengthy periods of Chinese speech without the benefits of subtitles and a martial arts demonstration which makes little sense in audio. However, Moyers's probing and sensitive voice, along with the articulate statements of people he skillfully interviews, first-rate engineering, and the freedom to enjoy this program in a variety of settings more than compensate for these shortcomings. This program will be widely used and appreciated. S.K. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
