This fascinating book offers the first scientific proof that spontaneous recovery from terminal illness happens more than anyone suspects--against the odds, and against medical convention. The book's chorus of voices tells readers about the extraordinary powers everyone possesses, and which can be used to conquer what medicine has claimed to be unconquerable.

Not all of them had peaceful, loving, trusting dispositions- that was clear. Some were downright ornery. But over and over we took note of a certain quality that we came to call "congruence"- an impression that these people, in the midst of crisis, had discovered a way to be deeply true to themselves, manifesting a set of behaviors growing from the roots of their being.
Certain of Dr. Oliver's cases have particularly strained his understanding of biological science. He fishes from a file cabinet the lung X rays of his "famous remission," a woman he treated between 1981 and 1983. Her kidney tumor had metastasized to her lungs, and her prognosis was terminal. But Oliver found that her tumors waxed and waned not with the inexorable progress of kidney cancer, but with the ups and downs of her relationship with her physically abusive husband.
