Dr Taylor explores the mind-body connection in this well written book. Recent developments in science have shown that the old notions of the body functioning independently of the mind, attitudes, emotions, personality characteristics etc. are untrue. Whether it's a matter of saying young, fit and healthy or recovering from disease, the mind is crucial in the ultimate outcome. The book teaches you how to take control of your own state of health and how to improve your wellness with proven mental techniques. The text is illustrated by humorous cartoons, there is a "Self-Responsibility Quiz" for the reader to fill in (to gauge your state of wellness) and a good bibliography. The core of the book is The 7 Fundamentals (1. The Real You, 2. Thoughts Are Things, 3. Forgive And Let Go, 4. Love Cancels Fear, 5. Acceptance Is Mastery, 6. Interdependence, 7. Do It Now). I found this an enjoyable read but would also like to recommend Dr. Taylor's wide variety of subliminal cassettes. Choose from the amazing range of subjects and technologies and use the appropriate tapes in conjunction with this book. It will bring about astonishing improvements in your enjoyment of life.
