This review is from: When the Body Says No: Understanding the Stress-disease Connection (Hardcover)
Since this book explains why we should change our old views on the causes of many diseases, it needs to be promoted far more. I think that the main problem is getting the message to the minds of younger people, many of whom are increasingly unwilling to read anything above a grade 8 level. Not that this is written at a university graduate level. I'm just trying to say that, thanks to text-messaging and passive TV watching, many will not read a book like this. And yet I would recommend it to everyone on this earth. It is a warning we should all heed. It goes deeper and further than the simple medical books that describe the functions of our body parts. And it all makes sense. The more we know about the interaction between our brain and body, the more we can try to avoid the stresses that help to sicken us. It's the difference between looking at an architect's blueprint of a bridge compared to reading about the physical properties of the bridge's components.
