9780140139655: Head First: The Biology of Hope and the Healing Power of the Human Spirit

Cousins' pioneering account of his personal triumph over severe illness was the precursor of hundreds of articles and books dealing with the mind's ability to influence the body's health.

HEAD FIRST depicts Cousins' 10-year quest to find the proof that positive attitudes are actually biochemical factors which combat disease.

"An eloquent plea for two needed emphases: more humane doctor-patient relations and greater patient involvement in the struggle with disease." Melvin Konner
