    DescriptionWe do have biological LIVE and DIE mechanisms within us...the state of mind changes the state of the body by working through the central nervous system, the endocrine system and the immune system. Exceptional patients manifest the will to live in its most potent form ...' writes Dr Bernie Siegel. Drawing on his clinical experience Dr Seigel show how, by reaching out to others, we can alleviate stress and release the body's healing mechanism. In this extraordinary book he shows that when apparently terminally ill patients take control of their illness they can change, enrich and often prolong their lives far beyond scientific and medical expectation. Through the healing power of love patients who have come under his care have learned that hope and joy can work miracles.

    Author Information
    Bernie S. Siegel attended Cornell Medical College and then trained as a pediatric and general surgeon at Yale New Haven Hospital and the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh. In 1978 he founded ECap ( Exceptional Cancer Patients), a form of individual and group therapy which encourages personal change and healing. He has written three books since 1986, including the huge bestsellers, Peace, Love and Healing. Now retired as a surgeon, he lives in Connecticut and lectures widely all over the world.
    Review text
    This is deservedly a bestseller, billed as 'a remarkable classic of modern medicine' and written by a surgeon who is now retired. During decades of practising medicine, Siegel founded a group called Exceptional Cancer Patients, which aimed to help people take responsibility for their own healing - as opposed to mere recovery. His book, one of three written since 1986, is lucid and compassionate, based on hundreds of his own case studies. It examines some of the subtleties of the complex relationships between mind and body, life and death, disease and wholeness. Even if you don't agree with the conclusions, there is much which is compelling in his recounted experiences. (Kirkus UK)
