i have not read that book, although i think i may see if i can pick it up (maybe my local Gilda's Club has it, they have a lending library)
i have some extra freetime next week, it'd be nice to finish a book.
I just read "Prepare for Surgery, Heal Faster" by Peggy Huddleston. it's more dealign with meditation, but she has study upon case study of instances where your attitude, mentality, energy, etc. can affect your healing.
I'd recommend it to everyone, even those not having surgery.
