This book has changed my life. I feel like a window has been opened in my mind. I learned more about myself in one book compared to years of living.

Excellent book, it explains all psychosomatic connections to any pain. Authors thinking might be not understood at first. Second or third reading would be recommended... :-)

Had difficulties with the author's contention that all pain is psychosomatic.
