From Library Journal:

Sarno (rehabilitation medicine, NYU) follows his popular books Healing Back Pain and The Mindbody Prescription with a new volume that expands on those earlier works. Many people suffer severe chronic pain symptoms that do not appear to have a significant structural cause. Sarno's controversial pain philosophy contends that, in order to avoid severe emotional pain, the brain represses unconscious emotions by temporarily depriving oxygen to certain areas of the body, which causes actual pain symptoms. In these cases, the secret to stopping the pain is not based on surgery or other traditional medical interventions but, rather, on acknowledging the emotional conflicts. Sarno's latest offers additional examples of patients who have been helped by his methods. While much of the basic material is covered in his prior publications, Sarno has updated the information and included six lengthy chapters written by doctors who embrace his treatment philosophy. Their case studies help to strengthen his arguments. Given the popularity of his previous books, this is likely to be another best seller.
