Publisher's Summary

Ancient medical science told us our minds and bodies are one. So did philosophers of old. Now modern science and new research are helping us to understand these connections. In Healing and the Mind, Bill Moyers talks with physicians, scientists, therapists, and patients - people who are taking a new look at the meaning of sickness and health. In a series of fascinating and provocative interviews, he discusses their search for answers to perplexing questions: how do emotions translate into chemicals in our bodies? How do thoughts and feelings influence health? How can we collaborate with our bodies to encourage healing? From small private clinics to large public hospitals, from the People's Republic of China to a Massachusetts medical center, Healing and the Mind looks at modern medicine and Western practices. This documentary will influence the way you think about sickness and health.

This is NOT the book of this title - it's TV audio

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

If it actually WERE the book by Bill Moyers with this title. Instead, it's essentially the audio of the TV series with this title. I have the hardcover book, and finally located Chapter 1 in the audible version -- it's more or less chapter 10 in the actual book. I'm very disappointed.

What could Bill Moyers have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Given me the actual book, instead of the transcript of the TV show, complete with long periods of music and presumably visual scenes that meant nothing on when all you could hear was audio.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Bill Moyers?

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Healing and the Mind?

Good topic very poor presentation

I am convinced that this book was recorded from a TV special. The subject matter is good however, it is just like sitting in front of the TV without having a picture. There are sections where all you hear is a person talking in a foreign language, I found this very annoying. All things considered save you money.
