Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is a great book full of groundbreaking research, but you can really sense how 'dated' it is and steeped in 70's pop culture self help promotional style. Much work has been done with behavioral kinesiology since publishing this book- most remarkably Dr. David Hawkin's work on conciousness via B.K.. I would reccomend going right to his work since it's more current and uses this knowledge to explore spiritual grounds. That being said, it's a fun, easy read with some good basics in it. Thank you John Diamond for all the work you've done!

This is the first of Dr. Diamond's books that I read, and it's easy to see why it became a best-seller. Dr. Diamond looks in detail at some of the aspects of our lives that affect us negatively, and gives simple, effective ways of overcoming these stresses. I have incorporated Dr. Diamond's suggestions in my normal working day for many years now, and I have found them to be enormously beneficial.

I first read this book in the early 1980s, and I have referred to it ever since for its highly practical suggestions on ways to reduce stress and enhance creativity. I have also used Diamond's discussion of "Stress and Cerebral Balance" as a text in teaching communication in college courses. While I understand that the use of kinesiological testing by those not professionally trained has turned out to be a more difficult and complex matter than suggested in this early work, the results of Dr. John Diamond's research are as relevant today as they were when this book was first published in 1979. This book truly laid the groundwork for Dr. Diamond's wonderful subsequent writings, which have developed and refined his work. And here, as always, Dr. Diamond's prose is wonderful reading -- robust, down-to-earth, and entertaining!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In this self-help manual, Dr. John Diamond urges the need for us all to take back the responsibility for being well. The author tells of how his close working relationship with his colleague, Dr. Goodheart, expert in the field of Applied Kinesiology, impacted on his own work, by enabling him to practice medicine democratically. Diamond's own research and practice led, in time, to the separate but related discipline of Behavioral Kinesiology (BK), an integration of psychiatry, psychosomatic medicine, Kinesiology, preventive medicine, and the humanities, on which Your Body Doesn't Lie is based.

In unpacking what he has learned from his own experiences with patients in the field, Diamond shows how we ourselves can determine the extent to which we allow various factors in our environment and in our life-style to affect our body energy. He suggests how we can replace many of our current energy-depleting activities with ones that are energy-enriching. He also advises us on how we can modify or counteract the effect of those life-sapping factors that we cannot totally avoid.

Starting with a discussion of the importance of the thymus gland as the seat of our Life Energy, Diamond reveals how stress can affect cerebral balance. In order to overcome the deleterious effects of negative stress upon our bodies, he offers some simple techniques to counteract such results. Taking several everyday objects, such as sunglasses and ice water, he shows how they can weaken one's Life Energy if they are used improperly and suggests alternative modes of use that can, instead, be life-enhancing.

Diamond shows how beneficial most music and the sounds of nature can be.

By Peter Muir on June 2 2003
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book is a classic of its kind. Although it is probably best known for its discussion of the kinesiological muscle test, it is ultimately more important for showing that stimuli, whether physical or otherwise, effect our Life Energy constantly for better or worse. Furthermore, these effects tend to be the same for all observers: uncousciously, this painting, that food and so on all effect us the same, regardless of what we think in our conscious minds. This, of course, is a remarkable discovery, and the implications of it have been explored more fully by Dr. Diamond in many of his subsequent works. In short, this has to be one of the most important health books of the twentieth century.

When I first read this book in the early 80's, it profoundly changed my life. The idea that there is an innate body wisdom that guides us, physically as well as ethically and spiritually, was a revelation to me. And the fact that this body wisdom could be known through objective means was a real eye (and heart!)opener. Dr. Diamond's pioneering work with the thymus gland is the basis for much of current immunology as well as mind-body therapy and interpersonal ethics. This is a classic that everyone interested in holistic health should read -- as well as everyone who practices holistic medicine or purports to to use kinesiological testing therapeutically.

This book is excellent for beginners. It tells you the how's, what's where's and why's. It gives you are start on how to do it and the basics about why it works. I am an experienced muscle tester and this book started me off well. The person who wrote the 1 star review probably didn't invest any time into the book. If you put nothing in you get nothing out. But this book doesn't even require much investment. It is very easy to read, I finished it for the first time in 2 days. I still keep coming back to it. For a more advanced book, go to "Your Body Can Talk". That is much more in depth.
