Blumenthal pierces the Zionist Israeli smokescreen with eloquent vignettes of reality. A great journalist, this book is a must-read for anyone who cares about Israel and who also cares about human rights and humanity for all.

5.0 out of 5 stars A life-saver, Jan. 9 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
When I collapsed from burnout and a range of auto-immune disorders, Mate's book was the one resource that compassionately explained the emotional roots of these and many other illnesses, including cancer and MS, and offered practical directions for change. This one book gave me the permission to finally listen to my body and choose a less stressful life. I am now both healthier and far more relaxed than ever before.

Mate, a physician and former medical editor of the Globe and Mail, writes eloquently from his own experience and from his intensive work with patients. He offers a wholistic perspective, a refreshing alternative to the medical model and genetics. Throughout, his compassion, wisdom and self-critical humor shine through.
