I got this book from my local library and loved it so much I wanted my own copy. As someone who has survived cancer and it still surviving it this book served as a wake up call.

There are undoubtedly connections between emotional stress, coping styles and illness. But this author overstates these connections, highlighting only research that supports his hypotheses and often citing studies that are not only very very old, but have been repeatedly criticized in the literature. Dr. Mate talks at great length about trauma (during childhood and adulthood) as if it is solely experienced by individuals suffering from serious ailments like autoimmune disorders, cancers and degenerative conditions when this is obviously far from the truth. Nowhere near enough attention is given to the genetic and environmental connections that are known to cause many of the illnesses he describes. And, though not specifically stated, this book treads into the uncomfortable territory of implying blame for many of these conditions. This book seems to contribute to the growing body of literature on the Internet and otherwise that promote alternative ways of understanding and coping with illness, despite the lack of evidence for these techniques. It does seem that Dr. Mate cares about his patients, and certainly one can only benefit from finding healthy coping mechanisms to deal with stress, but I suspect that very few current medical specialists with success in treating any of these complex disorders would support his overstated ideas.
