About the Author

Christopher Eccleston is Professor Psychology at the University of Bath in the UK where he directs the Centre for Pain Research.


Psychology is deeply intertwined with our bodily existence, yet this fact is poorly acknowledged. i Embodiedr describes ten bodily sensations that are hardly discussed in introductory psychology textbooks. Each chapter guides the reader through the fascinating world within the skin, integrating sound scientific knowledge about bodily sensation with everyday experiences and stories of when things go awry. The book is at once instructive and entertaining, and guarantees a fresh insight. It is a delightful read. * Omer Van den Bergh, Professor of Psychology, University of Leuven *
Dr. Eccleston has produced an excellent, comprehensive, and thought-provoking investigation of the psychology of the human body. With real-life stories that illustrate the extremes of physical sensations, this is a must read for anyone interested in understanding the mind-body connection. * Emily Law, Assistant Professor, Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, University of Washington School of Medicine *
I recommend this thought-provoking book to all. * Dr Susie Lord, Clinical Lead, Childrens Complex Pain Service, John Hunter Childrens Hospital, Australia; The Australian Pain Society *
