About the Author

Larry Dossey, M.D., is a physician of internal medicine. He was a battalion surgeon in Vietnam, chief of staff at Medical City Dallas Hospital, and a member of Hillary Rodham Clinton's Task Force on Health Care Reform. He has lectured all over the world, including at the Mayo Clinic, Harvard, Johns Hopkins, Cornell, and numerous other major universities and medical schools. His eight other books include Space, Time, and Medicine; Healing Words; and Prayer Is Good Medicine.


Dossey, a popular author (Reinventing Medicine) and lecturer, again explores the potential of the healing mind in these essays, first published in the peer-reviewed journal Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine. Organized around broad themes, the pieces explore topics such as the individual meaning of illness; the effects of love, humor, prayer, and trout fishing on disease; and, in an interesting essay that nevertheless does not seem to fit, the author's experiences in Vietnam. Dossey continues to challenge physicians, particularly medical educators, to temper their reliance on scientific principles with an appreciation for consciousness and the mind. His numerous anecdotes are based on extensive clinical experience and cited from various sources, spanning the gamut from science to parapsychology (several appear to be urban legends). For alternative health collections where Dossey is popular. Andy Wickens, King Cty. Lib. Syst., Seattle Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
