Reviews

"Doctors' tales of their patients' weirder afflictions have been popular since Oliver Sacks... Few of them, however, are as bizarre or unsettling, as those described in this extraordinary and extraordinarily compassionate book" -- James McConnachie * Sunday Times *
"A fascinating glimpse into the human condition... a forceful call for society to be more open about such suffering" -- Ian Birrell * Daily Mail *
"An important study of psychosomatic illness, which shows it to be a serious disease of modern society: misunderstood, misdiagnosed and surrounded by fear" -- Louise Carpenter * Telegraph *
"Remarkable Book... Offer[s] a remarkable insight into the suffering of these patients, as well as the power of the mind over the body... It should be on the reading list of every medical student." -- PD Smith * Guardian *
"A book to start a revolution in healthcare, to make use see what no one has seen so clearly before" -- Helen Rumbelow * Times *
