In Anatomy of an Illness, a pioneering account of his triumph over a severe illness, Norman Cousins recounted in aspiring detail the helpful effect that positive attitudes and a partnership with his physician had on his recovery. His personal experience led Cousins to an unusual quest: the search for proof that hope, faith, laughter, and the will to live are biochemical factors that can actually help combbat serious disease.

Drawing on his experiences as a faculty member at the UCLA School of Medicine and on hundreds of interviews with doctors, patients, medical students, and research scientists, Cousins provides the exciting medical evidence he helped uncover. He shows how an optimistic outlook and a strong relationship with your doctor can make illness less painful and increase your chances of survival. Good medicine for doctors and patients alike, Head First will restore your faith in the healing powers of the human spirit.
