Publisher's Summary

The field of mind-body medicine is plagued by wild claims that mislead patients and instil false hope. But as scientists in a range of fields uncover solid evidence that our minds influence our bodies quite profoundly, there is now great promise, too.
Jo Marchant attempts to use scientific research to find out if alternative medicines work; if our thoughts, beliefs and emotions influence our physical health; and if we can train our brains to heal our bodies.

Excellent content, terrible narration

The content of this book is very interesting with informative case studies that back up the ideas being described.

Unfortunately the narration is terrible. The narrator hypes up every new piece of information like it's a dramatic novel and puts on voices for different characters like she's reading a child's bedtime story. This style makes it very difficult to follow what is an interesting piece of scientific research. The narration drove me so much to distraction that I stopped listening for a few weeks. I restarted the book today and have only got to chapter 3 before I can't take it anymore.

DO NOT buy this audiobook, but definitely go out and purchase the real book instead!

Great content but dodgy accents

Loved the content but the narrator attempted to do accents of the people being interviewed but they sucked at it and I found it annoying. However it didn't detract enough to let me get the learning.
