When I wrote about this book last week, I had only read the introduction and was under the false impression that The Cure Within would provide more facts and scientific research than the book actually contains.
Sadly, I was disappointed by this book. While there were portions of it that I found interesting (particularly Chapter Six Eastward Journeys), I found this book largely dry and uninspiring.
It seems to me that the topic, a history of mind-body medicine, was just too ambitious for a book of only about 240 pages of text (and about 90 of footnotes, bibliography and index!).
Perhaps my expectations were simply too high, but I would not recommend this book.
