    How do our thoughts and emotions affect our health? Are our bodies and minds distinct from one another, or do they function together as parts of an interconnected system? Neuroscientist Candace Pert provides startling and decisive answers to these and other challenging questions that scientists and philosophers have pondered for centuries. She explains the scientific basis of popular wisdom and phenomena like "gut feelings" and makes comprehensible recent discoveries in cancer and AIDS research.

    Overall

    I had read the book about the time it may have appeared at Audible,(2003?) though my download of the Audible version is just last month.

    From the title, one would expect it, the book or audiobook, to be more biochemically oriented and less about the various politics associated with biomedical discovery and how discoveries come into the public's knowledge. However, I already knew about this. maybe it could have been called "The Politics of Emotion" maybe an allusion to RD Laing's famous book.

    On a positive note, I think it is very valuable to have a document with the actual author doing the narration as in this case. Whatever limitation may appear in the diction etc. is more than compensated by delivering the listener (and in my case) or former reader to very much the "soul" of the matter, because the voice nuances maybe most definitely represent the author's soul!
