"An eye-opening guide to our responsibility for many of the illnesses we experience." (AudioFile)
These days I enjoy mostly SciFi and Techno Thrillers.
It's hard to tell from the sample where this book is going. The narrator is good, and shows personality when he talks. However, most all the talk is just quotes from the bible. This audio book lacks substance, and doesn't tell me anything new or original. I was rather disappointed that I used a credit for it. I give it two stars since the narrator reads well.
We live in a very stressful world today. And knowing now to deal with stress be it on the job or in one's family, this book can be a life-saver. What I really liked about "Deadly Emotions" was the fact that the author was direct and to the point how emotions can ruin one's health as well as destroying relationships. Chronic deadly emotions such as anger, violence, etc., which causes inflammation in the body can lead to all kinds of diseases. Stress is a fact of life but too much stess will kill you. Also, some stess can be good and knowing how to handle it can do a body good!
The first time I saw Dr. Colbert was on John Hagee and I read several of The Bible Cure Books he wrote. They are short and informative. This book looks deep into the spiritual aspect of how our emotional heath affects our physical bodies. He give numerous examples of how unforgivness or bitterness can take root and create a physical condition that is overlooked by traditional medicine.
"Only if you believe in god"
Having looked at the description, I expected this book to be a pragmatic and useful guide to how to deal with emotions.
Whilst it does have some useful information on emotions, for me, it contains too many biblical references and home-spun advice.
As it is written by a doctor, I was expecting the advice to have a scientific leaning, but faith in god seems to be the way forward.
