New Book. A memoir, reflections, and teachings.
This new book is dedicated to Dr. Sarno and written to coincide with the 100th anniversary of his birth. Dr. Sarno has meant so much to so many patients, physicians, and psychotherapists (among others). He was the most important professional mentor that I had. He was a powerful man, an innovator, and our relationship was, at times, complex.
This book attempts to understand that relationship (mentor to mentee) through twelve chapters and eighteen lessons. The lessons are mostly, but not all, positive. Disagreement and resolution can also be powerful. The final sections describe a mellowing, aging Doctor Sarno and the fond friends we became before his passing.
Dr. Sarno is a man whose influence will continue for far longer than his lifetime. I hope this work contributes to the understanding of the man and his contributions.
