Booklist Review

This collection of essays by physicians, chiropractors, and other health authorities explores the relations between healers and the healed. Contributors include Norman Cousins, Bernard Siegel, and Susanna Davis, with Larry Dossey's ``The Wounded Healer'' an especially perceptive and thought-provoking piece. England's Prince Charles also provides an essay titled ``Reclaiming the Spirit of Healing.'' This volume emphasizes the importance of open and loving feelings and of encouraging individuals to take a clear-eyed view of life and personal goals. A thoughtful, wholly edifying health compendium.
