Overview

One of the great self-help books of all time, How to Live 365 Days a Year has sold more than 1 million copies and has been translated into 13 languages. Author John A. Schindler, M.D. introduced the powerful concept of EII, or "emotionally induced illness," long before most physicians were aware of the connection between emotions and physical health. Our new edition of this 1956 New York Times bestseller, a classic of the genre, has updated health and nutrition information by a leading health and fitness expert. Dr. Schindler's original research explains how prolonged unhappiness sets off negative responses in the nervous and endocrine systems, producing symptoms of disease, and offers techniques for coping with EII. His landmark advice on positive lifestyle, exercise, and nutrition speaks volumes to today's self-aware readers. Topics include achieving emotional satisfaction, attaining sexual maturity, dealing with stress in the workplace, and meeting the challenge of the aging years.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
"Emotional stress produces physical illness" is the sturdy, and somewhat rusty, hook from which all of Schindler's observations on how to live a better life dangle. Originally published in the pre-biotech era of the mid-1950s, the book introduced readers to the idea that an elevated stress level, related to everything from financial insecurity to the fear of dying, can manifest itself in the nervous and endocrine systems, resulting in symptoms that mimic diseases-a syndrome that Schindler dubbed EII (emotionally induced illness). It is from this familiar, though certainly relevant, concept that Schindler tethers a surplus of one-liner philosophies for achieving happiness: "Get up on the right side of the bed," "Allow yourself the delightful feeling of being happy" and "Avoid running your misfortune through your mind like a repeating phonograph record." The introduction to this new edition, by health care journalist Holtz, cautions that "Schindler's message-that right thoughts bring health and wrong thoughts bring disease''-can be dangerous if carried too far. This warning is essential as one peruses the cheerful, overly simplistic advice (including the prohibition of sex outside marriage) that ultimately-like a phonograph record-has limited relevance to today's world.

Meet the Author

John A. Schindler, M.D. co-founded the distinguished Monroe Clinic in 1939, where he advanced his revolutionary theories on psychosomatic medicine. His 1949 radio broadcast, titled "How to Live a Hundred Years Happily," was so well received that transcripts of the show were printed and sold by the thousands. This led him to write the highly influential bestseller How to Live 365 Days a Year. Dr. Schindler died in 1957.

    Very Relevant For Today

    For a book that was written in the 1950's, this one still packs a punch. I've read it once, and I would like to read it over again to think about a lot of its concepts. Mr. Shindler's insights on human behavior are excellent, and his practical solutions to overcome our problems were very smart and helpful. It's also a very entertaining book!
