"I immensely enjoyed reading The Inner Pulse, which explores the connection between the body, mind, and soul in the healing process. I literally couldn't put this book down. Anyone reading this wonderful book, patient or caregiver, will be moved by the many examples of Dr. Siegel's impressive medical knowledge, but perhaps even more by his compassion, both of which shine through from the preface to the very last page.

"I immensely enjoyed reading The Inner Pulse, which explores the connection between the body, mind, and soul in the healing process. I literally couldn't put this book down. Anyone reading this wonderful book, patient or caregiver, will be moved by the many examples of Dr. Siegel's impressive medical knowledge, but perhaps even more by his compassion, both of which shine through from the preface to the very last page. If you're worried that doctors are becoming technologists and losing the healing touch, this book will boost your spirits. Spellbinding!"
—Isadore Rosenfeld, M.D., author of Doctor of the Heart and Symptoms, Rossi Distinguished Professor of Clinical Medicine, Weill Cornell Medical College
"Understanding that mind, body, and spirit are a unified entity is vital to our health and healing. When we help people experience love in their lives, the body gets the message and helps them to survive. The Inner Pulse contains many words of wisdom and the stories of many interesting experiences. The experience of disease is something doctors are not trained to understand; it is very different from a diagnosis. I give the author credit for becoming a healer who is willing to learn from his life and patients and not remain a mechanistic doctor."
—Bernie Siegel, M.D., author of Faith, Hope and Healing and 365 Prescriptions for the Soul
"A groundbreaking book from a great thinker and physician, The Inner Pulse is part poetry, part prose, part prescription—and all about heart-centered healing. This book will literally save lives."
—Keith Ablow, M.D., New York Times bestselling coauthor of The 7: Seven Wonders That Will Change Your Life
"What makes Marc Siegel a truly great doctor is his uncanny ability to understand what ails a patient above and beyond the specific diagnosis: the profound importance a person's own attitude has on health. If you go around thinking that the sky is falling, soon enough it will. If, on the other hand, as Dr. Siegel writes brilliantly in The Inner Pulse, you have a positive attitude about life and the future, you will fare far better than your gloomy counterpart. Rich in anecdotes and evidence, this terrifically well-written and important book is a road map to a walk on the sunny side of the street."
—Geraldo Rivera, host of Geraldo at Large
"Dr. Marc Siegel has discovered a truly revolutionary approach to health and life by revealing the secrets of our inner pulse. Dr. Siegel is a highly respected and gifted physician whose great gift to the world may well be helping us find our inner pulse. If we really understood the pulse, it might unlock secrets to a healthier body, a more balanced temper, or a more contented marriage."
—Former Governor Mike Huckabee, host of Huckabee

I am an RN with over 40 years experience, in the ER. ICU and more recently in home care. There have been two recent patients of mine that by rights should NOT be alive. However they are, and I have actually discharge one, who continues to do well. I have been investigating the 'whys' of patients like these, and this book added to my study and inspiration. I think even non-medical people would be intrigued by the stories and by this doc. I would love to work with an MD such as Dr. Seigel, who keeps an open mind when dealing with his patients. Such docs are few and far between, unfortunately in this day of rush-rush diagnoses and treatment, with profit often as a motivation.
