Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Juhan examines the physiology and psychology of our response to touch, combining excellent illustrations with a detailed but readable technical discussion. Individual sections conclude with his position that through body work, ``heightened self-awareness and improved control over conditioned responses'' will improve our health and reduce our Job-like suffering. Although Juhan is a professional body worker at Esalen Institute, he does not describe the techniques used and readers will have to test his claims themselves. Recommended for comprehensive collections on human physiology. Michael D. Cramer, Virginia Polytechnic Inst. & State Univ. Lib., Blacksburg
