Rossi brings together new evidence from psychoneuroimmunology, neuroendocrinology, molecular genetics, and neurobiology to show that there is no gap between mind and body, and outlines in a series of teaching tutorials a dozen new approaches to mind-body healing. Many of these utilize the ultradian healing response, based on the body's natural 90-minute psychobiological rhythms. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
