The Anti-Cancer Marriage: Living Longer Through Loving

The Anti-Cancer Marriage: Living Longer Through Loving

by Frederick B. Levenson

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
The author's thesis that people in good, lasting marriages live longer is taken a step or two farther by his linking all marital problems to the past success or failure of the ``infant-mother bond.'' If either partner did not bond successfully with the mother, then the partners are unlikely to develop a marriage bondand ``without a fusional relationship in life they are at far greater risk of many psychosomatic disorders, including cancer.'' The case studies of unsuccessful marriages that illustrate this argument read like soap opera rather than clinical practice. Aimed at the general public, the book appears to be of limited value to collections. John M. Haynes, Haynes Mediation Associates, New York
