"This book is remarkable. Not only is it a succinct summary on how to become your own wellness detective, it is also easy to read and humorous. With deep insight, it equips the user with a wellness model that they can use to monitor their health, and improve it. This book gave me sudden insight into the sources of my personal health issues, and has put me on the track to recovery."
WJ Kington - Brisbane.

"Dear John, I want to thank you for the workshop and your book both of which precipitated a shift in my energy. I have for the last year or more been facing a big lump of self-doubt in me which seemed to expand and infiltrate into many areas of my life, especially work. I read your book through and answered the questions and about a week later, there was a sudden energetic shift in me and this block was blown out of my system. Since then I have had nothing but success stories from my clients, or perhaps it is that I am able to hear them and not magnify the not so good.
Thank you for your contribution to this shift."
Sandra Newland - Brisbane.

"Thank you John for your book. I found it easy and enjoyable to read while being full of interesting and thought provoking information. It was good to read at home as I was able to reflect on each chapter before continuing on to the next one. The Impala story was the one that really spoke to me. I highly recommend the book to anyone searching for answers to why they are sick. "
Cathy Scully - Brisbane.

"Hey John,
Thanks for writing down in a very very funny way, stuff that I have read about in lots of different books put together in one silly, funny, practical, easy to read book. Loved the blacmange example - laughed for ages with the mental picture."
Lyndal Thomas, Yoga Teacher, Bowen Therapist, Brisbane.

"I LOVE, LOVE,LOVE your book. It brings with it all the inspiration and hope I felt at your workshop. I can hear your voice as I read and it gives me great permission to be myself and know that that is enough. ?Thanks for writing it. To me this is a liberating way to look at illness, physical or psychological, that allows people see their part without overburdening them with responsibility."
Patricia Banks M.A. Psychosynthesis Therapist, Dublin.

"It's rare that a book enters the arena of 'Health' and kicks arse in such a gentle, purposeful and original way. ?This is just such a book. ? The many years John Dalton has spent practising the art of healing have given him an entirely unique and ultimately helpful perspective on the causes of our illness and our health.

For anyone caught up in the whirligig of 21st Century living, or the desert of current medical understanding, this work is a refreshing, even joyous, oasis."
Chris Bray, Author, Brisbane.

Meet the Author

John Dalton
John Dalton
A world traveler and a graduate of the Iowa Writers' Workshop, John Dalton writes with clarity and precision -- offering a debut novel -- Heaven Lake -- that reflects both his deep familiarity with Asian culture and his exquisite craftsmanship.

Biography

John Dalton was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, the youngest of seven children. Upon graduation from college, he received a plane ticket to travel around the world, and so began an enduring interest in travel and foreign culture. During the late 1980s he lived in Taiwan for several years and traveled in Mainland China and other Asian countries. He attended the University of Iowa Writer's Workshop in the early 1990s and was awarded two fellowships at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown as well as a James Michener/Paul Engle Award for his (then) novel-in-progress, Heaven Lake. He presently lives with his wife in North Carolina.

Good To Know

Some interesting outtakes from our interview with Dalton:

"I worked for several years at the Barnes & Noble in Ladue, Missouri."

"When I was 23 and graduated from college, my older brother gave me a plane ticket to travel around the world. I went to Hawaii, Fiji, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and then on to Europe, traveling mostly on my own."

"I had nothing to do with the invention of the periodic table."

"I play Frisbee golf as a hobby -- I once threw a hole-in-one."
