Breaking Out Of Pain, by Andrea Leonard-Segal MD, Eric Sherman PsyD, Arlene Feinblatt PhD, and Frances Sommer Anderson PhD

“As a practicing Retina Surgeon/Ophthalmologist who trained at, taught at, and has access to some of the best medical institutions in the world, it was only my personal interface, as a patient, with John E. Sarno, MD that led me out of my own inexplicable ‘Health-Scare’ labyrinth. In Breaking Out of Pain, a beautiful compendium of essays on the pioneering work of Dr. Sarno, several leaders in the field of mind-body science remind us that a leading diagnostic question for all patients needs to be, ‘How are YOU doing and feeling in this thing called LIFE?’” – Michael J. Cooney, MD MBA, Managing Partner, Vitreous Retina Macula Consultants of New York, Clinical Assistant Professor, New York University Grossman School of Medicine

“Dr. Sarno’s seminal contributions to the field of Mindbody Medicine are duly honored in this collection of essays, commemorating his 100th birthday. I have been impressed by Dr. Sarno’s work for decades. Fortunately, the impact of his ideas PERSISTS in recent paradigm shifts in the mainstream understanding and treatment of chronic pain.” – Andrew T. Weil, MD, Founder, University of Arizona Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine
