Summary
What does it mean to be well? Is it something in our body? Or, is it rather something subjective - something of the mind? In this profound collection of clinical stories and meditations, eminent psychiatrist Dr Alastair Santhouse draws on his experience of treating thousands of hospital patients to show how our emotions are inextricably linked to our physical wellbeing. Written with honesty, wisdom, compassion, and humour, each chapter focuses on a fascinating case study that illustrates why our healthcare is too concerned with treating this or that organ, rather than the whole individual
