Healing without Medicine by Albert Amao, PhD, has been reviewed in the May 2015 issue of California Bookwatch and also appears in the Cengage Learning, Gale interactive CD-ROM series "Book Review Index" which is published four times a year for academic, corporate and public libraries.
Though the likely readers of Healing Without Medicine from Pioneers to Modern Practice: How Millions Have Been Healed by the Power of the Mind Alone will be new age or spirituality followers who will embrace the idea that all healing is self-induced, this book is featured here because any with an interest in healing will find its lessons and insights thought-provoking and important. Chapters consider how the human psyche interacts with the physical body, how spirituality enters into the bigger picture of illness and health, and how the power of mind works in the overall healing process. The result is a survey highly recommended for any reader interested in alternative healing.
Exceptionally well written, organized and presented, "Meditation as a Way of Life: Philosophy and Practice" is recommended as an invaluable introduction to the non-specialist general reader with an interest in mediation, and has a great deal to offer those who are extensively experienced with meditation practices and philosophy. Very highly recommended for personal, professional, community, and academic library reference collections, it should be noted that "Meditation as a Way of Life: Philosophy and Practice" is also available in a Kindle edition ($9.99).
