The Divided Mind is the crowning achievement of Dr. John E. Sarno's distinguished career as a groundbreaking medical pioneer, going beyond pain to address the entire spectrum of psychosomatic (mindbody) disorders.

The interaction between the generally reasonable, rational, ethical, moral conscious mind and the repressed feelings of emotional pain, hurt, sadness, and anger characteristic of the unconscious mind appears to be the basis for mindbody disorders. The Divided Mind traces the history of psychosomatic medicine, including Freud's crucial role, and describes the psychology responsible for the broad range of psychosomatic illness. The failure of medicine's practitioners to recognize and appropriately treat mindbody disorders has produced public health and economic problems of major proportions in the United States.

One of the most important aspects of psychosomatic phenomena is that knowledge and awareness of the process clearly have healing powers. Thousands of people have become pain-free simply by reading Dr. Sarno's previous books. How and why this happens is a fascinating story, and is revealed in The Divided Mind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Changing This book, incredible! The events depicted in this book were something i did not see coming. The way Sean Parnell tells his story makes you feel like you are right there as one of the men from his platoon. What Sean and his men went through was unimaginable. The victories, and the horrors, brought to light through the words of someone who lived them, makes this book that much more moving. The sense of family and love that Sean has towards his men cannot only be seen throughout the book, it can be felt through the words written on the page; making every event in his book hit home. When you read about their victory, it makes you happy, when someone gets hit with a bullet, it makes you scared for them. When the ultimate sacrifice is made, you feel heartbroken. Through Sean's words, you live through everything he went through. I feel honoured to have read this book, and learned Outlaw Platoon's story. My thoughts and prayers go out to all those lost, and to their families. Sean- thank you for your service, and for bringing the actions of your platoon to light through this amazing book. I know you most likely wont ever see this but you changed my life and i feel honored to have read your story, thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this book! LOVE THIS BOOK! It was nonstop action, and the military jargon was explained for those of us unfamiliar with the slang and terms. The other Afghanistan war stories just don't measure up

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't stop reading it Most of the military books I've read have been on special operations. This book tells of an infantry unit in Afghanistan. Wow! These men endured much for our country. Great read.
