We recommend any book by Norman Cousins. Cousins had a history of
back to the tuberculosis that confined him to a sanatorium for a year
when he was 11. In the mid-1960s he suffered a paralyzing collagen
disease, which he claimed to have cured with massive injections of
vitamin C. Around 1977 Cousins contracted cancer. His disease
eventually went into remission, the whole struggle being described in
Anatomy of an Illness (1979), which was later made into a CBS
television movie starring Ed Asner and Cousins himself in 1984.
both its prevention and cure, continued to interest Cousins,
particularly after he suffered a near-fatal heart attack in 1980. It
led him to write The Human Option (1981) and The Healing Heart (1983)
and to compile the anthology The Physician in Literature (1981).
Throughout Cousins's bouts with illness, he subscribed to the belief in
a "laugh-cure", documenting his theories in his various books on
health, and also in magazine articles. He also served as an adjunct
professor at the University of California at Los Angeles School of
Medicine. His nutrition education articles and books are more geared
toward illness prevention and cure and not necessarily the more general
subject of nutrition.
In the late 1980s Cousins wrote Head First (1989), which further
explored his theories about medicine and the doctor-patient
relationship. His 1987 work, The Pathology of Power was a treatise on
world peace. Other of Cousins's later works include, The Human
Adventure: A Camera Chronicle (1986), and Albert Schweitzer's Mission:
Healing and Peace (1985).
