Head First: The Biology of Hope


The author shares stories from his 2nd career, at UCLA Medical School where he helped begin studies on the connection between a positive mental outlook and a positive medical outcome. He was often asked to see counsel with cancer patients. His take home advice: accept the diagnosis, but deny any pessimistic prognosis, because there are always patients who beat the odds- like he did.
