Praise

“Thoughtful and stimulating…The whole-life stories that Dr. O’Sullivan tells are compelling [and] carefully chosen…a wise book.” —Wall Street Journal
 
“O’Sullivan illuminates one of medicine’s most fraught moments, when a physician reaches the conclusion that there is no physical (or ‘organic’) disease.” —New York Review of Books
 
“In this important book, O’Sullivan…advocates for new ways to look, understand, and treat unexplainable symptoms, paving the way for bringing relief to her patients. Some of the cases will break your heart.” —Huffington Post

“Each chapter of this book presents a case study, lending vivid life to patients with psychosomatic disorders…If empathy is bolstered by understanding, then this book will bring such sentiments to a rarely understood condition. It will engage readers’ heads, but also quite possibly enter their hearts.” —Publishers Weekly 

“Doctors’ tales of their patients’ weirder afflictions have been popular since Oliver Sacks…Few of them, however, are as bizarre or unsettling as those described in this extraordinary and extraordinarily compassionate book.” —Sunday Times 

“Honest, fascinating, and necessary.” —The Times (UK)
