The author proposes an alternative approach to common painful conditions, which he claims are caused by what he calls the psychosomatic "tension myositis syndrome." Since Dr. Sarno invokes Freudian explanations involving the id, ego, and superego and presents no scientific studies, the "thousands of cures" he reports have failed to influence mainstream medicine. With his deep and resonant voice Paul Hecht sounds like a radio announcer from the past. He speaks slowly enough to convey the plethora of psychological and medical terms and never mispronounces. The equally talented James Boles reads supportive text by two other psychologists. An informal author interview imparts a personal epilogue.
