In When the body says no, Gabor Maté writes about disease and illnesses from the lens of the mind-body perspective. The cost of hidden stress on our bodies and health comes with a high price. Through this lens Maté invites us to (learn how) to listen to our guts and bodies, and act on the signs of stress with more emotional competence.

Thoughts from readers:

This book certainly shows it age

`They ask me if it’s true that when we bury somebody we dig ‘em out in four, five years and replace ‘em with another one. I tell ‘em no. When these people is buried, he’s buried here for life.`

—Elmer Ruiz, Gravedigger

It is not really accurate to call Terkel the “author” of this book. The real authors are the 133 subjects of Terkel’s interviews. Terkel serves as a stenographer and redactor, recording interviews and editing them into readable format. This is no mean feat, of course.
