Most people who read a review of a book, play, concert, or movie want to know the bottom line: Is it worth seeing or reading? Is it good? In a world of grays, we yearn for the black and whites. This book is a gray with mostly positives but also some negatives.

Mind, Body, and Medicine is a magnum opus by a psychologically minded, often brilliant internist who has read widely on the interface between psychiatry and the rest of medicine. The author covers the gamut of medical illnesses in which there are or may be psychological components. The book, which the author correctly terms a text, is exhaustively and meticulously referenced.
