"Another excellent book, Fibromyalgia and the MindBodySpirit Connection by Dr. William B. Salt II and Dr. Edwin H. Season, describes the enormous benefits that can be gleaned from…cognitive behavioral therapy…"
Jane E. Brody, Columnist, The New York Times

"Salt (Irritable Bowel Syndrome & the Mind-Body/Brain-Gut Connection) has teamed up with orthopedic surgeon Season to outline a seven-step, 12-week program using body-mind-spirit concepts to 'focus on the power of your mind rather than on the pain and diagnosis' of fibromyalgia. The authors provide foundational information on the role of body-mind interactions in health and disease and then move into specific information on fibromyalgia. Drawing upon current knowledge in body-mind medicine and pain management, they create a thoughtful approach to managing the debilitating muscular pain and fatigue associated with fibromyalgia, focusing on wellness and patient empowerment. The book offers a well-organized easy-to-read, multidimensional approach to tapping the body's innate healing ability. This book will appeal to the general reader and is a nice addition to the literature of fibromyalgia. For public libraries and all consumer health collections."
Library Journal

"Drs. Salt and Season show how to live with this condition, rather than suffer from it, written for the lay reader, and to help Fibromyalgia patients to better understand the core of their condition and take positive steps to reverse those factors that are within their control. Highly recommended for personal, public, and professional medical reference library collections."
James A. Cox, The Midwest Book Review

"It has been a very long time since I have read anything which gripped me and held my attention so completely as this book. I have already read it through two times, and continue to return to several sections…if I could have my wish tonight it would be for each and every one of you to read this book. That is how important I believe its message is. My review copy is already all marked up with a highlighter and the pages are marked with many paper clips."
Betty Iams, Journey to Wellness Newsletter

"This is THE book to become the bible of fibromyalgia sufferers."
Velma Daniels, News Chief

"This book is a godsend to those with fibro. The plan is clear…the many photos and charts as well as line drawings combined with a thorough index provide a concrete course of action…I have not seen the need to award any book more than five stars for some time now. Fibromyalgia and the MindBodySpirit Connection deserves many more than a mere five stars…you will want this book."
Buzzy, Buzz Review News

"…This definitive book, with its emphasis on such topics as weight, diet, exercise, stress control and psychological issues, places the ball squarely in the victim's court. Sufferers take note. Steps outlined in this book could possibly provide the necessary empowerment for a renewed lifestyle."
Susan Farrington, The Sanford Herald

"(Fibromyalgia and the MindBodySpirit Connection) is a book about taking control of the very condition that has infiltrated one's life and turning it around to find relief."
Marilee Reyes, San Gabriel Valley News

"… a clear, concise and practical guide to help anyone suffering from fibromyalgia regain control of his or her health."
Arlene Shovald, Ph.D, The Mountain Guide

"Now, thank goodness I have found a book that explains…fibromyalgia and how pain involves more than the body."
Betty Ratliff Smith, The Winchester Sun

"The great value of this book lies in the doctors' acceptance of these symptoms as real and the support they offer sufferers to move their focus from the negative experience of pain to the positive search for health."
Nancy Seher, Woodward News

"…This disease is very complicated. Salt and Season make it easier to understand with a readable style. I recommend the book."
