When cancer specialists at Boston’s internationally renowned Dana-Farber Cancer Institute diagnosed Margie Levine with a deadly asbestos-related lung cancer, they predicted that she had only six months to live. Refusing to give up hope, she chose an approach that combined state-of-the-art medicine with her own holistic program. Eleven years later, her mind/body regimen has evolved into a prescription for survival, and she has dedicated her life to sharing it with others. Surviving Cancer offers a practical, integrated way of self-healing, with advice on: •Creating the best possible team of physicians and loved ones • Maximizing nutrition, using veggie overdosing • Ridding your cells of harbored anger with a six-point forgiveness program • Using music to boost your immune system and fight pain • Using visualization to make your own affirmation tape • Building up endorphins by seeking joy • Using creative meditation techniques Covering these topics and dozens more, Surviving Cancer is not only one woman’s lifesaving testimony, it’s a plan for finding rejuvenation in every new day.

Americans have traditionally placed great value on self-reliance and fortitude. In recent decades, however, we have seen the rise of a therapeutic ethic that views Americans as emotionally underdeveloped, psychically frail, and requiring the ministrations of mental health professionals to cope with life's vicissitudes. Being "in touch with one's feelings" and freely expressing them have become paramount personal virtues. Today-with a book for every ailment, a counselor for every crisis, a lawsuit for every grievance, and a TV show for every conceivable problem-we are at risk of degrading our native ability to cope with life's challenges. Drawing on established science and common sense, Christina Hoff Sommers and Dr. Sally Satel reveal how "therapism" and the burgeoning trauma industry have come to pervade our lives. Help is offered everywhere under the presumption that we need it: in children's classrooms, the workplace, churches, courtrooms, the media, the military. But with all the "help" comes a host of troubling consequences, including: * The myth of stressed-out, homework-burdened, hypercompetitive, and depressed or suicidal schoolchildren in need of therapy and medication * The loss of moral bearings in our approach to lying, crime, addiction, and other foibles and vices * The unasked-for "grief counselors" who descend on bereaved families, schools, and communities following a tragedy, offering dubious advice while billing plenty of money * The expansion of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder from an affliction of war veterans to nearly everyone who has experienced a setback Intelligent, provocative, and wryly amusing, One Nation Under Therapy demonstrates that "talking about" problems is no substitute for confronting them.

Yet the bulk of the world's asbestos was mined after 1960. This is the first global history of how the asbestos industry defended the product throughout the 20th century.
