***THE INSTANT SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER*** OVER ONE MILLION COPIES SOLD We tend to believe that normality equals health. Yet what is the norm in the Western world? Mental illness and chronic disease are on an unstoppable rise. How did we get here? And what lies ahead for us? 'It all starts with waking up... to what our bodies are expressing and our minds are suppressing.' In this life-affirming book, Gabor Mat connects the dots between our personal suffering and the relentless pressures of modern life showing that ill health is a natural reflection of our disconnection from our true selves. Drawing on four decades of clinical experience, and stories of people transforming their bodies and minds, Dr Mat offers a hopeful pathway to reconnection and healing.

Gabor Mate takes us on an epic journey of discovery about how our emotional well-being, and our social connectivity (in short: how we live), is intimately intertwined with health, disease and addictions ... This riveting and beautifully written tale has profound implications for all of our lives, including the practice of medicine and mental health * Bessel van der Kolk, author of The Body Keeps the Score * Wise, sophisticated, rigorous and creative: an intellectual and compassionate investigation of who we are and who we may become * Tara Westover, author of Educated * A book literally everyone will be enriched by - a wise, profound and healing work that is the culmination of Dr Mat's many years of deep and painfully accumulated wisdom * Johann Hari, author of Stolen Focus * An astonishing achievement, epic in scope and yet profoundly down-to-earth and practical. I will read this book again and again * V (formerly Eve Ensler), author of The Vagina Monologues * Brilliant, compelling and groundbreaking. Gabor Mat offers us a way to bring clear seeing and a greatness of heart to the crisis of our times * Tara Brach, author of Radical Compassion * A book in which readers can seek refuge and solace during moments of profound personal and social crisis * Esther Perel, psychotherapist and author of Mating in Captivity * Gabor Mat's connections - between the intensely personal and the global, the spiritual and the medical, the psychological and the political - are bold, wise and deeply moral. He is a healer to be cherished * Naomi Klein, author of No Logo and The Shock Doctrine * A compelling book that will challenge your views and help lift the veil of illusion to what is truly happening in your mind and in your body * Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and Real Happiness * Gripping ... a powerful call for change in how we live with, love, understand, treat, and think about each other * Rebecca Solnit, author of Men Explaining Everything To Me *
