Description
An inspiring and profoundly enlightening exploration of one doctor's discovery of how hope can changethe course of illnessSince the time of the ancient Greeks, human beings have believed that hope is essential to life. Now, in this groundbreaking book, Harvard Medical School professor and New Yorker staff writer Jerome Groopman shows us why.The search for hope is most urgent at the patient's bedside. The Anatomy of Hope takes us there, bringing us into the lives of people at pivotal moments when they reach for and find hope—or when it eludes their grasp. Through these intimate portraits, we learn how to distinguish true hope from false, why some people feel they are undeserving of it, and whether we should ever abandon our search.Can hope contribute to recovery by changing physical well-being? To answer this hotly debated question, Groopman embarked on an investigative journey to cutting-edge laboratories where researchers are unraveling an authentic biology of hope. There he finds a scientific basis for understanding the role of this vital emotion in the outcome of illness.Here is a book that offers a new way of thinking about hope, with a message for all readers, not only patients and their families. "We are just beginning to appreciate hope's reach," Groopman writes, "and have not defined its limits. I see hope as the very heart of healing."From the Hardcover edition.

Since the time of the ancient Greeks, human beings have believed that hope is essential to life. Now, in this groundbreaking book, Harvard Medical School professor and New Yorker staff writer Jerome Groopman shows us why.
The search for hope is most urgent at the patient's bedside. The Anatomy of Hope takes us there, bringing us into the lives of people at pivotal moments when they reach for and find hope—or when it eludes their grasp. Through these intimate portraits, we learn how to distinguish true hope from false, why some people feel they are undeserving of it, and whether we should ever abandon our search.
Can hope contribute to recovery by changing physical well-being? To answer this hotly debated question, Groopman embarked on an investigative journey to cutting-edge laboratories where researchers are unraveling an authentic biology of hope. There he finds a scientific basis for understanding the role of this vital emotion in the outcome of illness.
Here is a book that offers a new way of thinking about hope, with a message for all readers, not only patients and their families. "We are just beginning to appreciate hope's reach," Groopman writes, "and have not defined its limits. I see hope as the very heart of healing."

      • content: "The Anatomy of Hope sings with compassion and honesty."
      • premium: False
      • source: Sherwin B. Nuland, M.D.
      • content: "This book is the guide and the promise that all of us--patients and doctors alike--have been seeking, in the quest for hope amid the trials and fears of illness."
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Focusing on hope, and how it might be a contributing factor in the healing process, Dr. Groopman writes from some thirty years of clinical practice. Paul Michael has a calm, reassuring voice befitting a doctor. As Michael chronicles Dr. Groopman's development from medical student to doctor, working in a field of chronic illness, one is invited to witness the physician's growing understanding of the phenomenon of hope. Michael's use of inflection and tone for each character allows us to fully experience Dr. Groopman's personal epiphany about the vital part hope plays. A reminder about the importance of optimism in our daily lives. R.S.E. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine

      • content: Jerome Groopman's voice is rich with intensity and conviction as he describes the transformational experiences he has lived through. Groopman has spent years working with the critically ill; he also spent years in chronic pain himself after back surgery. This combination gives him perspective; both sympathy and empathy fill his voice as he describes his interactions with patients, so much so that at times it's hard to listen without wincing. His pace is measured as he strives to balance these personal touches with his scientific training. His serious but accessible tone is itself a sign of how well he has succeeded in balancing his personal connection to his patients with his professional responsibilities. G.T.B.
