KIRKUS REVIEW

Autogenic, otherwise known as ""concentrative relaxation,"" cannot be dismissed out of hand or rather the right arm you want to become heavier. . . heavier. . . heavier. . . principle one in lecturer-practitioner Lindemann's program which is based on the work of one J. H. Schultz, 40 years in use in Europe. There have been variant methods here as Lindemann admits (i.e., Edmund Jacobson's Progressive Relaxation) as well as affiliated concepts particularly dealing with stress and psychosomatic ailments (insomnia, allergies, colds, intestinal problems and of course heart). The exercises, a form of autohypnosis, are simple and so is the book's ""scenario"" in two or three page chapters. Certainly no one can question the desirability of giving up cigarettes or alcohol (altogether?) or drugs even if you wonder whether the regimen will always work in making a wart disappear or increasing your bust size. But it can't hurt to compose yourself. . . . ""I am completely calm. . . . I am completely calm. . . . It breathes me.
