KIRKUS REVIEW

Would you believe that ""when you run your first six miles at a five minute pace, you may have simultaneous breakthroughs into altered states of awareness, ranging from the experience of cosmic consciousness to heightened powers of telepathy, clairvoyance and even out-of-body states""? Or that Austin Gontang, a Gestalt therapist in San Diego, believes that running expedites therapy because it brings out repressed body feelings and enables people to be more honest about their emotions? We don't. Nor do we believe that running fosters psychic healing, that spiritual athletes are ""the New Elite,"" or that you can bring about the simultaneous transformation of the body and the mind by jogging. But anyone attuned will have a good time with this, the ultimate agglomeration of all the psychobabble peddled in the last ten, me-oriented years.
