Why Do People Get Ill?

Darian Leader and I are bringing out a book with Hamish Hamilton (Penguin) next month - Why Do People Get Ill?. As the blurb asks:

Have you ever wondered why people get ill when they do? How does the mind affect the body? Why does modern medicine seem to have so little interest in the unconscious processes that can make us fall ill? And what, if anything, can we do about it? "Why Do People Get Ill?" lucidly explores the relationship between our minds and our bodies. Containing remarkable case studies, cutting-edge research and startling new insights into why we fall ill, this intriguing and thought-provoking book should be read by anyone who cares about their own health and that of other people.

Last week we were interviewed and photographed by the New Scientist, and Darian was interviewed by Harpers. Extracts of the book will appear in newspapers and the magazine Psychologies.
