This fascinating memoir is about Nick Duerden’s long period of ill health, and how he was forced to plunge into the often bewildering ­ but increasingly blossoming ­ world of alternative therapy in pursuit of a cure. He learned yoga, how to meditate, to breathe properly, to face his fears and manage the new anxieties those very fears had done so well to engender. Over the course of three years, Nick's lifelong cynicism is gradually replaced by an open eagerness to try anything, if not quite everything and in doing so, he starts on the pathway back to health.
