PAIN REMEDIES (Rodale, 1997; Dell paperback, 1998)
Drawing on the advice of almost 150 leading health experts, Pain Remedies contains over 1,000 quick and easy self-care solutions for complete, head-to-toe pain relief. Arranged alphabetically by condition, from Angina to Wrist Pain, the book will help you treat any pain that crops up, from little ouches to big aches. From the introduction by Willibald Nagler, M.D. of Cornelll University Medical College: "A treasure chest of sound, essential advice...No matter where you hurt, you'll find a tip or two that can help you feel better fast."
A DIFFERENT KIND OF HEALING (Tarcher/Putnam, 1993, paperback, 1994). My friend and coauthor, Oscar Janiger, M.D., who passed away in 2001, provided medical expertise and a historical overview. I conducted dozens of interviews with physicians. Together, we put together a portrait of how, why and when doctors use unconventional treatments. With "alternative medicine" now in the mainstream, the book offers a fascinating perspective.
EVERYBODY'S GUIDE TO NATURAL SLEEP (Tarcher/Putnam, 1990). A revised and somewhat condensed version of 1978's "Natural Sleep" (see below), with a new introduction and updated information.
THE BABINSKI REFLEX (Tarcher/Putnam, 1990). An attempt to have fun with language and spice up our vocabularies with terms I labeled "metaffects"--specialized terms from science and other areas of life that can be applied, metaphorically, to everyday life. Terms like the Coolidge Effect, the Uncertainty Principle, and the Fiddle Factor--71 in all. From the cover: "Guaranteed to expand your mind, enlarge your spirit, and enrich your conversations."
THE STRATEGIC METALS INVESTMENT HANDBOOK (Holt, 1983; McGraw-Hill trade paperback, 1985). At the time, there was a great deal of interest among investors in strategic metals as a commodity--and among geopolitical experts in the competition for access to these vital resources. My coauthor, Mitchell Posner, handled the investment info, and I handled the global picture. The book is outdated as an investment guide, but its geopolitics is still of interest.
THE SMALL BUSINESS GUIDE TO BORROWING MONEY (McGraw-Hill, 1980). My coauthor, Richard Rubin, was a New York based consultant. The book, which was highly successful, guides a small business owner step-by-step through the loan process. Much of it is, frankly, out of date, but a good deal still pertains.
HOW TO MANAGE YOUR BOSS (Rawson Wade, 1980; Whatever Publishing paperback, 1982; Ballantine paperback, 1985). This was my first collaboration. My coauthor, Christopher Hegarty, was a well-known management consultant and motivational speaker. The book has outstanding advice for dealing effectively with different kinds of bosses.

EXECUTIVE HEALTH (McGraw-Hill, 1978; paperback, 1979). A BusinessWeek book. Introduction by stress research pioneer Hans Selye. Cited as one of top ten business books of 1978 by Library Journal, this was a groundbreaking guide to personal health care and stress management for executives. While volumes of research has been done since, the book is surprisingly relevant and still practical.
NATURAL SLEEP (Rodale Press, 1978; trade paperback, 1979; Bantam mass market paperback, 1980). A friend named Daniel Kaufman had the good idea to do a book on natural remedies for insomnia. He helped research it; I wrote it. Still an excellent sourcebook for anyone who has trouble sleeping and wants to avoid the side effects of sleep drugs.
THE TM PROGRAM: The Way to Fulfillment (Holt, 1976)
Long out of print, this was my first book. It's a simple, clear explanation of Transcendental Meditation and its benefits, from the viewpoint of a young, enthusiastic, and somewhat naive TM teacher. For used copies, try abebooks.com.
