Ever since "The power of Positive thinking" was published there have been anecdotal books on the subject of a positive outlook. Now Dr. Tindle formalizes these findings by telling us this truth based on empirical evidence and research finding. More importantly she tells us how we can go about changing our attitudes to one of positivity thereby transforming our health and aging. ( )

A great guide for both patients and practitioners

I read this book from the perspective of someone who's had to learn the importance of a positive outlook the hard way, after years of struggle with a debilitating chronic medical condition. Dr. Tindle recounts the story of her own health problems early in life, as well as stories of working with patients as a practicing physician, so she ably brings both perspectives to the writing of this book.

Drawing on a wide range of recent research, she examines the impact our mental attitude can have on our health and aging, right down to the cellular level. For instance, studies have shown higher, longer-lasting, levels of inflammation associated with negative outlooks leading to faster aging at the cellular level, such that the term inflammaging has been coined to describe the phenomenon. (As someone all too familiar with the joys of chronic inflammation, I can attest to this...curse you, excessive interleukin-6!)

Thankfully, she also gives strategies for improving your outlook, and thus your health and aging in the process. Most of this material is quite good. Some of it will be familiar to those who've read about positive psychology in recent years (e.g. Martin Seligman's Learned Optimism), or even some of the better stuff in the self-help genre (say, Napoleon Hill's Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude), but the perspective on health and aging Dr. Tindle focuses on here makes it well worth reading even to those already sold on the importance of a positive outlook in general. On the whole, Up is intelligently written and should be of interest to doctors, patients, or just the general reader interested in how their mental outlook can affect their physical well-being.
