Ce livre défend la thèse selon laquelle les malades devraient être coresponsables de leur traitement. Norman Cousins y raconte en effet le miracle de sa guérison (il était atteint d'une spondylarthrite ankylosante) due à une volonté de vivre bien arrêtée, aux vertus du rire et à l'administration intraveineuse de fortes doses d'acide ascorbique. Des développements sur l'effet placebo, la longévité, la relation médecin-malade et la douleur viennent compléter le récit
Dr. Schweitzer of Lambaréné by Norman Cousins( Book )

35 editions published between 1958 and 1973 in 8 languages and held by 2,111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dr. Schweitzer of Lambarene is in the nature of a personal appreciation of one of the towering figures of the twentieth century. Written on the basis of firsthand knowledge and observation, it is an informal, intimate account of Albert Schweitzer at work and in repose. Norman Cousins attempts to convey some idea of the burden Schweitzer has taken upon himself and why he chose to take it. He also tells of Schweitzer's deep concern of the natural rights and the safety of the human community on earth." Taken from inside front jacket

"The photographs in this book are divided into three groups. The "illustrative" pieces, drawn from popular magazines such as Life and Look, reflect those magazines' emphasis on eye-catching color and celebrities. The "documentary" photos, visual equivalents of dog bites man, offer photojournalism's emphasis on dramatic action. Finally, the "expressive" shots offer the self-consciously "art" photography of Ansel Adams, Elliot Porter, and others."--Library Journal
