    Hi everyone,

    I am happy to announce that Georgie Oldfield, MCSP has donated three ebook copies of her new book, Chronic Pain: Your Key to Recovery to our nonprofit for us to give away to members of our forum!

    In private correspondence, a TMS therapist wrote about the book:
    "I'm almost finished reading Georgie's book and found it to be a very easy read that holds your attention with plenty of practical advise and case studies…I am usually a slow reader but it didn't take me long to get through the book as it held my attention and flowed easily. I would highly recommend it for patients and practitioners alike."​

    An Amazon.com reviewer gave the book five stars:
    "The author acknowledges her book is based on the work of Dr. John Sarno, and explains the role that emotional stress and turmoil play in chronic pain. The great thing about this book is the last chapter and the appendix where she gives very practical and easy methods to deal with emotional stress. I have had chronic migraines, etc. for almost 20 years and have found very little help in traditional medical treatments. I saw a HUGE reduction in pain right away using these methods -- thank you Georgie Oldfield!!"​

    On our forum, Enrique wrote in this post that he "really likes it so far." Sienna also highly recommends the book.

    We will be giving away one book every Monday for the next three weeks. The first drawing will be held Monday, July 21. When it happens, perhaps one of our musicians can supply us with a drum-roll.

    To enter the drawing, just reply to this thread, saying why you would like the book. A winner will be chosen randomly.

    This thread is for entries into the drawing only. Reviews should go in the following thread:
    http://www.tmswiki.org/forum/threads/new-book-chronic-pain-your-key-to-recovery.4794/

    (Don't worry – if you put your reply in the wrong place, a moderator will be happy to move it for you.)

    Thank you, Georgie, for writing your book and for sharing it with us!


    Update: This drawing is now closed. Congratulations to @Msunn, @Hiawatha922, and @Pandagirl , the three winners!

    This is Awesome, I would love to win Georgie Oldfields Book. I have been a fan of Sirpa and all of her wisdom for over two years now. If I can get more wisdom then I want it, you can never learn enough is my way of thinking and each individual tms book has its own unique style of wisdom. This is a great thread forest, and thank you Georgie Oldfield.

    All of the interest in the book prompted me to buy it. I read most of it in the last 24 hours. It is excellent. Fortunate are the patients who have had the opportunity to work with Ms. Oldfield.

    I remember reading on the Forum a posting from a member who mentioned how valuable Georgie's words were in their healing process. I would love to read the book.
