    I tend to think that if someone is going to learn about TMS, reading one of Dr. Sarno's books is the best place to start. It seems like I gain new perspectives every time I re-read one of his books. I was a little curios as to which one of his books people found to be the most helpful. Mind Over Back Pain, Healing Back Pain, the Mindbody Prescription and the Divided Mind are all are somewhat similar, they do vary quite a bit. How would you compare and contrast the different books and how have they helped you?

    Just getting into the Forums, so I thought I'd start at the end and work my way up to the now.
    I liked Healing Back Pain alot- it was the first book I read however I really liked Divided Mind too.
    Especially the Daily Study Program in that book.

    Mindbody Prescription was the first one I read and it helped a lot--I like that he covered so many conditions including mine (headaches, foot & leg issues). I like Divided Mind too but it felt more theoretical to me. I've listened to the audio book of Healing Back Pain and read part of the book.

    Healing Back Pain is certainly the most accessible of Dr. Sarno's books and bears careful re-reading after you've read his more theoretical works like The Mind Body Prescription and the Divided Mind. I think I'd recommend reading all three in their chronological publication sequence, but re-reading Healing Back Pain again and again seems to reenforce his main ideas.
