"An exemplary and eloquently written story that makes it easy for nonbelievers in intuition to believe. You must read this book." - Psychology Today
Now with a new foreword from the author, New York Times bestselling author Dr. Judith Orloff tells her remarkable life story and teaches you how to recognize and trust your own intuitive gifts to improve your life-and the lives of those around you.
In this updated edition, Dr. Orloff reflects on her career and the sea change that modern medicine and psychiatry have experienced since Second Sight was first published. She expands her earlier ideas and further explores intuition's role in maintaining physical health and emotional well-being, using examples from her own and her patients' lives. This is both a remarkable self-portrait of one woman's journey toward the acceptance of intuition as a therapeutic tool, and a comprehensive look at how you, too, can develop your intuition, transform your health, and revolutionize your everyday life.
"Orloff is a true visionary. She is the kind of physician we wish we all had." - Caroline Myss, Ph.D., author of Sacred Contracts
"Second Sight is a page turner...controversial. It shares the struggles and successes of a courageous physician who fights against a skeptical medical system to validate the power of intuition. You will find a new friend in Judith as her writing is as intimate as if she was talking to you in her living room." -Joan Borysenko, Ph.D., author of Mending the Mind, Minding the Spirit
"Judith Orloff is a seriously talented storyteller, and her book moves like a thriller...Forgive me this moment of intuition, but this book feels right." -Jesse Kornbluth, Huffington Post
"Orloff tried to stave her intuitions off during medical school until she found herself 'trapped' in a profession that was itself dependent on dispensing drugs to silence the spirit...To listen only to the mind and not the soul is, Orloff believes, a form of insanity"
