This book is intended to give the reader authentic information about his welfare. It looks at man as a whole and also takes into consideration his interaction with his surroundings.
The book has 22 chapters dealing with different aspects of living, but there is an undercurrent of the unifying thought that man is built to last without any extraneous assistance.
The author argues that Human body works as a whole. There is very close liaison between the working of the different systems in the body. To give a concrete example, the heart rate is enslaved to the breathing rhythm which, in turn, is locked on to brain function and so on. In short, every part of the body is enslaved to other parts. Order, rhythm and equilibrium have no meaning in human health at all. Health is a state of chaos in the true sense. It is resilient and arrhythmic and consequently robust.
