Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1978, Vol 23(11), 960–961. Reviews the book, Beyond Biofeedback by Elmer Green and Alyce Green (see record 1979-00452-000). The authors' opening statement indicates that this book is not a scientific document, or a review of biofeedback and self-awareness training programs, or an autobiography, or a travelogue, or a long essay on philosophy and metaphysics-but it is partially all of these. Scientific documentation is totally lacking, as is a critical approach to biofeedback literature, which they selectively review. This book is an autobiography of some length and each author's contribution is nicely segregated by using different types. It is also a descriptive travelogue in parts, written in a scientific style. It is not a book one would assign to a reading list and the scientific community will not find it a source of hypotheses or exciting new ideas.
