Praise for the Book
“The book was outstanding. One of those few I believe every soul on earth should read.”
Legendary Twin Cities Radio Broadcaster, WCCO-AM
“The Wisdom of the Healing Wound had to be written now because of the role it plays in the current paradigm shift. In his handbook for healing, Dr. Knighton offers what many of us are waiting for impatiently—new, accurate information. After undergoing an extremely invasive surgery, I especially appreciated this breakthrough, accessible advice about healing wounds and then, surprisingly, how to learn from them, too, whether the wound is physical, psychological, spiritual, and inevitably all three. It’s time doctors do what they swore to in their oath. Thanks, Dr. Knighton, for leading the way.”
Bestselling author of eighteen books, including Codependent No More, The New Codependency, The Language of Letting Go, The Grief Club, and Make Miracles in Forty Days
“Dr. Knighton has examined a universal event—injury and our innate reaction to it—and finds in this process a little-appreciated link between our bodies and our minds. The best description of physical and psychological injury and repair for the layman that I have seen.”
—Thomas K. Hunt, M.D.
Former Director of the Wound Healing Research Laboratory, University of California, San Francisco, School of Medicine
“The Wisdom of the Healing Wound will help you heal better, faster, and more completely, no matter what kind of wound—physical, spiritual, or psychological—you have. It’s loaded with practical advice, soulful honesty, and fascinating information about the human body and the human psyche. Dr. David Knighton is a healer extraordinaire.”
Comedian, game-show host, and author of the bestselling Dear Dad: Letters from an Adult Child and Goodbye Jumbo . . . Hello Cruel World
“As a distinguished surgeon, inventor and entrepreneur, Dr. Knighton has helped thousands of patients get on the pathway to healing. In his captivating new book, Dr. Knighton combines medical expertise, transparent story-telling and a pastoral heart that will help thousands more. If it is true, as Dr. Knighton writes, that “every wound creates an open space,” then this book may just be that gentle wound we all need to open our minds, hearts and souls to “the wonder and beauty of healing.” Thanks, David, for writing and living this book.”
