Chicken Soup for the Soul has gone to Harvard. Four world-class doctors from Harvard Medical School are the latest contributors to Chicken Soup for the Soul health books set to release this month. The books, similar to the series’ trademark formula, are filled with everyday people’s personal tales, and packed with doctors’ advice and medical know-how.
Watch the Harvard doctors with Chicken Soup for the Soul Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Amy Newmark discuss why these reads are not your typical self-help books:
“With this collaboration with Chicken Soup at Harvard Medical School, we wove really great cutting-edge medical advice into the books and with the stories,” said Dr. Julie Silver, assistant professor at Harvard Medical School in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. “That is a very powerful combination.”
All of the books will be available May 22, 2012. Pre-order your copy by clicking book images below!
