A book reviewed entitled "Health First: The Fine Art of Living," contained several references to Christian Science that call for correction.

Christian Science and mental suggestion have positively nothing in common, asseverations of outsiders to the contrary notwithstanding. The Christian Scientist heals the sick by knowing the unreality of sickness, on the basis that evil has no reality because perfection underlies all that is real. The mental suggestionist, on the other hand, tries to heal by persuading his patients to admit they are well even though both he and they firmly believe in the reality of sickness. Mental suggestion may sometimes appear to heal the sick; but, obviously, the ailment is liable to reappear at any time because of the patient's abiding belief in the power of evil.
