개인적으로 이 책이 지닌 힘은 철학자 토마스 한나의 문장력에 있다고 생각한다. 그는 바니, 제임스, 루이스, 할리, 알렉산더와 같이, 주변에서 흔히 볼 수 있는 '감각운동기억상실증' 몸을 지닌 이들을 매의 눈으로 관찰하고 소마틱스 원리에 맞춰 교정한다. 그 과정에서 얻은 깨달음을 인간의 보편적인 문제로 부각시키고, 소마와 소마의 문제를 정의한다. 덧붙여 현대 문명을 살아가는 이들이 지닌 '노화에 대한 편견'을 깨뜨리고 '자기책임'을 묻는다. 비근한 일상을 통해 인간 존재가 나아갈 방향을 한 권의 책에 담으려는 의도를 명료한 문장으로, 철학자의 관점에서 전하려 한다. 대단한 책이다. 소마틱스 분야를 단지 테크닉의 집합이 아니라 철학적 영역으로 간주할 수도 있는 것은 전적으로 토마스 한나의 공이다. 그의 의도가 얼마나 성공적이었는지 판단하는 것은 독자의 몫이며, 번역 과정에서 생긴 의미 왜곡에 대한 허물은 역자에게 귀속된다. 여건이 되시는 분들은 원서의 문장을 한 줄 한 줄 곱씹어 보길 권한다. 이 책을 읽는 모든 이들의 정기신(몸, 에너지, 마음)이 건강하길 기원한다
보건학적인 관점에서 볼 때, 이미 발생한 질병을 치료하는 것보다는 발생하지 않도록 예방하는 것이 가장 효과적인 방법이라는 점은 쉽게 공감할 수 있는 사실입니다. 감염질환은 개인 차원에 국한되지 않고 다른 사람에게 전파될 수 있으며 집단감염으로 발전할 수 있기 때문에 적절한 관리 수단을 이용한 예방이 중요합니다.
