Super Joy

Paul Pearsall, Author Doubleday Books $18.95 (339p) ISBN 978-0-385-24459-6
Author of Super Marital Sex and Super Immunity , psychiatrist Pearsall here emphasizes the rewards of ``joyology,'' describing attitudes that can help one slough off depression and ennui. There is a specific ``Joy message'' in individual chapters that address sufferers of stress, lack of love, illness, even losses caused by divorce or death. A section on AIDS includes advice on strengthening the body's immune system. Each subject is accompanied by quizzes that are intended to help readers recognize their individual physical and spiritual needs. Pearsall is, as ever, cloyingly upbeat. Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club alternates. (October)
