Format: Paperback
If you've been diagnosed with Chiari Malformation, this book will assist you in every way imaginable. Not only does the author give you an extensive background on what it is, but he walks you through from diagnosis to hopeful outcomes. The story at the beginning of Chapter 8 lends some hope, whether you are just diagnosed or have been dealing with Chiari for years. Unlike many doctor's who write about health conditions, the author is a Chiari sufferer as well and writes this book with imput from his own experience. As any Chiari or Syringomyelia sufferer well knows, sometimes its seems no one can relate to the pain and frustration you face everyday. Well this author can! Not only has he suffered from the effects of Chiari and Syringomyelia, but he has devoted much of his time in educating others and helping them to make more informed decisions. Definitely a must read!! I read that there may also be a book in the future about Syringomyelia (I have this disorder as well) as I've learned that they sometimes go hand in hand. I plan on passing this book around to members of my family, so that they may better understand what I am living with, and travel along side me in my journey with knowledge, not simply as observers. Thank You Mr. Labuda for this valuable weapon in MY battle with Chiari.

I was diagnosed and had decompression surgery in 2003. Five years later I still struggle with headaches. I read anything that I can get my hands on that has to do with Chiari. This by far is the best book written on Chiari that I have read. I am going to make everyone in my family read it so that they have a better understanding of what I go through. Rick did a really wonderful job writing things so that everyone can understand.

This is an excellent book packed full of info. Wish I had been able to read it when I was first diagnosed. Gives technical info and info from the patient's perspective. Because this is a large book, it is a bit much to expect family and friends to read it, so I recommend you also get Dr. Oro's book The Chiari Book: A Guide for Patients, Families, and Health Care Providers.

My daughter was diagnosed with Chiari a few weeks ago. I am grateful to this author for his extensive research, along with his personal experience with the disease, which he shares with others in this book. If you have been affected by Chiari, or anyone you know has, or if you are in the medical profession, then you need to read this book. The author's web site, also called "Conquer Chiari" is the best source on the web to learn about Chiari and to meet others who have it.

Format: Paperback
It's almost 2 years ago now since my 15 yr old son was diagnosed with chiari and in this time I have been very frustrated with the medical people he has seen. I believed that some of his Acquired Brain Injury symptoms and problems may have in fact been coming from his chiari and after reading most of this book I feel that I am justified in thinking this way. Thankfully my son is not experiencing symptoms which need surgery at this stage but if he does get worse then I feel that this book provides much more information than I have been able to get from the neurosurgeon and other specialists we have consulted so far. I am so glad I purchased this book and would recommend it to anyone who needs to know more about chiari malformation.

I am 49 and have been symptomatic for 25 years. I had severe headaches for 11 years before being diagnosed at age 36. I had surgery in 1995. There was little info back then. No one understood how I felt. I bought this book a few months ago and it is wonderful and informative and it is easy reading. I highly recommend this book for anyone dealing with Chiari. It is great for the chiari patient as well as family members and medical personell. While reading many of the pages I cried because it was like they were writing about me. My family never understood what I was going through, although they were very supportive. I wish there would have been information like this available in 1995. I have felt like I have been in my own little world all these years. In Northern Ontario where I live there are no specialist so I have been on my own. I had to travel to Southern Ontario for sugery.
