4.0 out of 5 stars A must read for the layman and the professional. March 17, 2000
Format:Hardcover
Prof. Falvo has produced a book that clearly outlines not only the medical concerns, but the very real psychological aspects of chronic illness that are frequently misunderstood. Specific examples are used throughout the book and it is quite readable to someone who is not a medical professional like myself. The author shares her insights and experience to provide the groundwork for trying new approaches.
The book also cites numerous references for someone who is interested in pursuing additional research. I can certainly recommend it for anyone interested in the topic.

5.0 out of 5 stars I needed it for class the review is about the seller November 1, 2013
By KJB
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book arrived quickly in perfect condition. It was sold listed in good condition but it was actually more like brand new.

The book itself was needed for class, not one I would order just because. With that being said the print is small and the pages are two columns of print on each page.

The information repeats over and over and over. Long read. Could omit 70% of the information and still contain enough information to fit the needs of a medical class.

This was a great price and arrived very quickly! This book was hardcover and looked brand new. Not to mention it was 30% of the price the college book store wanted for the paperback.
