It covers all types of illnesses,explains the symptoms,treatments and prevention.
Great value - highly recommended.
However, because the info on my disease ME/CFIDS (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/ Chronic Fatigue Immune Dysfunction Syndrome) is a negative-five-star I am going to rate this only two stars.
I really don't like rating this book so low and definitely understand anyone thinking it inappropriate to rate it so low considering the overall excellent content. After all, the ME section is only one section of very many. However, the amount of iatrogenic morbidity caused by this sort of egregious misinformation on ME is so tremendous, I think it is important to draw attention to it with a two star rating. Pls forgive me if you disagree.
Editors: please make the section accurate by consulting the ME/CFS Canadian Consensus Criteria and the 2011 ME International Consensus Criteria and the 2012 IACFS/ME Primer (and me if you need more info) and I will of course be elated to rate the manual five stars.
There are many patently invalid statements here such as "[s]ome studies have suggested infection with the Epstein-Barr virus... or HIV as a possible cause of CFS. However, current research indicates that these viruses probably do not cause this syndrome." p. 2109.Read more ›
