7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By G. Miller on September 13, 2005
Format: Paperback
The medical aspects are dealt with fairly accessibly, but troubles me is the author's tone throughout the book - patronising, and his tendency to make statements that belie an extraordinary ignorance of human beings. What kind of weirdo would write a sentence like "....of course, the death of a child is always tragic, even when it is expected"?

There are a few such pronouncements in the book, but the whole thing is saturated with that strange arrogance that only doctors seem to manage - I think it comes from dealing so much with "the sick" and "suffering" family members, that they start thinking that doctors are some higher breed of "healthy" humans who are on earth to offer hope to poor unfortunates.

I would not recommend this book for parents.

This book uses easy to understand language to explain the complexities of this group of disorders. It is a good first book for individuals and families faced with the likelihood or reality of a muscular dystrophy diagnosis.

It was very clear, but since there is constant new info. coming out all the time maybe something newly published would be more up to date. Maybe!

I was diagnosed with LGMD three years ago, this book brought many details together in one place for me to learn. It gave me insight to understand that a lot of the things I was going through were very normal. Recommend this book to anyone or a family member that has had a recent diagnosis.
