The book is what it claims to be and is well laid out. The information is there - using articles from the 80's into the 2000's. You can see the available research over a long period of time. Also, there are plenty of cited articles so that you can do further reading if you choose to take the time to go to a library that has access to medical journals. All positives.
BUT - 1) This book is about the size of a Cooking Light magazine, but bound in hard cover like your elementary school library books. 2) I had the benefit of growing up in a medical household, so this has been useful for me. This book would not be all that well suited to someone who was just looking for general information on autoimmune issues. "The Autoimmune Connection" would be better suited to general audiences w/ no medical background. 3) I wish the authors didn't feel the need to speculate in a sentence or two about why certain studies cited don't always agree with each other. That is the nature of the beast, and there is no need for trying to 'explain things away' with speculation. 4) I paid about $45 for this book NEW using one of Amazon's marketplace sellers, and feel that THAT is about the 'right price' - NOT the $200+ asking price.
