Format: Paperback
The Bakers Dozen and the Lunatic Fringe is worth EVERY penny and more!!!!! This is the book every Lyme patient or friend of Lyme patients have been waiting for. The information and research in this book is astounding!!! So much more than what you find in other books. Look at the pictures on page 52 and tell me that mosquitoes can't transmit this. Read through chapter 9 to see WHY 1,000's of 1,000's of people are been misdiagnosed with current blood tests. Every chapter has golden nuggets.

This is THE Lyme book to get to understand this horrible illness. One that myself and my family have been fighting for years. And yes, we also have a library of Lyme books in our house. Thank you SO much PJ Langoff for writing this incredibly comprehensive book. I am recommending it to everyone!!!

IMHO, should be rated 10 stars (respective to amazon's top rating of 5).

Comprehensive scientific journalism - the author has laboriously and meticulously put together all the relevant references to tell the story and shed light on what is currently known on the disease both clinically and in research, and what is currently suspected or questioned, and why. Yes, including authoritative research sources. Examines both sides of the controversy and what their arguments are based on, in depth. This is not light layperson reading - reads more like a reference text in laying out the whole lyme context and controversy in the U.S. Lays out precisely why the argument (IDSA standpoint) against the existence of long-standing lyme organisms infection is junk science, and the still-overlooked professional conflicts of interest among the dozen influencers of that standpoint which have been brought to light.

If there's anyone you care about who has been diagnosed with lyme, this is the reference you should reach for first for this scientific, informed, intelligent, thorough and rational collection of information.

Should be required reading for all existing doctors and at all med schools - which is unlikely, since which interests fund the med schools' research? And which interests are highly lucrative for medical research professionals outside of universities? The root of the problem is that the business paradigms which underlie the medical practice and research professions are brought into question within the lyme controversy, because of the illogic of the IDSA standpoint...

I have been waiting for this book to come out-and I am not disappointed! The years of careful research are reflected in a well written book that presents the research and politics of Lyme disease from the unique view held by a Lyme patient.I particularly recommend the section from pages 398 to 408 for a perspective on the internet harassment of Lyme activists. This book is an interesting read as well as an important addition to my ever enlarging Lyme reference library. My only quibble is a minor one-consider an index for the next edition.
