From Publishers Weekly
Author and health educator Bean (Methods of Childbirth), along with Lyme disease awareness activist Fein, present the complete story of Lyme disease, a resilient and difficult-to-treat disease transmitted by deer ticks: its identification in 1975, the two-decade increase in reported cases (it's now "the fastest-growing infectious disease in America"), symptoms (which can be "arthritic, neurological, behavioral, cardiac, dermatological, muscular, or otherwise"), diagnosis and, most disturbingly, the disconnect between two powerful groups of physicians regarding its treatment. "Just as likely to be found in suburban yards as they are in woods and fields, or among coastal bushes and grass," the deer tick's ubiquity accounts for cases in 46 states in 2006 alone; alarmingly, "at least 10 percent" of contractors become chronically ill due to lack of treatment, which "remains remarkably unavailable" unless the bite is caught promptly. Occurring as both acute and chronic disease, Lyme has a cost to society of "about $2 billion a year" total; the authors' recommendations for avoiding exposure to deer ticks, as well as detailed information on diagnostic tests and pharmaceutical treatments, will prove useful to readers and medical personnel in Lyme-endemic regions.

"With summer approaching, this is a useful book for anyone planning to spend time outdoors. Recommended for public and consumer health libraries." --Library Journal
“A new book, called Beating Lyme: Understanding and Treating This Complex and Often Misdiagnosed Disease, provides insight into the arguments that supporters of the chronic Lyme viewpoint make in favor of aggressively treating the condition. The book recounts the experiences of those who say they have long-lasting and at times debilitating symptoms of the condition years after being bitten by a tick.” —U.S. News & World Report
“The authors’ recommendations for avoiding exposure to deer ticks, as well as detailed information on diagnostic tests and pharmaceutical treatments, will prove useful to readers and medical personnel in Lyme-endemic regions.” —Publishers Weekly
“Public health workers, teachers, parents, and those who suspect that they may be afflicted with Lyme disease must read this valuable book and share it with their medical practitioner. If the doctor proves resistant to the information, reader may avail themselves of other resources provided by the authors to obtain the care that will bring them relief.” —ForeWord Magazine

There is hardly anything really known about Lyme unfortunately and google gave me the worst kind of news. Its hard to stay positive when google thinks you're past help.
I got this book and had more knowledge about Lyme in three pages than google could provide within an hour of searching.
I hope you find help with understanding a little better, as I did with this book. And if you're fighting Lyme, know you're not alone. Keep fighting. Keep pushing. Keep positive.
All in all, I thought I knew a lot about Lyme and I learned a LOT from this book.
