Basically Dr. Goldstein treats FMS as a central nervous system disorder, rather than a collection of unrelated, marginally treatable symptoms.
After reading this book, I travelled to his practice in California. After ten years of living with disabling fibromyalgia flare ups, Dr. Goldstein ran several drug tests to correct my brain chemistry and over the course of four days, completely eliminated my symptoms. I have now been symptom free for two months.
This book delineates many of the drugs Dr. Goldstein was using in his protocol as of 1996; he has since added more drugs as they have become available. His text describes specifically how the! drugs work and why. Although none of the drugs in his protocol are currently used in the treatment of fibromyalgia, they are all FDA approved. The reason these drugs aren't used in treating FMS, is his basic theory of FMS as a CNS disorder, differs from how most physicians who treat this disorder view it.
This book is worth the effort required to read it for anyone with FMS who is looking to get their life back.

He is out to make money on the sick, IMHO.
His theory is all hot air. I do not know of one person helped by him.
