Format: Paperback
If you buy just one book on CFIDS, make it this one. The authors cover just about every CFIDS symptom imaginable along with suggested treatments and the treatments' pros and cons. Added bonuses include a cataloging of medications and natural remedies used to treat CFIDS with notes on possible side effects. I found discussions of even my wackiest symptoms, those I thought no one could ever possibly understand (including the "sensory storm" which a previous reviewer mentions). The authors are CFIDS sufferers themselves, so reading the book is like talking to an extra-knowledgeable and empathetic friend. As a previous reviewer mentioned, this impressively researched and thorough book is a great one to bring along to the doctor.

I think that I have read them all and this is one of the better ones. If one cannot adequately desribe what a symptom is like to a health care provider, take this with you. For example the sensory "storm" on page 116 clearly defines in one paragraph a phenoma that the patient and physician can both understand. The pros and cons of each treatment possibility makes one a better informed consumer of health care. If you read this you will know what to expect.

When diagnosed with CFS, I didn't know anything about it. I immediately decided to learn all I could about this syndrome, and this book provided more information than I ever hoped for. The authors truly understand what it is like to have CFS, and absolutely validated my feelings and symptoms. The book offers information about prescription drugs, herbal remedies and vitamins that is thorough and helpful. I am glad to report that I am feeling much better after taking some of the recommended supplements, which are not mentioned in any of the other literature I found on this subject. If you are going to buy one book about CFS, this is the one to get. It's the only one you'll need.

This book is one of the most highly informative books. If more patients read it, we would be fielding fewer questions! Gail Kansky President, National CFIDS Foundation, Inc.

This book is great and should be part of your CFS library. However, it was published in 1998, a new edition needs to come with upated information. There is plenty of revised and new information that has occured with CFS in the last 7 years.

My doctor recommended this book to me to better understand my chronic illness. (he even carries a copy with him.) It turned out to be the best book money I ever spent. It is the best overall informative and understandable book about CFS that I have added to my collection in the five years since my diagnosis. It is a must for those individuals trying to learn more about what is happening to their bodies and coping techniques to deal with this chronic and debilitationg disease.

This is a detailed, concise guide to CFS. Very useful in explaining all of the symptoms, and includes both pharmaceutical and herbal treatments. If you believe you are suffering from chronic fatigue, this book will answer the questions you have.
