This book is like a diverse menu at a good restaurant, where you may sample and select what appeals to you. Digesting the material will take effort, but like the title suggests - it is a fight. Don't kid yourself - making real life changes, as outlined by the information and charts in the book, will never happen by itself. However, with a carefully advised choice of this book's strategies, a person can make meaningful changes to better cope with fatigue - now.
Perhaps, it is best to not attempt to absorb all of the tactics at once. Trying to follow an outline to re-structure your entire routine can be overwhelming and exhausting - making the point about fatigue hit home. This book should empower people with MS to create new habits and not merely be a witness to progressive impediments. The key to success of the offered strategies may be to have an informed discussion with an appropriate medical professional and construct a personal template to gain control over fatigue. Having a supportive person to reinforce the set changes may also be vital to making a true change in personal habits, maximizing the benefit of the book's tactics. With patience and well-targeted persistence, this can be done.
Lowenstein calls it out, acknowledging the burden of the MS fatigue that you have been enduring and gives you permission to do something about it for yourself - book in hand.
ummm, since i wrote this review, i consulted with my physician who prescribed medication that very effectively manages fatigue, for which i'm immensely grateful.
