And you do not have to agree with every line, but many are very useful.
Since it is obvious how many hundreds and thousands of hours were involved in writing this, I hope she has not lost too much.
Selling it for te current price will hardly offer firewood.
Fun and serious ideas in this book. Never a bore and creative writer.
To those who care to post comments outside the scope of a qualified and honest book review, this book contains history that no other resource or the media will dare to publish. Not bad coming from an author who is herself a disabled Lyme patient..... and someone who earns a meager living while spending thousands of hours compiling, writing, editing, proofing, and producing excellent books that physicians, researchers, legal experts, and patients LOVE-books that are frequently worked on from the author's bedside! PJ Langhoff has been hired by experts around the world to work on various legal projects including a high-profile anti-trust case, and two documentary films about Lyme disease, because PJ knows her subject and her books are sold around the world.
Anyone who feels that $36 will buy any amount of beneficial antibiotics might share their pharmacy's name, because this Lyme patient lives on disability, and neither steals money from the pockets of destitute Lyme patients, nor profits from book sales -- proceeds from sales go directly to Lyme patients to help them pay for their diagnostic tests when they are unable to do so.
Not bad for a $36.00 price tag, and not bad for a disabled Lyme patient who could pocket the relatively few pennies she does earn, but doesn't.
Like AIDS, it will take the many people who will get infected via blood transfusions to get litigious (no, it's not checked for by the Red Cross)...sad.
But here is a book that is not written by a best selling author that may be able to help some struggling, Lyme-plagued soul whose insidious disease has taken everything from him. Yet this book for the struggling, broke Lyme patient is $36 for Kindle. Yes, that's right--$$36.00 for an electronic file to download to your Kindle,
Nice work ripping off the poor, sick, and suffering Lyme folk. $36 can buy quite a few antibiotics for the sufferers. I think it is unethical to put a $36 price tag on a Kindle electronic book, but it is even worse to fleece the pockets of desperate sick people.
