Editor reviews

This is a comprehensive guide for anyone suffering from CFS, the author of which is himself a sufferer of some 15 years. As a result of the author's personal experience the book is written in a very compassionate and understanding style which is easily conveyed to the reader. With an illness such as chronic fatigue syndrome which is poorly catered for by the medical profession as a whole, it is inspiring for a patient, particularly a new patient, to read about the illness from the perspective of someone who has been there.

True to it's title this book is comprehensive and covers every aspect of the illness from getting a diagnosis to dealing with confused family and friends. In this respect it focuses a lot more on coping with life as a CFS sufferer much more than many other CFS books.

This is the revised edition that contains up to date research findings from the National Institutes of Health and information regarding all the latest treatment possibilities. Another useful inclusion is the section comparing CFS with Fibromyalgia, multiple chemical sensitivity, and other conditions which often co-exist.

Adding further weight to this already impressive title are the contributions from leading CFS specialists including Dr. Paul Cheney whose work has been of great personal benefit to me in understanding my illness.
