Living With Multiple Chemical Sensitivity: Narratives of Coping
Multiple Chemical Sensitivity
Written by Maff     July 27, 2007    
This book is written by a Seattle counselor living with multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS). She presents her interviews with 32 people coping with this life- impacting syndrome in different regions of the US and Canada.

Each interview is accompanied by pictures which adds to the impact of the individual's personal story. In one interview a sufferer's spouse adds his perspective which offers important incite into how multiple chemical sensitivity affects the people close to the sufferer.

This is a great book for people thinking they are alone in the nightmare of MCS. The book demonstrates that there are so many others out there in a similar situation and shows how they are coping with life as an MCS sufferer. Appendices include an overview of MCS, a sociologist's viewpoint, resources for support, and recommended reading.

This is undoubtedly the most personal look at MCS I have read and as such I found it very enlightening. This book is sure to give hope and comfort to MCS sufferers.
