Not just for patients

Chronic Fatigue SYNDROME is not the same thing as the SYMPTOM of "chronic fatigue". Too many doctors use the term interchangeably. This book will explain the difference. CDC has recently announced that CFS is a "real disease", and that they have determined that the people most likely to get CFS after a viral illness are the ones who were most severely sickened by the virus. This book is written like a medical textbook -- while it's an excellent addition to your library if you're already a student of CFS, it's not a good choice for the layperson patient as a first book. (For that purpose, I'd suggest David S. Bell or Katrina Berne.) It would, however, make a nice Christmas gift for your doctor, who can actually understand all the technical stuff in it. I would recommend that every medical group and medical library get a copy of this book for reference. It explains the disease and its effects (medical and social) in ways that are hard to understand unless you're living with it 24/7. You'll be able to understand what your patients are experiencing in ways that they may not be able to explain, either because they lack the words or because a 7-minute appointment is not enough time.
