    Has anyone heard of or read the book, Fibromyalgia- Up Close and Personal by Mark Pelligreno(not sure of the spelling) Haven't read it myself but saw it in the book store and looked thru it- Worth buying??????

    I haven't seen the book Fibromyalgia Up Close and Personal yet.

    I do have the book by Mark J. Pellegrino, MD called "Inside Fibromyalgia". It is pretty good. Lots of good info on many aspects of fibro. It is from 2001, though, so I would hope this new book of his would have even more up to date information.

    I just read that, and I thought it was excellent. Lots and lots of great, recent information. His attempts at humor got on my nerves a bit, but on the whole, a very good read.

    One inaccuracy, though, that bothered me: He describes Effexor as an SSRI, which isn't correct. Effexor, at least at higher doses, works on both norepinephrine and serotonin reuptake.
