    have read bits and pieces of it, very interesting but think it really is looking at symptom management, not the cause, which is a good thing till they find a cure for everyone

    Thanks-- do you think it's worth buying? The author is young and has been sick herself so she sounds enthusiastic but realistic...and it seems to offer information on meds researched for our very illnesses.

    A friend who is also sick like us wants to buy it buy asked my opinion...I told her I'd get back to her (GRIN) after I got some opinions, if any have heard of it.

    This book is quite interesting and a near thorough investigation into existing medicines applicable to CFS/ME. It is surprising that it is not mentioned more on this board and elsewhere. This young gal with CFS/ME has done a ton of research. I am constantly going back and reading sections of this book.
