    Biased, arrogant and factually inaccurate

    This authors of this book continue to victimize people severely ill with a debilitating organic illness, ME/CFS, by spewing their fake science claiming it is an illness with "physical symptoms but without bodily pathology". Countless scientific studies have shown the organic nature of the illness and, yet, the authors of this book are completely ignoring the vast evidence proving them wrong. Michael Sharpe, are you in denial or are you just demonstrating a total disregard for the patients you are "treating" and "studying?" It is simply UNTRUE that "bodily pathology" has not been established in the case of ME/CFS. Every real scientist who has studied the disease will be happy to explain that to you.

    Psychology and psychiatry have their place if they are practiced responsibly. However, given the unscientific and untrue nature of some of what's stated as fact in this book, acting responsibly doesn't seem to have been on the authors' agenda.
