    A Must-Have for all Fibromyalgia patients

    As a Fibromyalgia/chronic myofascial pain sufferer, and survivor (thanks in part to to Devin J. Starlanyl's M.D.'s books)I cannot recommend this wonderful book highly enough. If you need to own only one book on Fibromyalgia/Chronic Myofascial Pain this one is it. It is particularly valuable because the section for medical specialists educates not only the patient, but the health care professional as well. As a librarian(MLS from an ALA accredited graduate school) it more than satisfies all the criteria we use to select a non-fiction book. Kathleen F. Evans, B.A., M.L.S.
