Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Daniel B. Hier, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This thin volume is a summary of a conference held in Vancouver during June of 1994 on the topic of fibromyalgia, repetitive strain injury, and chronic fatigue syndrome.
Purpose: The purpose of the book is to provide a concise update of current thinking about these common but poorly defined and difficult to treat disorders.
Audience: It is directed at occupational health workers, neurologists, rheumatologists, and physiatrists.
Features: The book consists of a summary of symposium proceedings in the form of 2 to 3 page abstracts of presentations.
Assessment: This is a disappointing book. The various abstracts are too sketchy to be of any real value. There is no overall plan to the book and no editorial commentary for the various contributions. The book is poorly integrated, too vague, and lacks editorial direction or oversight.
