    Absolutely essential!!!

    Will's book has spared me many hours filtering information on the internet, several doctors appointments going through lists of questions, and a hard time managing my emotions. To me, hepatitis B is not a mysterious black box with a potential bomb inside anymore, I know what it's doing to my body (and my mind) and I know how to deal with it. This book covers ALL the aspects of someone's life that might be affected by this disease, it covers all the medical yada yada verylongwordsthatnooneunderstands that make you look smart when you talk about it and all the personal and social issues you will have along the way. In 5 words: I HIGHLY recommend this book!

    An excellent first-person account of coping with HBV

    A brave, readable book authored by a patient turned expert. Finley Green's first person account of his experiences with HBV are honest and compelling. His style encourages the reader to take the often difficult journey from coping with the realization of infection to facing the day-to-day challenges that are ever-present when living with the virus. Finley Green's book is casual and open, replete with examples from his personal experiences. He speaks to the reader, not as an 'expert' dictating what patients should or should not do, but as a friend encouraging people to do what they can do to help themselves. A MUST READ for those living with HBV or interested in learning more about the virus.
