Just having met someone with Lupus, I had questions. This book was a very good source of information that answered many of my questions, in easy to understand language. I found this book to be a good, solid first step to better understand Lupus.
One of the best books on Lupus to date. I was particularly impressed that the authors know that the 'Blush rashes' are the most common skin problem in SLE. Most doctors only speak to the butterfly rash - aren't even aware of the 'blush.' My only disappointment with this book was that nothing was said about Iritis (aka uveitis), a very serious eye complication that Lupus suffers can get.
Here is a book set up in a question and answer format.This makes it easier for the reader to digest the often overwhelming amount of information presented. Because the questions are from real lupus patients, and because the good doctors answer in like vein, I found the book to be very user friendly.
