Chapters discuss the nature of MS, its management, and guidelines for dealing with all aspects of the disease and its impact on your life. A chapter on services available from the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, a glossary, a list of resources, and additional reading suggestions make this the place to begin your education about MS.
With education and proper care, most people diagnosed with multiple sclerosis will lead full and productive lives. Multiple Sclerosis: A Guide for the Newly Diagnosed, Third Edition is an essential resource for everything you need to know about MS, and includes new or updated sections on:
"This is an excellent book, which presents all the facts in a straightforward but sympathetic way. Full of practical advice covering all life topics, areas that are often neglected by busy physicians. It is highly recommended to all those whose lives have been affected by this disease." -- Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry
"A 'must-have' title for anyone who has recently been diagnosed with MS-and a good idea for family members and friends." -- InsideMS
"...filled with very good advice...Physicians can recommend this book to inquiring patients with a high degree of confidence." -- Doody's Reviews
"...Thoughtfully presented, usefully formatted, and informatively recommended guide for the non-specialist general reader." -- The Bookwatch
Instead of falling into the trap of bombarding the reader with negativity, this [book] instead places great emphasis on how to maintain a positive attitude and live with the condition. It's a refreshing change this is a book for the thinking person wanting a comprehensive and reasonably detailed view of where MS is at the present time must-have for anyone wanting answers and education about MS."-- MS in Focus

I'm a newly diagnosed patient of MS and this book has definately helped me to understand what it is my doctor is telling me at my appointments. It's a really good reference for those days when you're having cognitive problems. My mom has also enjoyed learning more about my disease with this book and others I now own.
