Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a progressive neurological disease that can be difficult to diagnose and is extremely debilitating. Freelance writer Hill was diagnosed with MS after consulting ten doctors and spending four years searching for answers. Appalled by books that offered little hope and spare information, she offers a more positive outlook and concrete advice for those newly diagnosed with MS. Hill documents her own story of declining physical condition and mounting frustrations in seeking answers to her health problems and explains how her life has changed because of the disease. Drawing from her own experiences, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS), and scientific sources, she answers over 100 commonly asked questions about the disease. Diagnosis is highlighted, as are tips on how to locate a good neurologist and family/lifestyle issues. Drug therapies are charted by name, dosing method and frequency, side effects, and indications. A glossary and a list of MS clinical facilities affiliated with the NMSS are also included. An excellent addition to most consumer health collections.-Janet M. Schneider, James A. Haley Veterans Hosp., Tampa Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    Excellent - I love this book!

    After purchasing several books regarding MS I finally found this one and thank goodness I did! I was tired of the long-winded explanations and sad stories regarding the disease. I've gotten enough of that from my doctors. What I wanted, this book offered - blunt honesty and easy navigation to the questions I had. I loved it so much that I bought each of my family members a copy and now consider it one of my favorite books - maybe not my favorite topic, but my favorite book. I highly recommend it to other MS'ers! Best wishes! :)
