Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Celso Agner, MD, MS, MSc (Michigan Neurology Partners)
Description: Fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome are two frequent problems encountered in the general population. They are, however, misunderstood and underscored by many. Therefore, an updated review on the topic is useful for non-believers and experts in the subject alike.
Purpose: The purpose of this book is to address fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome in a diverse approach. In my perspective, those were worthy objectives fully achieved by the authors.
Audience: The audience comprises mostly family practitioners, neurologists, neurosurgeons, and internists. In my view, the target population was completely reached by the author, who is an expert on the topic.
Features: The book is written in a very unique style, almost like a novel. However, the context is scientific enough to expose the bases for fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. I think that any other exposure would lead into failure; as many professionals do not totally agree even with the true existence of those syndromes. Treatment is controversial and outcome, variable. However, the book is well written, has good quality pictures, and deviates from a formal style. The price is equipotent to the interest I would find in buying this book.
Assessment: I think it is overkill to add this book to any library. The contents are fine, but not attractive enough to a general or neurosciences library.
