Whether you're newly diagnosed with RA or a "veteran" of the disease, this book is full of information and a nice reference guide. I particularly liked the section offering up ideas for how to deal with some of the typical side effects of some of the medications. I also liked the other methods of pain management the author included, not just types of medications but alternative therapies as well.
