This book will help a lot of people not feel so alone and shameful. It's like having a conversation with a close, trusting friend. (Marit Lysne, PsyD, LP, clinical psychologist, Carleton College)

Carolyn Bloom

As a parent, I have watched and experienced my son's struggles with Crohn's disease, but reading your words gives me a better understanding ... very practical, and all ages will find parts they can identify with. It's a quick read with lots of humor and smiles. (Carolyn Bloom, physical therapist, Lawrence, Kansas)

An invaluable resource for IBD patients and medical professionals. As a surgeon, I found it a humorous and accessible way to gain a patient's perspective on this disease. (Kevin Hudenko, MD, FACS, Albuquerque, New Mexico)

Should be read by everyone affected by a chronic disease-patients, families, friends and coworkers. It is informative and touching, and best of all, laugh out loud funny. I can't wait to recommend it to friends, family and my patients. (Ken Loving, MD, AAFP, family physician and medical director, Access Community Health Centers, Madison, Wisconsin)

This is one of the best looks at the emotional side of IBD that i have ever read. Despite the author making his story funny, he doesn't pull any punches and you really "get" the sense of the emotional ups and downs of living with IBD.

I picked this up at the library, along with any other book on Crohn's Disease I could find, after my 12-yr old son was diagnosed. This guy is an absolute hoot! What a refreshingly human -- and humorous -- take on a not-funny disease. Not only did I learn a lot about what some suffer through with this disease, but there was also very valuable information about symptoms, tests, doctors, etc. A very funny read for anyone, whether they have IBD or not.
