This is an ongoing reference book for me. I was just diagnosed with this brain disorder in 2008. It has been soooo informative and pretty easy to read. The author shares little snippets of practical tips, their own experience and 2 cents, and more. I plan to share it with my family, so that they better understand the disorder, and also my primary care dr. I highly recommend this for people diagnosed with Chiari and their families as well. It is a very scary time, being diagnosed with a brain disorder that is not well known...this book will give you the best information out there!
