I order this due to a requirement for my graduate school. I am impressed with overall information since it was simple and easy to understand. I would recommend this for anyone who is into professions that requires better understanding the concept of how individuals with disabilities live in their worlds of barriers.

The book Medical and Psychosocial Aspects of Chronic Illness and Disability is a great book to read if you want to know more about certain conditions. The book is organized in chapters, one chapter for each area of the body. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more in the medical field.
