I couldn't read the book because it is soaked with perfume and the scents activated a cascade of pain that lasted for days. It's unfortunate that a book many folks living with fibromyalgia will want to read may actually make things worse (not because of the content but because of the perfume).

Unlike most books about fibromyalgia, this book makes no false claims about curing the disease. Instead, it faces the symptoms and addresses ways to combat the symptoms utilizing professional research. The author is one of the leading experts on the condition in the United States, and her thoroughness of describing and addressing each symptom shows us why. In a world where fibromyalgia sufferers are given few options, Dr. Liptan provides a wealth of information to comfort and combat the illness.

This is hands-down the best book for fibromyalgia sufferers that I have ever read. All the other books have different theories about the underlying cause, and there is always something about them that doesn't seem quite right. This is the only one where every symptom clicks and every treatment and experience I have had so far fits exactly into what the author describes. There is a lot to take in, but the author does her best to keep it simple for us non-medical types, while also providing hard evidence for everything she says. I highly recommend this book!
