1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Susan on Feb. 21 2004
Format: Paperback
This book, while telling some of the truth about fibromyalgia, was co-written by Edwin Season, who works as an "independent medical examiner" for the Ohio State Teacher Retirement System. That means it is his job to find reasons to deny disability to those who need it, thereby saving the retirement system money. (This retirement system is being investigated for misuse of funds.) I am one of their victims, my illness being labeled as "Somatization Disorder" despite the mounds of objective medical evidence of brain injury, etc. I provided. Thanks to Season, I now struggle to work just 20 hours per week and I cannot keep up on bills. All because he thinks that illnesses like Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome are all in the mind. He needs to look at the evidence - and, a little compassion wouldn't hurt either. I'm now destroyed financially with little means of support. Thanks for nothing, Season.

I feel I have wasted good money on this one. I am a strong believer in mind-body medicine, but the bits and pieces of boring information in primer form were a real turn off.
The information in this book seems to have been copied almost straight from other sources.
Try Jon Kabat-Zinn, Deepak Chopra, Emmet E. Miller, J. Sarno, Candace Pert, almost anybody else, for more inspiring reading.

MindBodySpirit can be written all together like it's one word. Now you know what this book is about.
If you really want to connect your mind, body, and spirit, try a yoga class. If you want to know how your mind (nervous system and emotions) and body are connected, try some other book. I would recommend The Fibromyalgia Help Book (Fransen & Russell) or Inside Fibromyalgia (Pellegrino).

This is an extremely helpful guide for patients living with fibromyalgia. So many fibromyalgia books read like a medical textbook which is frustrating to patients looking for advice. The information in this book is complete, yet easy to comprehend and utilize. The doctors are very positive giving sound medical advice as well as alternative mind body solutions. The "Mind Body" portion gives me another route to recovery, and puts a human touch on this baffling disease. Very optimistic information for fibromyalgia sufferers!

I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 1994 and have read everything available on the subject. I have had excellent medical care, tried alternative therapies, meditated, relaxed, prayed with faith, exercised, used vitamins, herbs, etc.etc.etc. I still live with daily pain and fatigue!! I didn't learn anything new from this book. I found its simplistic, repetitive style and subtly condescending tone to be unhelpful at best, and extremely discouraging at worst. I found the ephemeral "mindbodyspirit" connection to amount to a fancy way of saying "it's all in your head". The last thing fibromyalgics need is unsympathetic MDs telling us we can "cure ourselves"!!I'd like to see them walk a mile in our shoes. Try the book Fibromyalgia and Chronic Myofascial Pain Syndrome by Dr. Devin Starlanyl for a comprehensive understanding of fibromyalgia by a compassionate physician.
