i was sadly disappointed by this book. 200 pages, half of which were half-filled out tables. on the good side, the print was big and the spacing was generous, leading me to read this book in less than 2 hours. two tables described the incorrect material, which should have been caught by the author or at least a demos editor. two tables showed 3 levels in block but the actual table just showed three line bars without separated identification. diet is more important and requires greater detail. psychological practices and beliefs and interpersonal relations matter when we discuss fatigue and should have been brought out. it's hard for us to delegate things, and i'd love to see someone discuss how this ought to be accomplished. while i recognize that the author is an OTR, she ought to have included a chapter or two on medications and vitamins and alternative therapies, even if she would have had to include a neurologist, nutritionist, and alternative therapies practitioner as co-authors. if i were just starting out looking at fatigue in ms, i'd probably first go to the nmss web site which covers lots more information. most of the other available books, including kalb's dummies book, includes more information on fatigue than this book did, and i wasn't terribly impressed with it, either. this book, on the other hand, is balanced and seems objective and did not contain lots of grammatical errors. i liked the chapter on storage, especially, and i found it very useful. i really hate to give a book a low rating and review, but, in this case, the book was written in a less than comprehensive manner, was filled out with material that was unnecessary, and was a perfect waste of my $13 or so. i'd give it a D, the first D that i've ever given. sorry.
ummm, since i wrote this review, i consulted with my physician who prescribed medication that very effectively manages fatigue, for which i'm immensely grateful.
