I read a lot of heavy medical books when I was diagnosed with IBS and I ended up picking up this one last. I regret the order I read them in, because this is a great introductory book that eases you in, gives you the knowledge very simplified and broken down, and is absolutely helpful. I suggest if you were diagnosed, read this first! If you have read and done your research (like I had) read it anyway! After I read it I gave it to my family to read because it's a great simple book that really outlines your condition and it even has tips for those in your life on how to deal with this. For example, don't try to give advice, listen, etc etc. Worth the price IMO!

I like this book because there are all the information in it about IBS. It is the condition that doctors don't know much about. Some doctors don't even believe it exists, yet 20% of people in North America suffer from IBS.
The book is so comprehensive that, once you read it, you would be either able to manage this condition on your own or to identify if you have something else rather than/or in addition to IBS.
The book was in excellent condition even though I bought a used one.
