5.0 out of 5 stars The scientific basis of M.E. 10 Feb 2012
By Jodi-Hummingbird TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
An excellent resource from Dr Byron Hyde MD (editor).

This book is the one and only M.E. textbook. This book is essential reading for anyone with M.E., or an interest in M.E. Buy this book!!!

Not all of the many chapters in this book are worthwhile or still current, BUT this book is well worth the price and the 5 stars even if only for the five or six chapters written by Dr Hyde, unarguably the world's leading M.E. expert.

I'd also highly recommend you check out Dr Hyde's more recent writings. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

As Dr Hyde explains, M.E. is not 'CFS.'

"At the first meeting on the 27th of October 2005, the Chairman of the
Joint Committee, Dr Ian Gibson, asked me to prepare a report and
definition that might assist the committee in its further deliberations.
The following are my original recommendation. Dr Bruce Carruthers, who
chaired the 2003 Canadian Clinical Case Definition for M.E./CFS, was
also present when I gave this definition. I strongly disagreed with Dr
Caruthers in the merging the definitions of M.E. and CFS since on the
basis of the physical total body assessment of both M.E. and CFS
patients; these two names represent two entirely different spectrums of
illnesses.
It is increasingly obvious that too much importance was being
placed upon the definitions of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), and not
enough upon the actual disease, Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.). These
two illness spectrums are not the same and should not be considered to
be the same.

3.0 out of 5 stars Understanding me 12 April 2014
By fiona
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
It has helped me with understanding me. More for actual medics but some good points. Not easy to understand for a lay reader.
