I consider myself very lucky for finding "Solved: The Riddle of Illness" in the amazon.com. Recently, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism, and only because I had enough guts to ask my doctor to check my thyroid for possible problems. Before the diagnosis, I had so many symptoms "without the cause" that, in late thirties, I thought my life is slipping away. The suggested cure was "lose weight and take it easy." In other words, it was indirectly suggested that "everything is in my mind." If I only had this book then! I could've escaped from much misery and anxiety that is hard to describe even in thousands of words! "Solved: The Riddle of Illness" is my best friend now. Stephen E. Langer, M.D & James F. Scheer discus hypothyroid problems and their symptoms clearly, thoroughly, candidly. (One author has the condition.) I admire the authors for showing respect to the ordinary people's medical intelligence and give the! m an incredible tool - the knowledge of illness - to better their lives. It is one of the best health books I've ever read. Five star scale is not sufficient to rate it. My visits to an HMO doctor's office last five minutes, and this book will stay with me forever. All the information shared gave me understanding of the debilitating illness. Now, I have hope that there is much I can do to control it and eventually to come back to normal life. Thank you, Stephen E. Langer and James F. Scheer, from the bottom of my heart! I recommend this book to everyone who has unexplainable depression, fatigue, who lost love of life, or who is simply genuinely interested in staying healthy. Not just 75,000 copies but millions should be printed and discovered by such lucky readers like me.
