Do you or someone you care for have MS? Learn to DEAL with it without giving in to any 'victim'-mode. This little book very, very calmly deals with most of the wide-ranging symptoms that MS-ers are challenged by. In short, short chapters, it describes the 'what', the 'why', and then provides insights into various 'hows' to deal with each symptom. Where possible, it gives alternatives and progressive suggestions, and includes discussion of different medications with the positives and negatives included. There was a lot set out that I didn't know anything about, so it was very helpful. It does not purport to be an exhaustive reference work -- it is more like a brisk, informative conversation with a knowledgable physician. I think that, besides helping one understand the 'nitty gritty', it will probably be an excellent book to take to the next doctor's appointment as a springboard for better discussion. I was able to read this book in one sitting (while I was defragmenting my hard drive!) and I decided to light a candle of approval here at Amazon so that other readers would have an idea what this book is like. Again, it is not a textbook or tome; it is insight. It also has a great glossary of terms that you come across in "MS World", and even provides illustrated exercises and methods of moving around. And not a drop of pity or melodrama, just reality.
