Foods That Help Win the Battle Against Fibromyalgia: Ease Everyday Pain and Fight Fatigue
Foods That Help Win the Battle Against Fibromyalgia: Ease Everyday Pain and Fight Fatigue

2.0 out of 5 stars Not terribly helpful or evidence-based, 13 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am afraid this text peddles rather typical misunderstandings about fibromyalgia and ways to counter it. Yes, one should eat a good healthy diet with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables but some of the other ideas here step away from the growing evidence base. The text does not tell you do anything that will harm you but, likewise, because fibromyalgia is so complex (primarily because it is a term that probably encompasses a range of conditions that, one day, will be diagnosed and understood separately) it is unlikely to offer many people the benefits they would like. Advice from specialists, pain clinics and the large charities that focus upon this condition may provide more useful information based on state of the art knowledge of this condition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really useful text - be careful of 'borrowers!', 13 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent introductory text for a range of audiences including undergraduates studying social theory (probably at intermediate level and above), postgraduates and also academics wishing to get a sense of the main ideas of this influential theorist. It is usual for edited collections to have some weaker chapters but I found the quality of chapters consistent across this text. A really good buy and a couple of staff in the Department have tried to steal mine already!
