When I swapped my normal practice to follow this book for a while I came to appreciate them very much. For me, when practiced regularly they do have an incredible positive effect on fibro-pains and fibro-fog. And the more mindfully I do them, using the breath and visualization, the more beneficial they are. Of course, given how variable fibro is experienced, even following a book for fibros you'll have to experiment and find out what works for you. E.g. I stopped doing what the author calls 'reclining twist pose' and 'thread the needle pose' because they trigger sciatica (for me).
I don't know why other key restorative poses that help fibros are not mentioned, such as child pose, supported child pose, supported twists, supta baddha konasana, supta virasana, supported forward bend. So, despite its usefulness and depth regarding the chosen poses I think the book is a bit limited and overpriced. And I do not agree with author that a metal folding chair is a basic prop as many household chairs will do for the types of poses described in this book; would recommend a good bolster instead (for supported child pose, supported downward dog, supta baddha konasana, etc.).
Yoga for Fibromyalgia is the book that I have trying to find for a good long while. This valuable resource shows a variety of yoga postures (complete with color photographs) showing how they can be adapted on those bad days. Many of these movements can be done while you are sitting at the computer or watching television to relieve tension.
Near the end of the book, the author also shows how to combine the positions to create daily routines. Specifically with Fibromyalgia symptoms in mind, the book includes realistic ready made programs for pain relief (upper body, lower body, or general as needed), for fatigue, and for good days.
