A well-written, accessible overview of the thyroid. This book discusses the thyroid's function, common diseases and treatments, and what patients can do on a daily basis to protect the health of their thyroids. I would recommend this book to anyone who has or might have thyroid disease. It is a great supplement to the information provided by your doctor, and can bring to light additional questions for your physician that you didn't even know you had.
