This book is written by a woman who has lived with RA for over 40 years. I never thought I'd see the day where I'd find someone who has had RA longer than I have, so this really piqued my interest.

I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised with this book. Lene is very honest and forward with the information, but also positive and determined. It's very informative, giving an introduction to RA and what it does, the treatments used for it (with details about some of the widely used medications)

A Definite Must Read For Anyone With RA!!

A very comprehensive book written from the viewpoint of someone who has personal knowledge, having had RA for 40 years. Things never told to me in the past 12 years by doctors are covered in this book and filled in some missing pieces for me. This book contains 200+ pages of valuable insight, advice, tips, and links to helpful resources. I HIGHLY recommend this book. It's not a one-time read, but will serve as a wonderful reference for future use as well.

This is the book I needed when I was first diagnosed, though it has much information that I found useful now. It answers a lot of the questions you have when you are facing RA and discusses some of the things you can only learn from someone who has experienced the disease. As someone who has chatted with the author, I can tell you that she is sincere in her wish to help others learn how to understand and cope with the RA's daily challenges.

Getting a grip on RA

RA is very confusing. This book helped me a lot not only in it's content, but knowing that the author lives with the disease she writes about. It really helped me to wrap my head around what I'm facing, how to face it, and that I'm not alone.
