It is unfortunate that the founder of the NFA seeks to pull off an "It's all in your mind" outlook towards an illness that has been long waived off as inconsequential by the medical community. While I do believe that a positive mindset is imperative in any illness regiment, I do not believe that Fibromyalgia will simply go away if one wills it. Further medical research and real world answers to deal with the physical symptoms are needed.

Although there were a few facts I hadn't heard before, I was overall not impressed. I found most of the same info previously just by googling and reading the pamphlets from my doctor's office. It may be good for someone just diagnosed but if you have researched fibromyalgia at all, I wouldn't recommend this book.

While this book was informative, I thought it was rather vague & lacking in substance. Obviously, my situation colors my view, but I felt like this book focused more on the emotional and psychological effects of fibromyalgia & how to treat them than on the physical effects & available treatments. My body hurts, not my mind...

Like many of the "For Dummies" or "The Complete Idiot's Guide" the book is written by what I deem a lay person expert providing rich content in a format that the lay person can understand.

I enjoyed, and know that I will for future years, the easy to read, pick up and go, style.

Even though I was diagnosed with this before it became a syndrome (31 years ago). I found a great deal of useful info in this book. Recommend for both sufferers and friends and family.

This book had some useful information, but did not provide any special insights beyond what I have learned from my doctors and on the Internet.

Highly recommend this book for anyone for anyone with fibromyalgia or their support system. One of the better written books on the subject.
