Only really worth reading if fibromyalgia is your primary illness. If you have it secondary to something else, even if fibro affects your life just as much as the primary, this book is almost useless.

I have fibromyalgia secondary to Ehlers-Danlos syndrome type III (a.k.a. hypermobility syndrome), and a fair chunk of the ideas in this book would cause me more harm than good.

I was lucky enough to meet Christine in Tenerife and she has great understanding of this debilitating condition which is much maligned. As a sufferer myself I found the tips in this book invaluable. A must for any sufferer's of a chronic pain and fatigue condition. ...more

Mostly stuff I already knew, but I came away with a couple new strategies.

honest & open book explaining the condition in detail along with possible associated conditions. a must for recently diagnosed fibromyalgics, their relatives & close friends.

This was the first Fibro book that I have read (actual paperback, not digital).
It came highly recommended, and I agree.

Nicely set out, easy to follow and quite comprehensive. Can get a little technical, but not overwhelming at all.

A good place for getting a basic understanding of the condition from someone who was a suffer herself.

She wrote and published the first British book on the condition around 1999/2000.

An extremely important read for friends and families of people with fibromyalgia. It will tell them everything you can't explain.
