Language: English
Interest category: Health & welfare
Media class: Paperback
Publisher: Hammersmith Books
Resource type: Physical
Note: Chronic fatigue syndrome, or myalgic encephalitis, (CFS/ME) affects approximately 180,000 people in the UK. In addition to persistent and abnormal tiredness, sufferers commonly experience muscle pain, headaches, sleep disturbance and loss of concentration as well as a range of other symptoms. At its worst it can be completely disabling and yet it is still poorly understood and often regarded as purely psychological. This practical manual comes from a nationally recognised centre for the condition and is jointly written by health professionals and their patients. They give straightforward and specific expert advice, accompanied by real life stories, on managing different aspects of everyday life that can affect energy and they show how to put this advice into practice.

Interest category: Health & welfare
Media class: Paperback
Content type: Bibliography
Publisher: Piatkus
Resource type: Physical
Note: In days gone by, people understood that a knock to your health takes its toll on your emotions, your relationships, your morale, your 'spirit'. But these days, we think that if the doctor has waved you off, then you are 'better'. We neglect what scientific studies show is a vital element of recovery: the emotional side of getting better. As a result, many of us struggle with hidden issues such as depression, stress and anxiety long after a health crisis. This book centres on the crucial, research-based truth that 'getting better' is not just about the body - emotions play a huge part. General adult

Don't bother! Really, save the time you could spend reading this & sit with a nice brew, enjoying the peace. Very repetitive. Neither useful nor funny. As far a I can make out there is little, if any, difference between his two books.
