"The book is clearly written in a manner that enables average readers to understand and, just as importantly, ask questions about the disorder, and makes suggestions about what to ask their healthcare providers. This makes the book appropriate for the patient, significant others and caregivers, as well as students of the healing arts in teaching their patients about collaboration in care. The authors provide an evidence- and research-based perspective."--Doody's, a 4 star review!
