Great book, very inspiring. Jun 27, 2005
An awesome book, read it at a time when i was very poorly (ME for 5yrs aged 24), this book gave me hope and inspired me when i needed it the most. I would recommend this book to anyone suffering from ME as a powerful and wonderful insight into how recovery is possible.
