Reviews - What do customers think about Feeling Dizzy: Understanding and Treating Vertigo, Dizziness, and Other Balance Disorders?

Feeling dizzy  Mar 21, 2006
I have been diagnosed with vertigo, and found the book to be very helpful, as to symptoms and possible causes. Thank you for a great book.
Dr. Michael L. Johnson  Feb 29, 2004
This is a good book. It is well written and very insightful.

Dr. Michael L. Johnson, author of "What Do You Do When the Medications Don''t Work--A Non-Drug Treatment of Dizziness, Migriane Headaches, Fibromyalgia, and Other Chronic Conditions".

Excellent guide for the layperson  Aug 2, 1997
Blakley and Siegel do an excellent job of explaining dizziness in terms that are easy to understand for a person unfamiliar with medical terminology. I have Meniere's Disease, of which dizziness is a symptom, and this is the first book I turn to for reference. Its only drawback is that is isn't up-to-date on current treatments, which is, of course, impossible
