Reviews - What do customers think about Employment Issues and Multiple Sclerosis?

pretty helpful  Jun 4, 2006
phillip rumrill published the first edition in '96. this is, overall, a pretty helpful book. it discussed ms, unemployment, vocational assessment, job placement and retention, the ADA, tax benefits, as well as recommendations for policy and research. each chapter provides a very good, although brief and not very thorough, summary of each topic. while ADA originally was designed to be of benefit, case law has really taken a bite out of that legislation's actual helpfulness. the text seems like it straddles between a really practical book for those with ms and the scholarly. it is easy to read, clearly written, providing some helpful information that usually cites sources. i found most helpful the appendices on disability contacts and assistance technology assistance programs. i wish that it would have included chapters on adjustment and coping issues in the workplace, legal sources beyond ada, transportation to and from work, workplace health insurance and benefits issues that the person with ms specifically faces, dealing with prejudice and harassment and discrimination ... overall, it is a pretty good book, probably the most helpful book on the topic, the most accessible, not the most comprehensive. it is certainly worth the read, especially if you can borrow it from the library or the current edition is purchased used, maybe even new.
