Reviews - What do customers think about Multiple Sclerosis: The Questions You Have, the Answers You Need?
The best overall reference text for questions about Multiple Sclerosis Apr 3, 2007
This book answers most of your questions about MS with short, readable, and reliable answers. Very good indexing and cross referencing to related questions helps to find the right question to ask for the information you want. More expensive than other MS books, but packed with far more content. We use this book all the time in my MS support group.
The best Mar 23, 2006
I bought this book for a friend who was recently diagnosed with MS. At that point, neurologists and specialized MS-nurses are constantly all over you. This irritates my friend especially when her questions are not answered quickly and fully. That is where the book comes in. My friend says the book is better than her neurologist and the MS-nurse put together.
An important consumer's handbook Jan 3, 2005
The brand-new third edition of Rosalind Kalb's classic guide, Multiple Sclerosis: The Questions You Have, The Answers You Need, fully updates medical information with the latest details, covering a range of topics in a handy question-and-answer format which makes it easy to understand MS management. Each chapter also includes a list of references and recommended reading, along with a glossary of terms and resource list, making Multiple Sclerosis an important consumer's handbook with readily-accessible details for concerned non-specialist general readers.
Best MS Reference Book Jul 1, 2004
I was diagnosed nearly two years ago, and this book has been a very valuable reference. I keep going back to it again and again as I have questions, and despite other reviewers' comments, I felt it was up to date when I purchased it. Perhaps these comments were based on an older edition? I also found the index to be very user-friendly. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone with MS.
Old Answers for New Questions Apr 15, 2004
Unfortunately, a lot of this information is out of date -- and even if it wasn't, it's some of the answers to some of the questions you might have, presented in a sometimes easily accessible but sometimes difficult to access fashion. Some of the contributions are far more useful than others. I appreciate the fact that Rosalind Kalb has been a tireless advocate for people with MS, and I hope she updates this book (with a better format) -- but still I wish there were some MS "advocates" out there who weren't taking drug company money.
