Comments from an Amazon customer:

A reader from Vancouver, Canada , 06/12/98 If you can afford only one FM book, this is the one to buy! There are many books on Fibromyalgia Syndrome out there, many offer what is implied as the "quick fix". Well gang there IS no quick fix! BUT if you really want to learn more about your FM then this is the book you need to buy.
