"Th is book is not just for people with MS and their families, friends, and colleagues. It is a "must read" for everyone. With one in 750 people living with MS, each of us knows, knows of, or will know someone with MS. We all have questions about MS that we need answered. This book asks Questions and gives Answers. The simplicity of the "Q and A" approach is deceptive because it serves many purposes. The Questions are "Users' Guide" to the book. Set out from the rest of the text in their own font and bolded typeface,they make it easy to flip through a chapter to find exactly what one is looking for. The way the authors answer the Questions makes this book special. Of course there is solid factual information. See, for example, the chapters on the disease and its epidemiology and on the ADA, FMLA, SSDI, and PASS. Hear the sound advice on communication, planning for the future, and sexuality. Notice the wisdom on parenting, family dynamics, and how to "bank and budget energy.""--
