The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating

The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating
By Elisabeth Tova Bailey

HIGHLY RECOMMEND  By Pat Fero (Book Review)
The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating is the perfect book for me. The heft and print size are exactly right. It's not too large and heavy, it is not very long, and the print is very readable. The title causes me to ask the questions: If the snail is wild then who hears it eating?  Is that even possible? Why write about a snail eating anyway? 

Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS/ME) is a controversial and poorly understood illness. Sufferers often have to deal with skepticism from their families and employers. Even doctors and other health care professionals may sometimes appear not to believe or understand. The vast amount of often conflicting advice published to date has lead to even more confusion.

Written by the nation's most recognized CFIDS authority and officially endorsed by the CFIDS Association, this book is the definitive, up-to-date guide for the three to five million people who suffer from Chronic Fatigue/Immune Dysfunction Syndrome. Now at last, anyone touched by this illness can have the solid information they need to understand and live with CFIDS.

A look at chronic fatigue syndrome discusses its causes, its symptoms, if it is contagious, its relationship to AIDS, its relationship to cancer, its effect on children, what the government is doing about it, and more.

"Faces of CFS" is a book of 10 compiled case histories of CFS. Dr. Bell's kind and caring attitude for his patients comes through strongly in his newest book. He has treated thousands of CFS patients and shares his bewilderment as well as his patients as to what this illness does to the patient and how our society reacts to it. While he can not offer a cure for the illness he can offer a knowing and sympathetic ear and will do all he can to ease the suffering of those in his practice.
