Living with ME/CFS book available online

The 1992 edition of Dr Anne Macintyre's book is now available on the
website of the Irish ME Trust (separate group from the group I'm
involved in). I know a lot of people who think that the different
editions of her book are very good. The books combine her knowledge
as both a doctor and a patient with the illness. Looking again at this
edition, it includes a lot of information about research published
thru' 1992 that one doesn't hear much about now. Tom

This was the book recommended to me by my physio / acupuncture practitioner (herself an ME sufferer) a few years back. Fortunately I managed to obtain my own copy but, I'm rather surprised that there are no plans for it to be reprinted, as I found it an invaluable resource.
