The book on CFS

 

Perspectives On Diseases & Disorders

  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

  • Author Sylvia Engdahl
  • Published by Greenhaven Press

Each volume in this timely series provides essential information on a disease or disorder (including symptoms, causes, treatments and cures); presents the controversies surrounding causes, alternative treatments, and other issues; and offers first-person narratives from people coping with the disease -- either as patients, family members or caregivers. Essays are carefully edited and introduced to make them easily accessible to student researchers as well as general readers.

By focusing on the controversies surrounding diseases and disorders, this series supports debate assignments and helps develop critical thinking skills, and also helps patients and family members learn about and deal with a disease or disorder. Each volume includes numerous color photos, charts, graphs and tables as well as a glossary of key terms, a chronology of developments relating to the disease or disorder, a bibliography to assist with further research, a list of organizations to contact and an index.

Review:

"High school students researching health topics will be very thankful for this highly informative and homework-friendly series. Teens with a personal interest or health concern will also find useful and fascinating material and a list of organizations to contact for further information and help. This series is a must-have for any library serving high school students who might be curious about or need to research the stubjects."
