Dummies

If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Dummies

Postby oreo » Tue Apr 22, 2008 11:00 am

I get a couple of e-mails a week from the 'Dummies' people pushing their latest books. Today's e-mail was a bit of a jaw dropper:

Multiple Sclerosis For Dummies

By Rosalind Kalb, Ph.D., Nancy Holland, RN, EdD, MSCN, Barbara Giesser, MD, David L. Lander

Now if only they could write MS Research for Dummies.

The reviews of the book indicate that it is full of excellent information. The price tag is a bit steep. Maybe Ian, the self proclaimed millionaire, will buy it and tell the rest of us about it.

I wonder who the "Dummies" are that are targeted for purchasing the book. Sounds like it is pretty technical for dummies.

Isn't it great how a company can make a comical title out of a serious problem and then make money off of it?
