hey all i was thinking of putting a sort of 'required reading' sticky in the reading nook. ooo look at that, i just figured out how to post a sticky too LOL!

anyway, no research abstracts, just a decent MS book list. if anyone would like to chime in with titles/brief descriptions/what you thought was best about it, please do.

i'll start (with the only book about ms that i've actually read :oops: )

BLACK PATENT SHOES Dancing With MS by Eva Marsh
"BLACK PATENT SHOES Dancing With MS" is my story of living with the symptoms of multiple sclerosis since age 8. Follow me, after diagnosis at age 22 and learn about decades old research that led me to challenge accepted perceptions and devise strategies for recovery from all the damage of many episodes of multiple sclerosis. No other book shares such a positive story of life after diagnosis, or reveals the research that forms the basis for my recovery experience.

I liked Eva's scientific approach, and her determination to recover and to challenge mainstream thinking.

Final Exit: The Practicalities of Self-Deliverance and Assisted Suicide for the Dying
by Derek Humphry

Excellent reading for the disgusted ones. A must-read for every depressed soul thinking about putting an end to this. If it doesn't prevent you from doing it, nothing will.

McAlpine's Multiple Sclerosis 4th edition is usually considered the go to MS reference book and the library at the university I work at let me keep it for a couple of weeks.

Although opinions of ANY MS researchers should be taken with a grain of salt, McAlpine's list of contributers is a who's who of MS research and most people will consider the history of McAlpine's itself pretty interesting.

JL,

Do you want suggestions here, or in reply to the sticky?

One suggestion I have is "Curing MS" by Howard Weiner, MD. Though the title is very misleading, and I found the author at times to be somewhat arrogant (just my opinion), it does provide a good history of the development of various treatments for MS. The author is a neurologist at Brigham and Women's hospital, and has been studying MS since the late '60's.

Multiple Sclerosis: A Self-Help Guide to Its Management - Judy Graham is also a good one
Multiple Sclerosis Diet Book - Roy Swank - the classic diet book.
Ann and Judi's MS Recovery Diet is still the best (IMHO) diet related MS book.

Hi jimmy,
This might be too close to advertising but I think I'm going to erase my posts in this thread after you take what you want anyway.

This book isn't specific to MS and this email wasn't written to me specifically but went to the list of researchers investigating the possible relationship between the loss of evolutionary normal conditions and allergies/asthma/autoimmunes/autism and certain cancers which have risen in incidence as populations "develop".

author wrote:Subject: my book on diabetes, hygiene hypothesis and helminths is being published today



I wanted to let you know that my book, Diabetes Rising: How a Rare Disease Became a Modern Pandemic, And What To Do About It, is being published today, January 5. It devotes a full chapter to the hygiene hypothesis in general, and the study of helminths in particular. While the book is aimed primarily at a lay audience, I think it will also be of interest to researchers, because of the effort I put into painting as broad a picture as possible of the fascinating and varied work going on in the field. It includes a foreword by the respected endocrinologist Zachary Bloomgarden, MD.



The book has already received a very nice, pre-publication "starred" review in Library Journal. Today, beginning at 2 pm, I'll be interviewed live on National Public Radio's "Talk of the Nation" show. Tomorrow night, a segment on the book is scheduled for the ABC news show, "Nightline," at 11:30 p.m. ET. On January 17, a short interview with me will appear in Parade, the magazine included with many Sunday newspapers. Excerpts are scheduled to appear in the May issue of Discover and the March issue of Wired.



If you do buy and read the book, I will be eager to hear what you think. Please do let me know if you find any errors, as I will immediately correct them in any subsequent printings of the book. And if you or your organization would like to find out about corporate or multiple-copy discount rates, you can contact my publisher.



All the best, and happy new year! Dan Hurley

I don't blame you. I listened to the NPR interview last night and it was totally restricted to diabetes.
