A novel with some relevance

So here's a novel that might appeal to members of This is MS: John le Carré, The Constant Gardener. Amazon has a snappy review:
British diplomat Justin Quayle, complacent raiser of freesias and doting husband of the stunning, much younger Tessa, has tended his own garden in Nairobi too long.

Author: Howard L. Weiner, M.D.

I've recently come across a review of Dr. Weiner's book, "Curing MS: How Science is Solving the Mysteries of Multiple Sclerosis".

The review was published in the latest issue of "InsideMS", from the NMSS.

I'm not usually one for medical books but, it would seem that the book is a type of historical investigation. The history of the search of an identification of MS.

Science fiction, a little fantasty, mystery, politics, historical, the occasional novel...

Reading Nook ~ topic = Amelia Davis

:idea: anyone want to start a reading nook?

I am an avid reader...I thought it might be good to start a list of books, MS related, that we have found, and rate them (ie "this one is crap" or "this one is awesome"...). I would love to see recommendations (and things to avoid) here...

FOR EXAMPLE:

I recently heard about this book but it has not been ...
