Very long medical books like this can be a trial to get through. But let me tell you, this book is amazing. It is mostly about Lyme disease, but even if you do not have Lyme I think you can learn a lot about how the right doctor with the right focus can attack a patient's chronic illness. There are a lot of terms in here that you, and probably most doctors don't even know. The audiobook put me to sleep plenty of times, but it was absolutely a crucial read and they definitely picked the right narrator. Amazing book. Seriously.

Any additional comments?
Note that I am a nurse that is studying to be a nurse practitioner.
This book was a big surprise to me. I see chronically ill patients all the time, and I never considered conditions such as Lyme disease or babesia. I was amazed by the wide spectrum of symptoms that often get diagnosed as other conditions. In particular, I was amazed to read stories about patients that, when treated, recovered from chronic pain, disability (going from completely wheelchair bound to walking), and recovery from psychiatric symptoms.
This is a very important read for nurses, doctors, nurse practitioners and the like. Similarly, I highly recommend this book to those that have suffered from chronic conditions and haven't received answers as to why they weren't improving.
