Excellent information and narration-buy it!
I normally don't give any money or attention to "For Dummies" books, because I am not a dummy. That said, I was wrong to ignore these books, as this was an excellent collection of information. Some things I knew, but reminders and refreshers are a good thing, or, in my case, a VERY good thing (fibro fog is real!). I also learned a lot, and found the narration to be pleasant. I'm glad I was wrong about "For Dummies", and definitely recommend this book in audio or print format (or both!).

Great for new patients.
I have been a patient of fibromyalgia now for about 20 yrs. so sadly I knew most information but if you new patient this book might also be a bit overwhelming. It would be good if you have read other books first.
