Excellent and thorough!

This book is great! I only wish I had found it earlier in my journey. I am almost one year out from surgery and still learned a lot. Highly, highly recommend! Good luck to everyone on this amazing journey!

Unorganized

This book is unorganized. It is repetitive and constantly refers back to other chapters that offers very little information.
