More than a half million people in the United States are affected to some degree by the neurological disease multiple sclerosis. Health writer Carroll and neurologist Dorman have authored a compact, highly readable guide for people with MS. Information on diagnosis, psychological coping, the importance of exercise and nutrition, and practical tips for everyday living with MS are presented clearly. The tone is realistic but upbeat, as noted in the title. Comparing favorably to John K. Wolf and others' Mastering Multiple Sclerosis (Academy Bks, 1987. 2d ed.), this book works well as a companion volume. Recommended for all popular health collections.
