9780140263473: Osler's Web: Inside the Labyrinth of the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Epidemic

For more than a decade a devastating disease has been allowed to spread through our country - unchecked, insufficiently researched, and all but ignored, if not denied, by the medical establishment. In many circles this disease, still known as Yuppi Flu, is dismissed as a psychological aberration. For the nearly two million people who have endured its traumatic and very real debilitating physical effects, however, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is no joke.

From the Inside Flap:

In a masterful effort of investigative reporting, freelance journalist Hillary Johnson reveals for the first time how Chronic Fatigue Syndrome was allowed to grow over the course of a decade into a major public health threat under the disbelieving and ultimately blind eye of the American medical research establishment.

About the Author:

Hillary Johnson has been a staff writer at Congressional Quarterly, Women’s Wear Daily, Life, and was a contributing editor at Rolling Stone. She has written for the Wall Street Journal, the Christian Science Monitor, Town & Country, Vogue, and Vanity Fair, among other publications.
