  • This is a concise and invaluable guide to multiple sclerosis for both new and experienced patients, caretakers, and medical providers. The author and the patient have done an excellent job crafting this book, and I applaud them for their hard work in this and their other endeavors supporting those with MS.  This second edition is particularly valuable in light of new therapies for multiple sclerosis; however, with even more drugs planned for the over next few years, another update may be warranted!
