It encourages readers to develop individual approaches to setting goals, making decisions, and finding resources and support so that they are able to do the things they want and need. Originally based on a five-year study conducted at Stanford University, this work has grown to include the feedback of medical professionals and people with chronic conditions all over the world.

Fantastic book, for those living with a chronic condition, or working with those living with a chronic condition. I'm using it as a teaching aid, and it is extremely helpful.
