As a physician and the spouse of someone with multiple sclerosis I feel that this book contains much wisdom and guidance for achieving one's greatest potential for healing when confronted by the reality of this disease * Bernie Siegel MD * This is the most exciting book I have read in some time. Everyone affected by MS, either directly or indirectly, needs to read it * Ian Gawler OAM, author of You Can Conquer Cancer and Peace of Mind * I gave it to a friend with MS who said it was the most useful book she had read. "Jelinek is perfectly placed to analyse data and research and to evaluate their worth. I found it invaluable." * Mail on Sunday *
