Title Better Recovery from Viral Illnesses
Author Dr. Darrel Ho-Yen
Year Published 1994
ISBN 0-951-1090-3-0
Back Cover "The first edition of this book [...] was the FIRST book published on Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome (myalgic encephalomyelitis, chronic fatigue syndrome). [...] Unlike other books, the emphasis in this book is what the patient and doctor should do to best cope with the illness."
Our Review Comes highly recommended by the Tymes Trust and by Martin Earl who is one of my longest standing friends and the first person I ever knew with CFS/ME. Jan LB. ©

Title ME - The New Plague
Author Jane Colby
Year Published 1999
ISBN 1-8608-3215-6
Back Cover "[This book] finally kills the myth that ME is 'all in the mind'. It explores the hidden links between ME and polio, and shows how we are failing our children as we did in the polio years."
Our Review This should be placed on the desk of every headteacher who has any doubt that a pupil might be only pretending to be ill. Highly recommended. Donít forget to look at the Tymes Trust website Ė see links. Jan LB. ©

Title Somebody help ME
Author Jill I Moss
Year Published 1995
ISBN 0-9525783-0-1
Back Cover "[This book] is written primarily for young people with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, and their families, but it is equally readable by sufferers and friends of all ages who need a straightforward approach to understanding this illness."
Our Review The diagrams of brain receptors as boats are useful to parents and kids with other executive function difficulties such as ADD/ADHD and Dyslexia/Dyspraxia as well as CFS/ME. They really have helped my kids understand what has been difficult for them. Some of Jill Moss writings about the Cytokine kid may well prove to have been insight ahead of its time into the matrix of Autistic Spectrum and Fatigue illnesses with an underlying immunological cause.

Title Zoe's Win
Author Jane Colby
Year Published 1999
ISBN 0-9537330-0-9
Back Cover "ME is the biggest cause of long-term sickness absence from school. [...] Through the medium of storytelling, Zoe's Win demonstrates the nature of the illness itself, and shows young people how it is possible to adapt and win through."
Our Review Gives vital information, hope, courage and understanding to children and teenagers afflicted by CFS/ME. Jan LB. ©
