Unrelenting in her fight against chronic fatigue syndrome, Charnas (Living Well with Chronic Illness) offers an incisive supplement to her previous book with 100 tips composed of ten chapters, each containing a common theme of encouragement. The author's advice focuses on those managing chronic illness; however, the timely affirmations serve a much wider audience seeking positive resolutions to daily life pressures. A recurring thread throughout emphasizes the importance of living in the moment and finding creative solutions in challenging circumstances ("When outside forces change, I have to change, too. Maximizing my health not only requires planning, but it also demands flexibility").
VERDICT An excellent resource worthy of multiple reads. For those with a determined spirit during discouraging times.
