This 14th edition of a much-needed resource (in 2018, 45 percent of Americans were living with at least one chronic illness) covers the state of chronic disease in the United States and presents a five-step “after your diagnosis” planning guide. Detailed entries for 90 chronic conditions, including seizure disorders, heart disease, hearing loss, and war syndromes, offer contact info and websites for national and state associations, support groups, foundations, and research centers. The work concludes with general resources, such as lists of wish foundations and bereavement support services.
VERDICT This comprehensive volume, written in supportive, nontechnical language, is a solid option for public libraries; retirement and assisted living center libraries may also wish to consider.
