    I just went to Amazon, and it appears that this book is only available as an ebook. It isn't free as of yet, unless you sign up for Amazon Prime. So check back the 22nd? I have never ordered an ebook, but what I understand is that the ebook is downloadable to Amazon's Kindle. Or you can download software from Amazon to make your PC operate like a Kindle reader.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong about any of these details. Thanks.

    I wonder how long this will take to download on a dial-up connection?

    This one-of-a-kind reference – now completely revised and updated
    –includes over 100 effective treatments, from antivirals to vitamins, as
    well as locations of CFS specialists and clinics, Internet ordering
    information, and national, local, and international CFS/ME organizations.
    New and expanded sections include doctors' protocols and research on the
    causes and mechanisms of the illness, all written in concise,
    easy-to-understand language.

    Every aspect of the illness is thoroughly examined, from diagnosis to an
    in-depth discussion of symptoms, from traditional to alternative therapies
    to essential coping strategies. The revised Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: A
    Treatment Guide remains the most comprehensive reference guide on this
    illness.

    Praise for the First Edition:
    “This reference guide is objective, comprehensive, and clear. It will be a
    valuable tool for all CFS patients. Every health-care professional who
    treats CFS should also have a copy of this book."
    ~Dr. Thomas Steinbach, CFS specialist and Internist, Houston, Texas

    “I am going to recommend this book to every new patient I see. It is well
    balanced and complete. It is the best book I have read on this topic in
    years.”
    ~Dr. David Bell, CFS specialist, Lyndonville, NY, and author of The
    Doctor's Guide to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

    Praise for the Second Edition:

    “Verrillo’s book is the encyclopedia of current information about Chronic
    Fatigue Syndrome. She not only covers history and theoretical etiologies of
    CFS, but provides the very best source for current therapies, which is what
    people with CFS really want to know! This is a reference book that every
    patient should have. I encourage all my patients to use this as the
    “go-to-reference” about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.”
    ~Dr. Charles Lapp, M.D., Founder, Hunter-Hopkins Center, and
    medical advisor to the CFIDS Association of
    America and the National Fibromyalgia Association.


    "This book is extremely comprehensive and very well referenced, not only
    with regard to the full range of treatments that have been helpful, both
    alternative and pharmaceutical, but also including detailed descriptions of
    the history of this disorder, its definitions, diagnosis, symptoms,
    prognosis, mechanisms, and other aspects. All of this is done in a very
    readable style. I highly recommend this book."
    ~Dr. Richard Van Konynenburg, Ph.D., Independent CFS/ME
    researcher


    “Books such as this empower patients to take control of their own health
    education and management... I admire Ms. Verrillo's comprehensive and
    cross-disciplinary research and feel her new work will continue to provide
    important and useful information to everyone interested in the field."

    ~Dr. Lucinda Bateman M.D., Director, Fatigue Consultation
    Clinic, and co-founder of OFFER (The Organization for Fatigue and
    Fibromyalgia Education and Research)

    "There is simply no other treatment guide on the market that is presented
    with such expansive coverage, making this a 'must' for any health
    collection and for any reader concerned with understanding the extent of
    CFS."
    ~Midwest Book Review

    I will give it a try overnight and see what happens. I thought about trying to download it and put it on a CD at the public library, but was not able to get there today. It will not be open tomorrow.

    You could likely download the Kindle app at the library, but may be OK on a dial-up. Depending whether you have a mac or pc it is about 32 - 44 mb (a few minutes on a slow DSL, for example). I do not think you can download an e-book without having the kindle/kindle app, so would need to do that back on your home computer in either case.

    Yes, I was thinking I could download the Kindle app at the library. The library is not open on Sunday. Sunday is the last day the e-book can be downloaded. I was planning on downloading the book on my computer overnight and getting the Kindle app sometime later. If I have to have the app to get the e-book, then I will have to do both here. I guess I will find out before too long.

    Tip: I was bummed because I do not have a kindle, but I found an free App in amazon so I can read the book from my cell.

    I am sooo happy I got it, I wish I had something like this when I started, it saves a lot of research time.

    Help Needed!

    I got the free e-reader downloaded last night. I just now went to download the e-book and they asked me for an e-mail address. Do they e-mail the e-book rather than downloading it? I don't really want to give them my yahoo address because I know that Yahoo collects information on account holders (that is why they are free) and I don't want them to know I have ME. I am afraid that my ISP provided e-mailbox is not big enough to hold a book.

    No, they do not send the book by email. It is just so they can spam you later.

    Thanks, Kina, that was fast! I definitely want the spam to go to yahoo. I guess there is no such thing as a free lunch or a free book. {No criticism of the author's generous gesture intended.}

    Little Bluestem, I've been doing business with Amazon for years, both as a buyer and a seller, and have not been spammed by them. I hope you find the ebook useful. I hadn't intended to download it but saw your post about needing help, so I downloaded the Kindle app and then the book to see how the process worked.

    You are lucky Merry because I regularly get unwanted emails from them. I do not mind though because I order lots of stuff from them and their service is excellent. It is the price of doing business on the Internet.

    Sorry, Kina. I wasn't saying you don't know what you are talking about. I wasn't sure if you were kidding about the spam. I've never downloaded an ebook before. Is the download of an ebook what sets off the spam? Is there a way for you to turn off spam in your Amazon account?
