Review: 'Through the Shadowlands’ describes Julie Rehmeyer's ME/CFS Odyssey
I should note at the outset that this review is based on an audio version of the galleys and the epilogue from the finished work. Julie Rehmeyer sent me the final version as a PDF, but for some reason my text to voice software (Kurzweil) had issues with it. I understand that it is...

    Coyne is planning to carefully analyze the data and publish the analysis:

    This Cochrane review is the main thing slowing progress on PACE and related issues. I've not read this blog yet, but anything to get the situation improved would be good.

    This is my impression as well. It's the life ring to which they cling. Well, one of the life rings (another being The Lancet) but perhaps the biggest.

    They kept re-releasing this one with more evasive responses to concerns.

    Me too. And if the individual trials are unreliable in design, then a review of these trials is equally unreliable.

    But I presume they will mention that in detail.

    From what I
    I would suggest that such a review would be even more unreliable, rather than equally, given the review itself is likely to be biased and subjective.
