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...

    Best ignored. The write up belongs in National inquirer along with Aliens from Space shot JFK.

    He's read a book by Shorter and is now trying to sound clever. Unworthy of notice.

    @Kyla I agree. Dr. Phil Kronk looks foolish in having chosen to quote and report on the opinions of Dr. Edward Shorter as presented in his long out-of-date (1993) book "From Paralysis to Fatigue: A History of Psychosomatic Illness in the Modern Era". I'd forgotten about this "gem". Fortunately, Amazon.com includes only eleven customer reviews -- an indication that few people have read it. Of those reviews. 55% gave it a 1-star rating, with an averaged rating of 2.5/5. Most of the low ratings are recent -- 2015. The more positive reviews are not so current. So, it seems some progress is being made with respect to accurate understanding of ME.

    I misread that as "a few germs" which seems appropriate.
