    Viewpoint: Chronic fatigue syndrome: understanding a complex illness

    Stephen T. Holgate, Anthony L. Komaroff, Dennis Mangan & Simon Wessely

    I thought Holgate was okay too, and Wessely seemed like the outlier. The article left me feeling somewhat hopeful that we might be moving away from the quackery of the past. It has been posted before though.
