    Pretty informational until I read the author's lecture paragraph of why do women fret so much about their hair falling out. I looked to check again who the author was, of course, a man...who knows nothing of the importance of hair to a woman. And fixing the problem of hair fall is not worthless or the least on the list of problems, for if you fix that, you've most likely fixed a multitude of other problems where hair fall is a symptom. I just could not believe his down-playing paragraph and it r Pretty informational until I read the author's lecture paragraph of why do women fret so much about their hair falling out.

I just could not believe his down-playing paragraph and it removed all credibility, caring, compassion, knowledge or understanding that might be found in any other part of the book.

    Very informative. Written in a way that is easy to follow for those not familiar with medical terms (me). Definitely a book to read if you want to learn about autoimmune.

    There were enough weird asides to make me not want Dr. Lahita for my personal doctor, but there is good information here.

    I found this book to be interesting and enlighting. Having several autoimmune diseases it was interesting to read how the immune systems works. It also gave me some further insight into how the immune system effects the rest of the body. I now have many more questions for my doctors and some clarifications on others.
