Review of “M.E.? What?” by Lois Bennett

M.E.? What?M.E.? What? by Lois Bennett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A glimpse into the life of someone with ME/CFS. A must-read for anyone who knows a sufferer.

The book is concise, quick and easy to read; more of a booklet than a book. It engages the reader by asking them to imagine various ways in which ME impacts someone’s life, describing the symptoms and attitudes encountered. It includes a section of shocking quotes from people who don’t understand, and a brief description of what the illness is. As a sufferer myself I recommend this book whole-heartedly. It makes its point successfully and without drowning it in unnecessary information.

Anyone who knows a sufferer of ME/CFS should read this book. Anyone who works in the teaching profession should read this book. Employers should read this book. Everyone should read this book. ME is a common illness, at some point in your life you will meet someone with the condition. ME sufferers themselves should get a copy so they can loan out to anyone who needs to understand what it is like.

I hope this book will prove a big step in raising ME awareness, and on behalf of ME sufferers everywhere I would like to thank Lois Bennett for writing it.
