I have heard Dr. Kalb speak, and she is sympathetic and knowledgeable. I haven't read a chance to read the book yet. It was just published in 2007 so will be more up to date than other guides.

I went into this book expecting it to be an average 'introduction to having MS' book... and it surprised me! This book *is* a very good 'introduction to having MS' book, but goes into a lot more detail than most, and goes into living with it longer-term a lot more than most books like it. Lots of good information, pointers to other resources (even if giving you the phone number for the NMSS on nearly every page of the book does get tiring after awhile), and useful tips. One of the best books in this category I've found. ( )
