Abstract
Eighty of the world's leading ME/CFS authorities have contributed their knowledge to produce a 750-page encyclopedia on the disease process that may be one of the biggest single causes of chronic illness in the world today. Known in the United States as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and in Great Britain both as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and Post-Viral Fatigue Syndrome, ME/CFS has provoked a chronic disabling illness in an estimated 1,000,000 persons in North America and Europe.
This book provides, in one superb 75-chapter source, an up-to-date, comprehensive account of current knowledge concerning the history, epidemiology, children with M.E., investigation, virology, immunology, muscle pathology, host response, food intolerance, brain mapping, neurophysiology, neuropsychology, psychiatry, sleep dysfunction, fibromyalgia syndrome, treatment and management.
This is an essential reference book for medical, government and public library reference rooms. This text is a unique vehicle for researchers, physicians and other health education and government officials, and is easily understandable by the general public interested in ME/CFS.

Abstract
Knowing when your personal boundaries are violated - and what to do about it when they are - isn't a simple skill. It requires a surprising amount of self-awareness that only a firm sense of your own value and limits can provide.
If you feel like you have trouble saying no to others, at work or at home, or if you feel your life being squandered by good but unintentional activities and relationships, this book can help you establish more effective boundaries. The authors explain the differences between boundaries and walls, explore a variety of boundary problems, and help you assess your own boundaries and make necessary adjustments. Throughout, they teach you how to view yourself as a treasure to be protected, so that you can learn how to enjoy a life of evolving authenticity.
