Here are some reactions from the world's leading authorities on M.E./CFS to
The Nightingale Research Foundation "has broken new ground in compiling and
editing a broad range of information about one of the most devastating of all
chronic illnesses, braving the Zeitgeist by presenting ideas not only from the
common wisdom of traditional medicine and research, but also from the worthy
individuals in step with other drummers. The scope of your text is far-ranging
and you leave no stone, no virus, unturned. The book is, to say the least,
provocative and I'm sure that it will serve to stimulate researchers around the
world to accept the challenge you have set before them. But most of all, your
text will give new hope to many patients that finally the medical community is
beginning to take this illness seriously." Walter J. Gunn, PhD, President,
Arlington Associates Inc., and former Center for Disease Control (CDC), Atlanta,
Principal Investigator for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) Studies.
