What Is M.E.? is a book by Jodi Bassett and Dr Byron Hyde.

Publisher's synopsis[edit | edit source]

(This synopsis was provided by the publisher for promotional purposes. For book reviews, please see Links section below.)

Essential information on the neurological disease M.E. sourced from the world’s leading M.E. experts - in the form of a concise 70 page booklet.

Suitable for M.E. patients, their friends and family, partners, carers, lawyers or doctors. The book includes a foreword by international M.E. expert Dr Byron Hyde.

M.E. is a distinct neurological disease and is not at all the same thing as ‘CFS.’ Learning the facts is not time-consuming or complicated.

Jodi Bassett is the founder of the international M.E. charity, HFME. Jodi contracted M.E. in 1995 when she was just 19. HFME contributors also aim to advocate for those non-M.E. patients who have been given the always meaningless ‘CFS’ diagnosis, and subsequently denied correct diagnosis and treatment.

Note that this is a summarised 70 page booklet, and not the full-length and more in-depth book 'Caring for the M.E. Patient.'
