    "straightforward information"
    Any additional comments?

    This is obviously a book for someone who wants to know about the disease, ulcerative colitis. I found it to be straight forward and informative. It gives a very good overview of what is known about this disease.

    The topics range from talking about possible causes including some statistics, different treatments, nutrition, practical advice about how to cope with this very socially awkward condition, special situations and a lot more. I found the scattering of anecdotal experiences to be very informative and helpful.

    Personally I found the information in the book to leave me feeling a lot more hopeful and even feeling empowered about living with this disease

    The book is written by someone in the UK, so there are a few odd words used. The narrator has a strong English accent, which for me made the book much easier to listen to. Her delivery of the material was done well. The material itself is presented in a very easy to understand way.

    If you or someone close to you gets an ulcerative colitis diagnosis, this book is definitely worth the time and credit.
