Author Pamela Weintraub does a very good job of navigating the confusing and conflicting waters of Lyme Disease -- the difficulty getting a diagnosis and proper treatment.  Her family was intimately affected by Lyme and she's able to share the road they traveled as both an insider and a science writer.

Minnesota/Wisconsin and New England are the geographic hot spots for Lyme and other infections spread by ticks.  A must-read for anyone affected by Lyme or suffering from an as-of-yet undiagnosed illness (also just a very well-written non-fiction book that anyone would enjoy).  We have heard from several people in Como that they or their family/friends have been affected by Lyme.

From the International Lyme and Associated Disease Society:  "A groundbreaking investigation into the medical history, patient experience and brutal political war over Lyme disease."
