Doing A Little Shopping.....

I bopped over to the Sjogren's Syndrome Foundation site today, and checked in to their Sjogren's -- Related Books page, found here. I haven't visited in awhile and was interested to see several new books listed. Of particular interest:

The Sjögren’s Syndrome Handbook (2011)
edited by Daniel J. Wallace, MD
Published in conjunction with the Sjögren’s Syndrome Foundation, this edition of the Sjögren’s Syndrome Handbook has been completely revised and expanded with ALL NEW articles and the latest information on Sjögren’s syndrome. 
This hard cover book is written by the foremost medical professionals in the field of Sjögren’s. The language is at college level and while the book is medically detailed it is still easy for the lay person to understand. Written with patients and care givers in mind, many patients have found this book to be an excellent gift for their doctors! 
This book contains 35 chapters with new topics covered such as genetics, the nervous system (central, peripheral and autonomic), vasculitis, gynecology and pregnancy, the GI tract, lymphoma, musculoskeletal pain, Vitamin D, and an in-depth look at subjects related to living with Sjögren's and enhancing quality of life. 
The book has over 66 contributors, all of which are some of the greatest minds working on Sjögren’s syndrome today.  
This book is a must for every patient, healthcare professional and library! 
Member Price: $26
Non-Member Price: $30

I did not know that a new version of the Handbook was published. As a member of the SSF, when I order I will receive a discount, yet another benefit of becoming a SSF member.

C'mon US Mail. I want it NOW.

Ohhh!! I did not know about this either. The last one was written in 2003 I believe. Thank you!

I received my copy last week in the mail. The book is really well written and has a lot of very good information. I would highly recommend it. I am still reading my copy, but won't full delve into it until this week of finals is over! :)

What's nice too is that if you have a Kindle, the Kindle version on Amazon is less than $20. ;) That way, I will most definitely have the book handy with me when I need it (to look something up or to show Dr's something, etc...) yippeee!
