Connecting your questions to the answers you actually need.

Some people refer to me as a reading maniac.  I’d prefer to consider myself a lover of books (a bibliophile, if you will).  So having a segment of this site dedicated to books was all but inevitable.

This is a collection of reviews and thoughts on the books that I have read which may be relevant to someone with a GI diagnosis (you!).  As such, this is a constantly expanding list.  If a book or topic you are looking for is not mentioned now, it may be later.  Or, if you think that a particular book deserves a spotlight on this page, shoot me your thoughts.

My reviews cover books which I respect as well as those which I would caution against.  With every book, I will indicate who (if anyone at all) may benefit the most from what it contains.  These are, of course, opinions.  But they are opinions that are rooted in the desire to spread useful and reliable information in place of conjecture and false hopes.

My Books:

No reviews here – talk about a conflict of interest!  But I do think this one’s pretty good.  Just sayin’…
