There are a number of aspects of this book that I love. It is easy to read. It is written as though the authors are having a friendly, chatty conversation with the reader. The authors encourage patients to attend their GP by making a longer consultation time with them. They also discuss what diseases need to be excluded and why certain tests (such as iron levels and thyroid function) are performed by the GP. The role of depression in fatigue is also given due respect.
