"The Lupus Book" Dr Wallace 4th Edition

A mention that the 4th Edition ( Oct 2008) that's supposed to be 8 )of Dr Wallace's "The Lupus Book" is now available. Sometimes described as the "Lupus Bible", this is the most comprehensive book about lupus written for the layperson by one of the world's foremost lupologists. A must for anybody who wants to find out about all aspects of lupus in comprehensible depth.
I myself do not recommend it for lupus beginners or for giving to family and friends to educate them - there are much better ways of getting early stage general information. Also a good many of the topics will never apply to one person, and the chapters about immunology are hard going and of academic rather than practical interest, to my mind anyway.

This is a link to extracts from the 3rd edition I think, to get a flavour of it.,M1

If you are thinking of buying books about lupus, please remember that by ordering from Amazon UK & USA via this site you will raise money to help maintain the site and forum. There's also the Amazon store for general items.

Joanne, the site founder and owner supports it from her own pocket.

Thank you Joanne !

Hi Karol,

Judging by your posts to others, you already have this book - probably the 3rd edition, but there won't be huge changes between editions - just some updates where research has revealed new things.

Have you read "The Lupus Book" by Dr. Daniel Wallace? If not I would suggest you buy it as it is written in layman terms and a good book for reference purposes too.
So, since you reccomend it to others I take it you were more than capable of understanding and appreciating it:wink2:
