Few people now dismiss ME (chronic fatigue) as "yuppie flu", but widespread ignorance about the condition still exists. In this book, ME sufferer and former headteacher, Jane Colby, outlines ME's rise, its ridicule, its hidden links with polio, the particular problems of children and how schools can help. It includes interviews with ME specialists and a section on how to recognise and distinguish it from school phobia. Pounds 12.95 from: First and Best in Education, 01832 275285.
