“... enlightening and loaded with updates from recent research. All physicians treating patients with fatigue should read it.”—Ingvard Wilhelmsen, MD, PhD, The New England Journal of Medicine


“Advances in our understanding of the brain's workings have revitalized our faltering efforts to understand the ubiquitous symptom of fatigue. This book is a succinct yet comprehensive summary of what we have learned so far.”
Michael Sharpe, Professor of Psychological Medicine and Symptoms Research, University of Edinburgh
“This important book embraces a very welcome shift in the neurological study of the brain, broadening the horizons of thinking about fatigue states across the boundaries of individual diseases and disciplines. It also offers a more sophisticated conceptualization of fatigue to include notions of perceived effort, motivation, and accompanying affect. Researchers in this field have long needed a summary of such approaches for further investigation; this book provides it.”
Andrew Lloyd, School of Medical Sciences, University of New South Wales, Australia
