Hi,

I've been hearing about a book written by an RN who has celiac disease, and the book is meant to help patients and doctors to know how to recognize celiac disease and its symptoms. I can't find much info on the book except that it is available on various book websites. There's no date on the book listing though, so I'm not sure when it was published. Before I order the book, I thought I'd ask if anyone else has seen it, read it, heard of it, and if it is helpful.

Recognizing Celiac Disease, by Cleo J. Libonati

thanks!

Did you see this site about the book? http://www.recognizingceliacdisease.com/7.html

It has pdf pages you can review. It was written in 2007.

I haven't heard of the book. Perhaps you can request your local library to get it then you wouldn't have to buy it. I do that alot. (I homeschool my two girls and use our library ALOT!)

I checked out the website and it looks good...I'm just wondering if the book is useful to justify the cost (I moved to Croatia and getting books delivered here is $$$$$$$...cost of book + delivery+duty+extra taxes= about $100 for a $30 book). The library here definitely won't have the book, well, if they have it, it won't be in English ;)

I'll write to the author and see if maybe there is an electronic version coming out anytime soon, and then I'll wait and order that one. (e-book = no shipping, no duty, no taxes).

thanks for your help!

This may or may not be helpful, but nowadays the libraries of the world are all linked up and on the web. I know that I can log into my local library here in the US, search for a book, and if it's not in our library system, I can find which library nearby or anywhere in the world has it. I was looking for a book about something to do with Washington, DC, and a library nearby had one, but so did a library in Madrid.

I'm in Croatia, so trying to access libraries outside of the country doesn't work because those sites usually block access. It is the same reason I also can't watch any US tv shows, or access things like videos on lots of newspapers and websites. But thanks for the idea. I'm also waiting to hear back from the publisher if they will have a digital version of the book coming out. I'll post their answer when I get it.

Thanks!

Have you considered asking for an e-reader (Kindle, Nook, iPad, etc.) for Christmas? Sounds like you could quickly recover the costs by being able to download books so much cheaper than buying! At $100 a book the Nook looks cheap!
