I would like to provide a word of caution for those shopping for books on Lyme and related infections. The number of low-quality books being published on tick-borne illnesses is increasing at an alarming rate. Many books, some published by physicians, are nothing more than marketing schemes. Furthermore, I feel the reviews of these books at amazon are often questionable, at times written by people who are financially connected. So please keep this in mind when making your book selection.
