‘Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and Post Viral Fatigue States: the Saga of the Royal Free Disease’ by Dr Melvin Ramsay. This is a reprint of Dr Melvin Ramsay’s book to mark the 50th anniversary in 2005 of the outbreak at the Royal Free Hospital.
“Dr Ramsay’s description of the classic symptoms of ME has not been bettered. His account of early outbreaks of ME around the world has provided researchers with all kinds of clues about the way in which an apparently simple viral infection can lead to such a serious and disabling illness.
“The book has also proved to be a fascinating read for anyone with personal experience of the illness,” Dr Charles Shepherd, Hon. Medical Adviser, ME Association.
