I read pretty voraciously, and by training I have opinions on books.
If you are newly diagnosed, your family member has Crohn’s/Colitis, it’s often hard to figure out which books are the best out there. I want to urge and encourage everybody to read as much as humanely possible. Reading, acquiring knowledge will empower you, give you perspective on life with IBD and in general is a sexy thing to do!
Here are a few reviews on books that I liked:
Fred Saibil: Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis- Everything you need to know
New York Times in-depth Report: Crohn’s Disease
