The authors' discovery--based on a nationwide survey of people with arthritis--of the importance of nutrition in combatting arthritis pain puts relief within the reach of thousands. Praised by health care professionals and medical experts as one of the most valuable books on arthritis available and contains a 30-day meal plan and advice on treatments, surgery, and exercise.

This work, like the authors' Backache Relief ( LJ 3/15/85), is based on a survey of voluntary participants, this time about arthritis treatments. The authors have also read the related medical literature--the book's section on prescription and over-the-counter drugs is very current and informative--but this should not be seen as lending scientific veracity to their work. Basically, this is a survey analysis; for example, 146 of the 1051 participants had used gold shots with 50 (34 percent) claiming dramatic relief and 35 (24 percent) no relief. The value of this data is difficult to determine. The most interesting parts of the book are the participants' anecdotal comments and the sections dealing with nutrition and outlook. Both rheumatoid and osteoarthritis are discussed, but there is no mention here, beyond a rare reference, to osteoporosis. However, this may help readers to make an informed decision about arthritis treatment. First serial rights to Good Housekeeping ; Prevention Book Club selection.
