Has anyone read a good book about Lupus?

I just finished In Search of the Sun...

I've looked but all of them in the library here are sooooo old. Who is that one written by? Was it good?

It was good, It was co-written my my rheumatologist about 15 years ago (I think) but all of the information is pretty up-to-date because not much haschanged in terms of treatment, etc (sadly) in the last 20 years.

I thought it was very good. There is a whole section in the back with Q&A. I bought it used from barnes and noble (link below). It was probably the best oneI have read so far.

I read Talking About Lupus by Dr Graham Hughes recently, I'd recommend it to anyone!

I just read "The Lupus Book" by Daniel J. Wallace, M.D. I found it pretty informative and accurate. It was written in 1995, updated in 2000, and in 2005. The latest edition I found at Amazon, I'm going to order my own copy. It is written in language the patient can understand.
