MaineLyme has chosen these 6 books to highly recommend. The Horowitz and Singleton books are great for patient information on disease and treatments. The Weintraub book is best for understanding the state of politics at the time of writing. The When Your Child Has Lyme Disease Book is a parents survival guide, and the Crucible is a historical documentary of collective writings and associated materials by one of the pioneer doctors who is treating Lyme disease patients. The Widening Circle is by Polly Murray, the Connecticut Mom who called upon the CDC to investigate the new illness in her family and neighborhood.
