’People experiencing dizzy spells and healthcare professionals working with them would find this book useful’
Title: Dizziness - Why you feel dizzy & what will help you feel better
Authors: Gregory T Whitman and Robert W Baloh
Publisher: John Hopkins University Press
Reviewer: Debbie Quinn, Queens Nurse
What was it like?
A self-help book for people experiencing dizziness.
What were the highlights?
Surprisingly useful self-help book not only for people experiencing dizziness. It offers reasons why people are dizzy, medical testing, treatments and self-help ideas but equally useful to healthcare workers who work with people who experience dizziness. As a previous MS specialist nurse, I found it really useful.
Strengths & weaknesses
This book is practical and useful. Easy to read and understand without being patronising. Only minor negative was the American medication and treatment options given, which could confuse people and offer some false hope.
Who should read it?
People experiencing dizzy spells and healthcare professionals working with them.
