Engaging Life:
Living Well With Chronic Illness

In Engaging Life: Living Well With Chronic Illness, Dorothy Firman, Ed.D. discusses harnessing a patient’s inherent strengths—an often overlooked, but vitally important, resource—in order to help the patient deal with chronic illness. Dr. Firman’s book reflects the depth and breadth of her knowledge and experience in this area and is written to be a valuable resource for the doctor, the patient, and anyone working with them.
            This is an important work that, I believe, should be read by all patients dealing with chronic illness, as well as by the medical professionals who aspire to provide the most comprehensive care possible.
            Well done, Dr. Firman! And, thank you.
            Jill E. Becker, MD
