I'd like to hear from those of you who have done a lot of research in tick-borne diseases. If you had to pick 10 of the best documents (be they books, articles, videos, etc.) on the subject, what would you pick? Please list Title/Author(s)/Link, if possible.

If you have trouble choosing, please consider:

1. Accuracy
2. Authority (how does the author back up what is said)
3. Helpfulness
4. Readability

I will consider your picks in the creation of an archive, so here's your chance to say what's important to you. Hope you'll join in,

Shazdancer

Since you asked, cavey...

quote:
Do you mean 'science' books, articles, i.e. articles/books that are 'dense' with the science and citations etc?
Yes, I'm looking for books, articles, and audio/visual materials that give good information about Lyme and other tick-borne diseases. Yes, I would've included Polly Murray's book in my top 10, also, because she was there at the beginning, and her first-hand knowledge is invaluable to understanding the modern history of Lyme research and treatment. I liked Edlow's book for that, too.
quote:
What is your 'audience'?
The primary audience would be patients, then caregivers, followed by healthcare professionals, researchers, legislators, and insurance professionals.

Since the primary audience is patients, I thought it would be a good idea to poll a few! (Even though I am a patient and a caregiver, so I have some idea of what I would look for.) I suppose that the most frequently-asked questions on Lymenet concern diagnosis ("Could this be Lyme?") and treatment ("How do people get better?"), so an archive should address those questions with information on both "sides" of the issue.

And for what purpose?
It's a project I'm working on for school, and for the Lyme community. Was that vague enough for ya? [Big Grin]

P.S. -- I haven't read "Biography of a Germ" yet, though I was able to peruse it at the college library the other day. I was disheartened that he didn't include a bibliography or references for all the cool information! But he was on the right track -- scientific information in layman's terms.
