New IBS Book - Sophie's Story: My 20-Year Battle with Irritable Bowel Syndrome

I found out about this book when Sophie emailed me, complimenting my blog (that will get you a mention on The ICIE anytime you're promoting a product I like or think is valid - you Viagra people and your ilk can forget about it).  Sophie noted that I also live with IBS, and asked me to link to her book on my blog.

Sophie also has an excellent website called IBS Tales, with lots of "I've been there too" stories and helpful info including a page about the book that includes a sneak peek at the contents and introduction.
