I'm looking for some books on living with Crohn's and would like to know which books where most useful to you?
I am currently reading 'Living with Chronic Pain' 2nd edition by Jennifer Schneider and I've found it very informative and helpful for my pain issues and would recommend it to those who have pain (joint, migraines, fibromyalgia, shingles, back, neuro, etc). There's no info on Crohn's in this book but she's coming out with a book on Crohn's this summer (it's in the healing well book section).

To be honest, I have not bought any books on Crohns, I think this forum has answered most of my questions.

I would be interested in her book that comes out this summer, post it in here when she does!

I thought "The First Year---Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis: An Essential Guide for the Newly Diagnosed" by Jill Skylar was pretty good.

I was going to recommend the First years one, but someone else already did. My favorite isn't a crohn's book, but a nutrition book. "Cooking Well for the Unwell" by Eileen Behan. It is out of print but there are always used copies on Amazon for about $4 or so. She explains all the different types of diets our doctors might put us on at various times during our illness and then gives some recipes for each section. I was always lending it out to friends who had sick family members and never had it when I wanted it, so I bought a second copy.
