It is with great pleasure (and relief) that I announce the publication of the book Genetic Mistakes, Understanding and Living with Fatty Acid Oxidation Disorders. It is available for pre-order now through the publisher. Just email Tricia Worthington at firstname.lastname@example.org and enter Prepub20 in the subject line of the email.
This book was written for both laymen experiencing one of these disorders in their own families and primary-level physicians and other professionals who may be dealing with their first case. It will make a useful addition to many medical libraries and will be indispensable for family doctors and patients.
I have spent a year and a half of my life writing this book. I have read hundreds of academic papers on the subject and interviewed many people. I also have a family connection to one of these disorders, though this book is not about that. My co-author and I will likely not make very much on the sale of this book, even though it is a bit pricey at $82. The pricing was not up to us. I did choose to go the route of traditional publication in order to give the book the gravitas it needs to reach the professional audience that most requires this information.
I am indebted to my co-author for her contributions and to the many people who supported me through this effort. I hope the book makes a difference in the lives of those affected. If you are in a position to request that this book be purchased for your library, school, or other organization, please do so. Knowledge is power.
