Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Reports suggest that over 100m people around the world are living with Long COVID (more than 1.5m in the UK) yet reliable, clear information and guidance remains scarce. This book is the definitive guide to understanding, managing and treating the condition.

Written by the world's leading immunologist Professor Danny Altmann and expert patient Gez Medinger, The Long COVID Handbook translates cutting-edge science, patient-led research and practical guidance with clarity. This book will equip you with expert information and advice on:

  • Long COVID's 200 symptoms, which include fatigue, brain fog, breathlessness and more
  • Tips for recovery
  • Which treatments are most effective and why
  • Who is most susceptible to the condition and why
  • What we can learn about Long COVID from other chronic illnesses
  • The impact on mental health

This is the essential guide for anyone living with the condition, as well as clinicians seeking to better understand this little-understood illness.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Fantastic!

Brilliantly read and amazing content. Gives us long haulers some hope. Thank you to Gez and Danny for their hard work with the content of this book. As a long hauler myself (since March 2020) there were things I didn’t know, things I knew but were reminded to ensure I carried out and a reassuring feel that I am not alone in this.

excellent guide to long covid

excellent guide for my partner who has long covid and myself. the joint authorship works well with main voice particularly easy to listen to. I wondered if in audio it would be too complex to follow but not at all. Totally recommend for anyone living with this condition looking for reliable information

Read it!

This book should be read by everyone who has or know someone who has long covid. If you work with people that have long covid, this has to be on your “to be read” list. I wish I had had the energy earlier in my “long covid adventure” to read this, but one and a half year in I finally made it through. It feels validating and has some great suggestions for what you can do, and also give you so hope.

Missing PDF pages?

Amazing resource and huge thanks to Gez Medinger and Professor Danny Altmann for all the work you both do for those of us suffering with Long Covid. Only question is, I am more than half way through and there are multiple references to the accompanying PDF but what I have received is only 6 pages long. Gez seems to reference the PDF suggesting there will be specific links and diagrams but these don’t seem to be available . Maybe we are missing some of the PDF ?

Very imforative

I purchased this audiobook in order to better understand what my wife is going through. Being raised in a family where you bury your head in the sand when dealing with health issues, it was hard for me to empathise with what she was going through. This book has helped me greatly and I now have a better understanding of her issues and what to expect
