We're all obsessive round here - well, about our bowels anyway. I'm sure that's why my doctor thinks, anyway.I don't know why the book is not advertised on the site. Maybe Jeffrey Roberts could answer that. I imagine that the publishers of any book about IBS would alert various sites to get maximum publicity and these particular publishers have not done so. Or maybe Jeffrey needs to be alerted to a book in order for it to be publicised.I had correspondence with the publishers and author of the book, after I met the author in person. Carol Sinclair seemed to be a very nice, genuine, obliging woman, who showed an interest in the site when I mentioned it to her, whereas the publishers were interested in how I could give publicity for the book rather than how the author could help with individual personal questions on a message board.I could give the author the benefit of the doubt and say that maybe she is not internet-savvy, lost my email or has been far too busy. So I don't really want to grovel and beg for her to contribute to our thread. However, the potential to make several sales through this thread and a consequent tricklng effect through to other threads seems to be a wasted opportunity for her.That's my grumble for the day!
