I thought there was a thread in which someone recommended the best books for LE info, but I don't see it now. Does anyone have a book they feel is a "must?"

I just got this book and it seems excellent--I have started doing the breathing and self massage. I will take it with me next week to see the therapist and hopefully she agrees with the book and that I've been doing it all correctly.
