Very Alternative Guides is a new series of books aiming to tackle medical issues from the point of view of the people who have experienced them at first hand. The books mix text, advice, graphics, images, photographs and humour to help people come to terms with the issues they will encounter following a major operation. The aim of the books is to provide patients and people recovering from specific injuries with material which can help and support them, explaining what they are likely to come up against with the advice and experience of people who have been through it before.
This dedicated website allows you to learn more about the books and how they are made, see example pages and even get in touch. You can also buy the books here too.

The authors are currently planning other Alternative Guide titles. We welcome contact from anyone interested in discussing other research or projects as well as the Guide to Spinal Cord Injury.
