An advocate, nurse, health educator, and patient, Porter describes her first book, Free from Hepatitis C, as a guide to the disease from diagnosis through treatment, and this book as a toolkit with daily tips and encouraging words--more a coach than a manual. After chapters on how to use the book and preparing for treatment, she walks readers through the 48 weeks of treatment a few at a time. Final chapters consider waiting for results and when treatment does not work. Annotation ©2013 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
