"A timely and essential book. Jackson is a world-renowned expert on the effects of illness on cognitive functioning, and he seamlessly weaves together patient narratives, his own personal struggles, and cutting-edge research to create a uniquely empowering and insightful book. Clearing the Fog is not only for those suffering from Long Covid; it should be read by family members, by healthcare workers, by anyone who has been touched by this pandemic--which is, ultimately, all of us."--Daniela Lamas, author of You Can Stop Humming Now
"For two decades, I've witnessed my colleague, Dr. Jim Jackson, expertly care for and support patients struggling with newly-acquired cognitive impairment and mental health difficulties after illness and into survivorship. His wisdom and empathy--on display throughout the pandemic in his treatment of patients with Long Covid--is distilled here on the pages of Clearing the Fog, a kind, profoundly human, and practical resource for long haulers, their families, and Health Care professionals. Grounded in science and guided by compassion, Clearing the Fog presents a way forward to the millions navigating Long Covid and other chronic illnesses such as ME/CFS, Long Lyme, or fibromyalgia, people who have been dismissed for far too long. Dr. Jackson has listened to their concerns and provides solutions wherever possible and empathy when answers remain elusive. His book fulfills a driving unmet need in the literature and will bring hope to many."--Wes Ely, MD, author of Every Deep-Drawn Breath
