it feels good to be checking proofs for my upcoming book for patients living with Crohn’s or colitis. To tell the truth, this book has been the easiest (it took just 3 months) and, at the same time, most challenging to write of all my works. Being a scientist, I always write about other people and thus I am a newbie in writing about myself. Combining my perspectives of a health professional and scientist with that of a regular human being living with a chronic illness felt at times weird. Do I reveal too much or too little? I guess I will know very soon. The book will be published in the coming months by wonderful Hammersmith Books who have patiently guided me through the process of becoming a popular science author. Now, the counting starts till the time when the book lands on a shelf in my bookshop. Can’t wait!
