Description - The Puzzle Solver: A Scientist's Desperate Hunt to Cure Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Save His Son by Tracie White

At the age of twenty-seven, a mysterious illness began to eat away at Whitney Dafoe. It stole away the strength of his legs, then his voice, and his ability to eat, until even the sound of a footstep in his room became unbearable. For years, he underwent endless medical tests until finally receiving a diagnosis: Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

With no cure or successful treatment, Whitney's father, Ron Davis, PhD-a world class geneticist at Stanford University whose legendary research helped crack the code of DNA-suddenly changed the course of his career in a race against time to cure his son's debilitating condition.

In The Puzzle Solver, journalist Tracie White-who wrote the viral and award-winning piece on Ron and his family in Stanford Medicine-tells the full story. In gripping prose, she masterfully takes readers along on this journey with Davis to solve one of the greatest mysteries in medicine.
