Pacing can be done in a variety of ways, and there are several different tools which can be of help.

It covers all degrees of illness severity and there is a special chapter on how to pace education, making the book useful to young readers.
The first part of the book covers basic pacing, and is well suited to beginners, whereas the second part covers advanced pacing, which is relevant to patients who have been ill for a long time and have tried many ways to improve their situation.
The third part of the book consists of chapters on different themes, such as how to pace social activities and big events. Great care has been taken to ensure that the book is as easy to read as possible.
