Valuable medical resource May 4, 2007
We have used this book long and often over the years (and were thrilled to find a replacement copy). It is quite useful to check symptoms against potential conditions and the alternative treatment options are a breath of fresh air vs. traditional medicine. It's the most user-friendly and well formatted home medical reference that we've found.
(We come from healthcare and information research backgrounds ourselves and we recommend it as a fine home health reference to go to before turning to a personal medical prefessional.)
