Library Journal - Library Journal
As allergies increase in affluent countries (for instance, one in four adolescents in the United States has symptoms of asthma), several recent books have addressed the need for allergen-free interior environments; among them, this attractive, well-made, well-organized, and well-illustrated title stands out. In their introductory chapters, Howarth, a physician specializing in allergies, and medical writer Reid describe various types of allergies as well as symptoms and causes. They then turn their attention to the home, with chapters on cleaning, heating, floors and walls, furnishings, and fixtures. Ideal rooms are described in detail, while numerous sidebars highlight and condense key points. For each ideal room, these include "Changes To Make" and "Cleaning Timetable." This book is an excellent complement to Thomas Leo Ogren's Allergy-Free Gardening: A Revolutionary Approach to Landscape Planning (LJ 4/15/00) and Sylvia Goldfarb's Allergy Relief: Effective Natural Allergy Treatments (LJ 5/1/00).--Carol Cubberley, Univ. of Southern Mississippi, Hattiesburg Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
