What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
"The latest 'Dummies' book to broach the subject of celiac disease is a refreshing take on a serious condition because it provides, along with all the medical facts and helpful hints, a huge dose of respect for the patient and humour. If you are looking for an excellent overall reference on all aspects of celiac disease, written in non-medical, approachable language, this is it."
—Janet Dalziel, President, Canadian Celiac Association
