When i took a copy to my Doctors appointment I showed it to my Pulmonary specalist. She did a quick reveiw and said she knew of the Author (Kevon Felner,MD) She asked if it helped me, I told her it answered alot and filled in the void about all the numbers on my lab reports. It helped me become What my doctors call A person in charge of their Health. I strongly recommend that if you or someone you know has this condition they need this book, even if they say they know all about COPD. This book will help them.
