Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The director of the Pulmonary Function Laboratory at New York University and his wife, a medical writer, have produced an excellent sourcebook for asthma sufferers. They thoroughly explain the disease and the various medications used to control it. They also cover the harmful effects of stress, anxiety, allergies, and air pollution and the benefits of exercise and relaxation therapies. The chapters on pregnancy and the care of asthmatic children will be of interest to parents. Lists of information sources and summer camps for asthmatics are included. Recommended for most health collections. Robert Schmid, Univ. of Health Sciences/Chicago Medical Sch., LRC, North Chicago
