Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Claiming to "approach asthma in a revolutionary fashion," Firshein mainly promotes here his Comprehensive Asthma Prevention Program (CAPP). The CAPP aims to reduce or eliminate reliance on drugs alone so that asthma can be managed through "a lifestyle revolution that will restore vitality and healthnot just help you breathe." It is unlikely that asthmatics will find any of the information in this book completely new. Chapters on diagnosis, medications and their side effects, environmental triggers, diet and food allergies, exercise-induced asthma, breathing exercises, and stress management using a variety of methods from biofeedback to yoga are common to other books on asthma and allergies. The lack of a bibliography is a major drawback, especially because the text makes numerous references to articles or studies supposedly published in major medical journals. Firshein is a doctor of osteopathy and a radio show host and has a private practice in New York City. An optional purchase.Kate Kelly, Treadwell Lib., Massachusetts General Hosp., Boston
