A very interesting book. I bought this before I left for a trip for some light reading on the airplane. I found it quite intriguing. There were many disease I recognized in the book and never knew exactly what happened when you caught them and others I never heard of. I found it a great book to read and was great to read. I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in learning amount disease or anyone who is majoring in Medicine. Ages 14 and up though because some graphic pictures and quite graphic explanations of the symptoms of diseases.
