About 25 million (or one in 12) U.S. Americans of all ages suffer from asthma. For some asthma is a minor nuisance, but for many it impacts their school- and workdays, as well as their home life and recreational activities; it can also be life-threatening. In this book, medical writer Kelly explores the nature of asthma; its possible causes (including environmental and genetic causes); diagnosis, and symptoms; treatments and their benefits and side effects; and current research on future treatments and potential cures.
VERDICT An excellent and concise, yet clear and comprehensive overview of a common disease. Should benefit new and longtime asthma patients, their parents and other relatives, and school personnel.
