Disappointed in this book
This book is clear, easy to read, and has a good break-down of signs, what to do, when to call the doctor. However, it's lacking in information. The entire reason I own books like this is to have a reference to turn to in the event something is happening to me or my family and to find out what's wrong. Both times I've referred to it, it hasn't contained any information on what my actual issues were (acid reflux causing chest pain and sores in my daughter's mouth being caused by Hand, Foot, and Mouth disease, which is a common viral infection in kids). If you're planning to purchase two medical reference books, make this one of them. But don't buy it if you just want a know-all, end-all medical book, because this is certainly not it.
A great addition to your reference library
this book covers a wide array of common medical problems and issues. It is easy to understand and easy to find what you need.It has step by step instructions,warnings,questions to ask Dr, and recommendations on hundreds of conditions and is a must for every household. There is also a handy "signs and symptoms index " that tells you what may be wrong.
