This book has averted some crises and saved some lives, let me assure you.

May 27, 2017

Has a helpful guide on how to treat certain conditions and a thorough detailing of everything from A to Z. Also, has a section full of enough actual documented pictures to make you want to lock yourself in a box and hide. Very helpful information.

Use as an ongoing reference. We had the earlier addition and found it very, very helpful. This is much more current and immensely useful.

The family calls it the "You're Gonna Die" book because darn near everything urges you to "seek medical attention now". I suspect it was not written by doctors, but by doctors' lawyers. Save time. Look up the symptoms on the internet.

Mount Laurel Library

Excellent general purpose home medical reference. Well illustrated. Specific details. Mostly common complaints.

Probably not as valuable now that internet research is available.

It's mostly a guide for a healthy lifestyle but there is also description of many medical issues and ways of treatment. No book can replace a doctor, though.

Sep 22, 2013

As with many of the health and medical books I own, I have reads parts of them according to information I needed at that time. I am marking them as "Read" and they are all 5 stars!

If you ever need to know what the symptoms for gastroenteritis are...come to me.

I also know how to deliver a baby...get a bug out of your to treat frost bite.
