Format: Paperback
I hope I never need the information in this book, but it is a good reference to have on hand. Everything from childhood diseases to food poisoning to anthrax is covered, in a way that is easy to understand. A useful resource for "regular people".

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Linda G. Senter on July 7, 2002
Format: Paperback
This book was extremely helpful in explaining the various diseases and infections we are all hearing so much about today. We are all frightened by this topic and Dr. Perlin's book covered these topics in a very clear and concise manner that anyone could understand. Knowledge is power and this book will help everyone who reads it to better understand the risks that lie ahead.

Format: Paperback
A great reference book --- concise and easily readable. It illuminates the diseases we most fear today and brings their backgrounds and transmission down to the layman's level. I especially like the anecdotes Dr. Perlin has inserted in individual chapters to help us better understand disease causes, transmission and effects. A must for the household library!

Format: Paperback
From Anthrax to the West Nile Virus and all forms of common and uncommon diseases in between, Perlin and Cohen present this must have information in an easy to follow format. They deal clearly with such topics as current and horrifying as bioterrorism as well as the more common yet equally deadly hazards of under cooked chicken and beef. This book is an excellent source of practical information for families and belongs next to the aspirin and other medical supplies.
