Format: Paperback
It's a crying shame this book's out of print as it's the best therapy I know for hypochondria. It should be on every hypochondriac's shelf right between the Merck Manual and Gray's Anatomy. Every time I have an attack I flip it open to laugh, calm myself and occasionally remind myself of other important symptoms or illnesses I've been neglecting.

I only wish the insect-borne illness section were longer, as I'm currently suffering from an undiagnosed case of eastern equine encephalitis and could use some tips. Perhaps a new expanded edition is in order. After all it's been nearly a quarter of a century and we now have AIDS, West Nile, Ebola, Hanta and Flesh-Eating Disease to contend with. The whole landscape of hypochondria has changed if you think about it.
