From Library Journal
This guide to bodily symptoms and what to do about them includes 19 chapters covering 400 symptoms and 180 common conditions. Each chapter opens with symptoms requiring immediate medical attention, then discusses less critical ones (hiccups and creaking joints) and home treatment, and closes with commonly occuring health conditions of the body part or system under discussion. Well-budgeted libraries may want this; less well-endowed libraries that already have the American Medical Association Family Medical Guide ( LJ 11/15/82) may pass it by. Written in a lively style, the book is valuable in its coverage of less serious symptoms. Carol Spielman Lezak, General Learning Corporation, Northbrook, Ill.
