I enjoyed the preview of "Asthma: The at Your Fingertips Guide" because though the information was based on your experience and perspective, I did not feel that it was presented in a dogmatic fashion. The information was written clearly and showed an open mind.
As a Registered Nurse, Holistic Asthma Consultant, author and publisher of a holistic asthma book, my experience of over 30 years as a Holistic Health Practitioner has led me to different experiences using complementary/integrative approaches to managing asthma and asthma attacks than the ones expressed in your book.
I find "Asthma: The at Your Fingertips Guide" to be a very good reference book and will be ordering one for my shelf.
Thank you so much for your work.
