User Review  - celedon46 - Target

Best book ever for prescription/non prescription information. Easy to understand and very informative. A must have book. I've been buying a new book every few years since the first once (1996). Easier to read and understand than reading off of a monitor. I would definitely recommend this book. Read full review
