Here's an easy-to-read and understand guide to a menacing rare disease for anyone suffering from BOOP. The book is written by the physician who discovered this lung inflammation disease in the 1980's. I like his no-nonsense approach to taking charge of your body as you work through the ups and downs of the disease, using the devil drug prednisone, relapses, and mind over matter in the process. Additionally, he outlines how to be in charge of you at the hands of the physicians, rather than merely submitting to whatever they deem appropriate. This is a must-read for both patient and physician! --Amazon
