About the Author:

The editors of Prevention, all top-level health practitioners, are dedicated to providing authoritative, trustworthy, and innovative advice for a healthy, active lifestyle. Among their titles are The Doctors Book of Home Remedies.

From Booklist:

The Doctors Book of Home Remedies II came out just the other day, but here the Prevention mag guys are again with lots of the same info in a new format they expect will justify a 75,000-copy first printing. They probably expect right, for many think of their discomforts not in terms of proper-named illnesses and syndromes but as irritants they'd just like to know whether to bring to a doctor or handle themselves. Such will warm to this reshuffling of the Prevention database because the first thing each entry counsels is "WHEN TO SEE YOUR DOCTOR": e.g., under "Canker Sores" appear two when-to conditions--"A sore in your mouth does not heal within two weeks" and "You develop a painless sore in your mouth." After the when-tos come, in each entry, succinct instruction on "What Your Symptom Is Telling You" and suggestions for "Symptom Relief." Occasional flashes of humor--e.g., "Somewhere between watching a rerun of `Gilligan's Island' and being branded with a hot poker is a torment called anal pain"--make it enjoyably as well as informatively readable. Ray Olson
