Review:

It's high time the public had a rational, reasoned, non-emotional source of sound information on the subject and that's why "Swine Flu / H1N1: The Facts" by Professor Terence Stephenson (President of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child health, United Kingdom) is such a welcome relief to the popular hysteria arising from the wide-spread (and often politically motivated) confusion concerning this particular form of influenza... Of special note is the Professor Stephelnson's informed and informative text is couched in thoroughly 'reader friendly' language making it especially recommended for the non-specialized general reader and all community/school Health & Medicine reference collections. Author: The Midwest Book Review

This book is still relevant and we can learn from the sound explanations and in fact the author managed to clarify the issues involved in a calm sober and sound way... Jessica Kingsley Publishers is recommended for this little timely book at a time, when people were confused and worried. Author: International Journal of Adolescent Medicine and Health

Could there be a more timely book than Swine Flu/H1N1 - The Facts! This concise, informative, and easy-reading book will help parents, teachers, children and adolescents understand H1N1 flu. There is a great deal of anxiety that the H1N1 flu will be the next great epidemic of disease. This quick read will help all of us to deal with our anxieties and understand more about H1N1 flu. Author: Howard Bauchner, MD, Boston University School of Medicine and Editor-in-Chief, Archives of Disease in Childhood
