I am woefully behind in posting about some of the books we’ve worked on in the last 6 to 8 months, but as the spring allergy season wages war on the hills of Virginia, I think a lot about this great book by Dr John Hunt. (Though, of course, allergies may not be causing your child’s asthma!)
Dr. Hunt has written a fantastic guide for parents with children with asthma, explaining what exactly could be going on in the asthmatic child’s body and how to help. He is a particularly good source of information because not only is he a pediatric pulmonologist and an allergist/immunologist, he also grew up with asthma and has children who have asthma.
In this book Dr. Hunt emphasizes that asthma is a symptom, not a disease, and he focuses on helping parents find out what is causing their child’s asthma — not all cases of asthma are the same and each patient should be treated as an individual.
Invisible Order had the pleasure of working with Dr. Hunt through the editing, ebook conversion, typesetting, and publication stages of this book.
