"The chapter on anaphylaxis is an excellent summary, particularly Box 77-7 covering the differential diagnosis. As usual, the chapter on unconventional theories is a masterpiece of debunking nonsense allergy, with a robust approach to looking for supportive scientific studies. This is a must-read chapter for all practicing allergists. Equally the following chapter on complementary and alternative medicine gives a useful summary of philosophies of the main complementary therapies." By Imnunology News, Mar 2015
