This volume may well have been entitled “Everything I needed to know about allergy but never learned in medical school.” The authors are recognized “master clinicians” in allergy and immunology and have a combined 70 years of experience in teaching and practice. They have edited a practical, down-to-earth book on allergy for the front-line primary care physician. There are 41 contributors, all of whom are well-known in their respective fields and active clinicians serving a multitude of patients. Most have academic appointments, but several are in full-time private practice. There is no ivory tower perspective gleaned from the writing in this book.
