This book is written for lay consumption, especially those suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. All aspects are discussed in comprehensive detail; the language is comprehensible. Illustrations are rather crude, but effective, and the complete glossary is most helpful. This should be recommended reading for any perceptive patient who suffers from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, to complement the counsel of the physician.
