The book is written in an interesting, nontechnical manner with the aid of cartoons to illustrate principles and theories of allergy.
It presents a very short history of medicine and a more detailed history of allergy and immunity. It deals with the many manifestations of allergy and much space is given to amusing and troublesome problems encountered. Mention is made of the great variety of allergens and some of the difficulties involved in their detection. Due consideration is given to emotional influences and conditioned reflexes in the initiation of symptoms in allergic disorders.
The general principles of treatment are given.
