This is THE book for someone who has food allergies or is a friend or caregiver to someone with them. I read a bunch last year after my son was diagnosed with peanut allergy and this one is the best by far. Dr. Wood has a lifelong anaphylactic allergy so he is both professionally and personally very articulate about living with food allergies. Filled with understandable information, anecdotes and tips for living, this book helped me find the right balance between crazy fear, appropriate precautions and acceptance.read more
