This is such a great book for anyone who has been diagnosed with or has a family member with COPD. Very easy to understand, the author offers up enough excellent information and presents it in a way that someone who comes in with little or a lot of understanding will feel it was written just for them.
Includes a description of what exactly COPD is (including asthma, bronchitis and emphysema), as well as the relevant details that you need to understand in order to properly manage this condition. Make sure to photocopy the tracking charts in the back as the author has done a very comprehensive job in putting everything you need into this book.
