"As the subtitle of Sicherer’s book bluntly observes, these allergies can be fatal. That’s why this allencompassing and timely revision of his already praised book is so important for everyone who takes care of those with food allergies—from physicians, nurses, teachers and spouses to adults with food allergies and parents with children who are allergic to certain foods."

"An indispensable book for anyone who has food allergies or any parent of a child with food allergies. As an allergist treating food-allergic patients every day, I keep this book within easy reach, on my bookshelf. It’s a unique source of knowledge for those of us who treat such patients."

"A must-read for teens and adults with food allergies, and for anyone living with or caring for someone with food allergies. Here they will find answers to many of their questions as well as interesting case histories and essential principles of diagnosis and treatment, including a realistic overview of future approaches."

"Dr. Sicherer draws on his years of experience as a master clinician, researcher, author, and thought leader in this field to provide practical advice and countless insights that are sure to provide the reader with the knowledge needed to understand and manage food allergies. The question-and-answer format makes this comprehensive book highly accessible to people with food allergies and parents of children with food allergies, while the extensive insights and depth of detail make it an important resource for health care providers as well. Dr. Sicherer describes in detail how to integrate food allergies into a family lifestyle. A family’s ability to anticipate a food reaction and then treat the symptoms if they happen—and not expect a reaction to happen all the time—helps a family cope thoughtfully with food allergies in a child."

As a parent of children with life-threatening food allergies, these are my essential reference books."
