Feingold has produced a well-organized, informative, and attractively published introduction for the "... physician who does not limit his practice to the problems of allergy." He has succeeded admirably in uniting many matter-of-fact, yet singularly neglected, aspects of allergic disease.

In 19 chapters, four of which were contributed by other authors, the book covers in reasonable scope the immunology of allergy; allergic diseases of the upper and lower respiratory tracts, the gastrointestinal tract, the eye, and the skin; insect allergy; drugs used in the treatment of allergic disease; autoallergic disease; immune deficiency states; and adverse reactions to foods, food chemicals, and drugs. There also are excellent chapters on the botany of allergy, immunotherapy, allergy in infancy, psychological factors in allergic disease, and allergic headache. Throughout, Feingold underscores the importance of differentiating the signs and symptoms of allergy from those of certain nonimmunologic conditions that mimic allergy, eg, adverse reactions to foods
