I just finished a very good book called The Complete Peanut Allergy Handbook by Dr. Scott Sicherer. My allergist actually recommended it to our entire support group.

It's written for those with a peanut allergy, but frankly, anyone with a severe food allergy will benefit. It gives a lot of good information about allergies in very understandable language.

Chapters has it ( http://tinyurl.com/eb4qa ), and Anaphylaxis Canada does too ( http://www.anaphylaxis.ca/content/livin ... alogue.asp ). It's a good investment, I think.

My understanding is that Dr. Sicherer himself has a peanut allergy.

Karen, I was looking at the book you're recommending, but I already have The Peanut Allergy Answer Book by Michael C. Young, M.D. (purchased when my son was first diagnosed) http://images.amazon.com/images/P/19314 ... ZZZZZZ.jpg
Have you read it as well?
I wondered if there would be too much overlap with the info. in the two books -- what do you think? (that is, if you've read both...)

I haven't, yet. I sort of went through a phase where I couldn't stand to read any more allergy books, and just kept putting it off. (But I'm better now. LOL.)

I will try to get my hands on it and see how it compares. It's part of our support group library so maybe I can grab it from there. I know that Dr. Young is quite respected as well.
