“One Minute Asthma: What You Need to Know has much to offer both adult and pediatric patients as well as their families. I also recommend it as a valuable information and teaching resource for physicians who care for patients with asthma."

Journal of the American Osteopathic Association, April 2006
Vol. 166 • No 4 • Page 192

"Intended to complement the basic education provided by physicians, it provides patients quick access to the essence of the most important aspects of asthma care. It spans the scope of asthma care: the basics, asthma medications, home monitoring and treatment plan, devices important to people with asthma, and additional resources about asthma. Each topic is covered on one page and each page requires about one minute to read, hence the title."

Annals of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, February 2001
Vol. 86 • Page 244
