Low Price Guarantee
We Take School POs
All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2001 March)
Gr 7 Up-Greenberg's medically based and detailed text takes readers on a thorough tour of the disease from its history and causes to current and potential treatments. By utilizing concrete metaphors for abstract cellular occurrences in the immune system (barricades, moats, guard dogs, army, etc.) and bold type for words located in the glossary, the author attempts to make the enormously complex system accessible to young people. Despite her effort, however, the chapters dealing with causes and physical manifestations will be a tough read for younger (and scientifically uninclined) students, though excellent for reports. Sections on management and treatments are far more useful, and the list of organizations and Web sites will be helpful. Black-and-white photos and graphics provide welcome text breaks and occasional insight. Carolyn Simpson's Coping with Asthma (Rosen, 1995) and Alvin Silverstein's Asthma (Enslow, 1997) are more accessible and easier to comprehend.-Mary R.
