I have asthma, and I have become fascinated with its historical treatment, as well as perceptions of it throughout the ages. This book is incredible because you get to see how one masterful physician and celebrated rabbi approached asthma during the Medieval period, treating it not only with "remedies" but also with sweeping lifestyle changes. I loved it so much I bought a second copy and gave it to my asthma doctor.
