Recommends it for: parents of kids with food allergies; anyone who suddenly gets a severe allergy
I went into the book with certain goals: (1) learn alternative names for products, (2) learn what I have to do to keep kissing safe for my boyfriend, (3) learn if and how I could cook dinner for him in my kitchen, where my roommates would never give up his allergens.

This book is really aimed for parents of children with food allergies. It does have some helpful information for adults (e.g. the semi-good description of learning how to eat out - really hard) but it is not very easy to navigate if

The book contains as well some great recipes. It had a section about preschool and school which was really helpful to me as ...more

This book is useful to the person beginning their quest for information on food allergies. I don't recommend the Nook version, as you can't read or print out cheat sheets and other valuable figures from the book. As an adult that just discovered she has food allergies I was dismayed by the huge amount of pages dedicated to children with food allergies, such as what to do at school, cafeteria, camps, etc. I'd say about 60% of the book was useful.

Best food allergy book I've read so far. It makes it all less scary, seemingly manageable, and simultaneously motivating since the author has severe allergies himself. ....He has great anecdotes!
