What the readers say: “I started out looking up topics in this handy book by Lisa Chavis, and found myself reading page after page. Not only are there ideas and recommendations for the most common (and most aggravating) everyday health problems in here, but there is a refreshingly cheerful look at pharmacists, doctors and consumers as well. The authors never talks down to the reader and seems to anticipate the questions that come up in the reading. The Humor Pills are delightful additions to rather than distractions from the content. I learned some things and had a good time doing it!”
