Oh yeah you will notice that medical textbooks are a bit more pricey than are consumer health books (the difference between the paperback food intolernace/allergy book for patients and the hardcover new book for doctors is more thn content...the cost of the content is higher as well since the complexity of compiling the information from the various contributors, editing, production quality, potential market saize and of course buying power of the market all come into play).I would sugest watching every day or so for a sued one to turn up and order it right away...they will go fast...I have to bite the bullet and pay full pop as the first 2 used ones that came online went so fast they disappeared while I was enetering my orders for them!You almsot have to forgo a family vacation to afford a medical textbook like this!MNL
