The common cold. There’s few among us who haven’t been afflicted with one at some time. But how does one catch a cold? Why do some catch colds more often then others? In Ah-Choo by Jennifer Ackerman, many of these topics will be covered.

The book covers things such as ancient cures for the common cold, the different studies that have gone into the cold, ways to treat the cold, and the different viruses that cause it.

One of the things that I’d never considered is that the cold is caused by a virus, therefore the antibacterial soaps that are so frequently used anymore, are useless in fending off the cold. Also there are many, many different cold viruses.

The book managed to present all of it’s information in an interesting and informative way. It was organized by topic, and Ms. Ackerman really seemed to do her research.

Hard to say who this book would be aimed at, so I’ll just say anyone interested in these types of subjects, should pick it up. I think you’d find it very informative.
