  2. Chronic Lung Disease Booklet 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on Jul 10th 2019)

    This very practical booklet covers all that a lung disease sufferer needs to know to deal with the problems. It is factual, easy to read and understand, and provides great insight into dealing with the various problems associated with lung disease. It is very well worth the $4.40 (but had to laugh when shipping was nearly twice as much at $7.88).
