It’s not surprising that a list of hives book names may include over 500 titles. With 20 percent or better of the population suffering from hives, there have been plenty of books written on the topic. If you were to decide to spend your money, what is it that you want to learn from the hives book?
The expensive hives book option
Unless you are a physician or a dermatology student, chances are you don’t need to spend close to $200 on a textbook covering the urticaria condition. But they do exist and they will set you back a good bit of money. One hives book of this type sells for about $295 titled Urticaria and Angioedema. It is a hardcover hives book edited by Allen Kaplan and Malcom W. Graves. Published in hardcover and in its second edition, there is over 400 pages of information and is probably the most comprehensive book on the subject. This is way more than the average hives sufferer needs to learn or could even get through. But if you want a hives book that covers urticaria from every angle and aspect, this is a book for you. While not meaning to diminish the value of the information contained in this hives book, it’s doubtful you would ever get through it.
The cheap hives book option
While not necessarily a hives book, there is certainly lots of free nformation, some of it in PDF book form that you can get for free. Some of this information is very good and much of it thorough. But the problem with the free information is that it tends to be very general and repetitive. A free hives book online is probably worth what you pay for it. You’ll get the basics, but not much more. If you are looking for specific treatment recommendations or diagnosis, it’s doubtful that a free hives book will provide that.
A reasonably priced e-book is probably best choice
With the proliferation of information on the internet, your best alternative is probably a well-written and researched e-book. Hives books that address the area of hives you want to focus on can be found at reasonable prices.
A hives book that provides treatment methods not commonly found are well worth the modest price and will be able to give you ways to end the suffering. A hives book that outlines a treatment plan that will rid you of the problem is money well-spent. There are a few good ones out there written by doctors that have actually treated hives patients with success and are willing to share their work with you for a reasonable price.
A hives book offering a treatment that works is better than an office visit to confirm you have hives and then sends you home with an antihistamine. The price of the book should be about the same or less than an office visit but is worth it because you will have reference information to read again if needed and rid you of your suffering. Do a little research and look for a hives book that offers you something that works other than the same information you can easily find with a simple internet search.
