This short manual is written by Dr Houston a prominent Altitude physician and is very readable for those with no background in medicine or altitude. It describes the history of the understanding of altitude illness, its basic physiology and its prevention and treatment.

This is a nice concise read so that this information can be easily assimilated by travelers and they would get the basic messages on prevention and awareness.

This is another must reads for those going to altitude either recreationally or with a fully equipped expedition.
