What I liked most about Dr. Bassett's book was how he organized the layout: it's broken down into three parts with a total of ten chapters.
Chapter 1 covers the mechanics of allergies and chapter 2 begins to define and describe diagnosing allergies. Chapter 3 discusses prevention, and chapters 4-9 cover specific types of allergies.
You can start the book from the beginning and read all the way through, or simply go to the section that's right for you. It's perfect for researching just a few topics and isn't too difficult (or boring) to read.
Plus, a neat fact to know: Dr. Bassett is also a practicing physician in New York (click here), so if you're ever in the area, stop by and say hi! Even though they'll look at you like you're crazy, I bet it would still be fun to get a reaction out of 'em. (Get it, a "reaction"?)
