Can anybody recommend a good book about altitude sickness?
I'd appreciate any recommendations.

Thanks,

I have "High Altitude Medicine and Physiology (3rd Edition, December 2000)
James S Milledge, John B West and Michael P Ward"

This is a textbook probably aimed at physicians, but goes into various aspects of altitude related physiology and illness.

It doesn't deal solely with altitude sickness however and a lot of people might get bogged down with it depending on their level of medical expertise
