The book is divided into ten parts, with topics ranging from nutrition to organ donation. Each chapter is self-contained and easy to read, usually opening with a personalized story, followed by medical information, then a discussion from the Jewish perspective. Written by an eclectic collection of contributors, the book is equal parts medical information, halacha, and practical advice.
A note of caution: this book will not necessarily help the parent who has a child with a fever in the middle of the night. However, if the reader is interested in the Jewish response to stem cells or what the Lubavitcher Rebbe had to say about health and healing, this book will fit the bill.
