Jennifer Ackerman explains what a cold is, how it works, and sifts through all the treatments—what works, what doesn't, and what can't hurt. In Ah-choo! The Uncommon Life of Your Common Cold, she looks at what scientists have learned over the past decade about cold viruses, what they do to the human body, and how symptoms can be addressed, and looks at current research, in the hopes of finding a cure for the common cold.
