Learning to Breathe: One Woman’s Heroic Journey to Save Her Child’s Life, and Yours
By Sue Fries with Todd Aaron Jensen (Xulon Press, $15)

Shaken by the near death of her 4-year-old son, Tyson, when he suffered his first asthma attack, author Sue Fries journeys into understanding the breathing condition that affects tens of millions of Americans annually. Her research on asthma has yielded little-known causes and cures as well as tips for staying healthy. Also known as the Termite Lady, Fries is the Southern California–based owner of Ecola Services, an organic termite- and pest-control business, and is also a former director and chairwoman of the Pest Control Operators of California. She has a passion for educating the public on how to eliminate life-threatening allergens.
