THE AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION GUIDE TO YOUR FAMILY'S SYMPTOMS edited by Dr. Charles B. Clayman & Dr. Raymond H. Curry (Random House: $15; 320 pp., illustrated). A series of 145 easy-to-follow charts with yes/no choices ("Is your temperature above 102 degrees?" "Have you been drinking alcoholic beverages?") enables readers to figure out what ails them. Guides to common medications, first aid and the special problems of children and male and female adults supplement the text. This useful addition to a household reference library is designed to help people decide whether to go to the medicine chest, visit the doctor or summon an ambulance.
