Editorial Reviews

Review

"...High Angle Rescue is unquestionably the best Rope Rescue reference available today. The content is US orientated and can therefore be slightly at odds with countries elsewhere but the authors have referenced just about every difference even if they haven't covered it in detail so there's no excuse for confusion. We can't recommend this book enough - If your agency will only purchase one rope rescue book make sure it's this one!" - TECHNICAL RESCUE, Issue 43.

This is a great guide if you are involved in rope rescue operations. I use it regularly, and it is on my list of recommended reading for anybody in the field. Should be in every special rescue vehicle.

With a well laid out design, and many useful pictographs of knots, harnesses and haul systems, this book serves as a quality textbook for a Technical Rescue course.

This book is the best rope rescue book that I have seen yet. Even though it cost quite a bit it is well worth the money.

If you're into Roping and Vertical Rescue you need this in your library.

Some knowledge is needed to really get safe and useful information out of it but it is a must have. No one should teach them selves roping from a book but using texts to upgrade and refresh ideas and skills once a skill level is established is good. This is the one of the texts to use.
