3.0 out of 5 stars reads like a text book.... December 15, 2013
Verified Purchase
Which is what it is, a text book. Without the class it has a difficult time standing alone. It is good for gleaning information if you are already a medic. It is not for someone trying to learn from the beginning how to treat the injured/sick.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful June 17, 2014
By Dar-Man

I found this book useful, practical and logical. There is a lot of useful information in here that you or a small team can apply. The details of wilderness life can not be learned from a book, one must spend many hours outdoors learning the little things.

1.0 out of 5 stars No links in contents March 6, 2009

This book is almost a great deal. However the contents do not have links, this means having to guess where the chapters are... Could of been 4 stars with a little effort
