This book is laid out to allow the reader to easily find various topics and specific subject material in a very expedient manner. The first section after the "Introduction" discusses medical equipment and supplies for long-term storage and also for hiking or bug-out-bags. Other sections have in-depth descriptions of many medical conditions that one can expect to encounter at home or "out in the sticks". Additionally, The Survival Doctor frequently covers various options to deal with the specific problem at hand, to include the "pros" and "cons" of taking or not taking specific actions to solve the problem. Not only does he provide options, he frequently provides his educated opinion as to the probable outcome of using various options so that the reader can make a better-educated determination of which course of action to choose.
Frankly, I find this to be a very sophisticated and informative book, written in everyday layman terms, for medical emergencies that one could expect to encounter away from medical facilities. It measures about 5" x 7" x 1/2" and can easily fit into a cargo pocket or many 1st Aid kits. I highly recommend this book for novices and the experienced. I will probably purchase more so as to have one in each of my medical bags, kits, packs, and vehicles. It is certainly a book that others should consider buying..
Now that i had a chance to sit down and actually read the book, I believe this is a wonderful tool to have nearby or in your first aid kit. It covers many many topics. Along with the "typical" first aid measures, it also gives you alternative ideas in case you don't have the other stuff on hand. The book also shows pictures for many things, which I personally find very helpful.
I sat down to glance through the book and ended up reading the whole thing before I got back up.
It's also somewhat poorly organized in my opinion, but I guess it's hard to organize something like this.
