Editorial Reviews

Review

"A comprehensive guide to basically anything that could go wrong, or needs to medically managed whilst in out and about. It packs a lot of information into a digestible handbook. It is aimed at an above average, medically minded, lay adventurer and as a result is written in plain language."

Reviewed by: Dr Stevan R Bruijns, Senior Lecturer in Emergency Medicine at University of Cape Town  Date: July 2015

"This is an essential resource to have on a wilderness adventure as it provides people with minimal formal medical education recommendations for caring for fellow travelers with medical emergencies. It packs a significant amount of information into a book that is small enough to take into the wilderness…" -Maria Kristine Goertz, M.D. (Regions Hospital and Level 1 Trauma Center)

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly valuable resource and well structured survival book!
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on June 23, 2016
The book was a gift for my boyfriend for Christmas, and he absolutely loves it. It was excellently wrapped and in perfect condition when we received it. It's very interesting to flip through, and makes a valuable addition to our bookcase/go bags. We hike all over the Northwest, and we always bring this book with us. The book consists of five parts- general information, major medical problems, Minor medical problems, disorders related to specific environments, and miscellaneous information. The book is very well written and structured. Some of the more detailed aspects of the book include allergic reactions, emergency childbirth, amputation crisis, head injuries, infectious diseases, respiratory and inner organ disorders, tornado, hurricane, flood and other natural disaster emergencies, hazardous aquatic life, wild plants & animals, water purification and much much more. It also has tons of diagrams and examples for clarification for some of use who are more visual learners. The book is small enough to easily be put into any SHTF backpack. It measures right under an inch as you can see in the photos. This is definitely an essential source for survival and staying healthy in the outdoors; wherever your travels will take you this book has something you can benefit from! You won't regret it!
