Please don't buy this book thinking you are buying that book, as I mistakenly did. Buyer beware indeed. You can find that excellent work here: https://www.amazon.com/Where-There-No-Doctor-Handbook/dp/0942364155/
Buy it instead IMO.
There are some lists to assist in building first aid kits, suggestions for available free resources such as on-line downloads like the Coast Guard "Standards of Training Certification and Watch Keeping for Seamen" and the ICRC (International Committee of the Red Cross) "Water, Sanitation, Hygiene and Habitat in Prisons".
These resources are good for when medical help is not readily available. The one about prisons typically refers to third world prisons and contains many useful things that can be utilized locally if systems and infrastructures fail.
This book made me aware that I can not cover all possibilities and that I do not have all of the skill sets to be all things in the face of disaster. Therefore I have picked a couple of areas that I will focus on and be prepared for.
I will specialize in PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) and basic first aid. So this book indeed was a good one for me because it helped me to see that I may have to rely on others such as family members, neighbors or my community to fill in those medical skills that I do not have, especially for a long term event.
Not wanting to rely on neighbors or community, my choice is to look at immediate family members, if we each acquire separate items and skill sets I feel we will be fairly well prepared.
I like the book and I like the balanced approach.
