It is rare to find medical doctors in Boston who do not share the political bias against guns which is so prevalent in the Northeast. The authors of "Keeping Your Family Safe" are the outstanding exception. While at only 132 pages the book is concise, in its 11 chapters it covers the subject of firearm ownership in all aspects: practical, factual, political and life saving first aid. Chapter 7: Firearms Training includes contact information for the top firearms training schools in the country, run by professionals, offering courses for beginners as well as experts. Doctors Wheeler and Wipfler have done their homework extremely well: Chapter 11: Learning Safety for Life is dedicated to suggestions for further reading for those who want to know more on this important and often emotionally loaded subject. If the question comes up, "Should I buy this book?" the correct answer is "Yes, absolutely." Two further books, not currently listed but important are 1) Street Smarts, Firearms and Personal Security by Grover, and 2) Strong on Defense by Sanford Strong. This last book is currently out of print but well worth the effort needed to find a used copy.
