Excellent information and easily understood January 12, 2011
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
Anyone who does any backpacking, remote travel, or other wilderness activities will find this book very useful.
The advice is excellent and the improvised techniques are important in wilderness situations when equipment is very limited.

The size is small enough to fit in a first aid kit, backpack, etc.

The book is well worth the cost and could the most valuable item in your first aid kit.

It is also a recommended book for several local hiking groups.

EXCELLENT ! The book has paid for itself! January 12, 2011
Reviewer: D WHITE from Essexville Michigan  
I am a field medic with the Michigan Army National Guard. I was so impressed with this book that I took it in to the armory, passed it around, and got seven of my fellow medics interested enough to buy the book. I keep a copy of the book in my medical bag for both reference and training purposes. When I am out in the field with the grunts (ifantry troops )I try to give a class or two on first aid. Some day I might be the patient. The book is easily worth three times its retail price.
