Review from Amazon from a medical professional:

Outstanding book. There is a lot of information packed in this book and it is all very well written. Being a layperson I was a little concerned that the information given would be too advanced, but Dr. Alton and Nurse Amy did a wonderful job. I particularly liked the section that talked about antibiotics. I pray that I never need the information contained in this book, but if I do it could potentialy save a life.

I have enjoyed learning from this edition new things the first one didn't have. The book has even caught the attention of one of my sons.

This book should be on every Preppers book shelf
It has helped me realize as far as medical preparedness there is more that I need to acquire. Lucky most of this can also be purchased here.

This is an invaluable book to have in any emergency survival kit. Whether you're separated from the group in a wilderness scenario or there is some other economic or social disaster, this book can give you the know-how to take care of your body and others' injuries. I found that it was a very concise guide. It assumes you know nothing about medical care, which is great because I didn't. Now I have a lot more confidence to actually use my first aid kit the right way when the time comes.
