I could not be happier, it is outstanding! 1 Feb 2012
By TraceMyPreps - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy have written a first of it's kind, an incredible medical reference in the-previously non-existent-category of collapse medicine.

This book is as all-encompassing as I believe it can be. From respiratory infections to fractures to hypothermia to pregnancy and delivery, the chapters and the knowledge continue. There is even a detailed chapter on suturing; including when-and when not-to close a wound. If you can think of a medical problem that you may have to deal with in a collapse, there's information about it in this book and more.

Really a 3.5 star book 2 Feb 2012
By Baja James - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I just did the first read through on D&B and it is a good book. There is a great deal of information on herbal pharmacology and the effective use of antibiotics and wound treatment. Where it looses points is on the constant references to other books and youtube videos. I think this book could have been more stand alone given the obvious skill and knowledge of the authors. I would have liked to have seen more on long term care and the austere nature of techniques we would end up using in a post collapse situation. I also think the book could have done without the add for their trauma kit they sell. So while it is a wonderful supplement to whats out there it is not a one stop shop. so 3.5 stars

EXACTLY what I needed 18 Mar 2012
By Halloween Queen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The wealth of information in this book is astounding. Everything I can think of facing in a "no doctor/dentist" society is covered (short of MAJOR surgeries)- even minor surgical issues (i.e., how to suture). Anything which would require major surgery - well, I may be out of luck - I'm probably not going to be removing an appendix or doing a heart bypass, no matter how many books I read. But anything short of "major" I feel prepared for. Whereas there are references to other books and videos IF you want additional information, it certainly isn't necessary to consult those as well. I think the author references them for those who want to read/see more of the same. To me, this is a stand alone book and I'm going to order more as gifts. Without a doubt, the BEST disaster medical guide I've read.

Not a good choice for the price 10 Sep 2012
By Frank - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has some useful information howeever there is a lot of dead space in the book and a lot of useless information. A better book for a third of the price is Wilderness Medicine Beyond First Aid by Dr William Forgey which is sold on Amazon for $9.36 as of this writing. The most useful information contained in this book is the information on using fish antibiotics for humans but you can download this information from the authors website for free. So if you are looking for a more concise book that has a great deal more information on a multitude of medications and there uses buy Wilderness Medicine from Amazon and save yourself some money. I returned the book for a refund.

This book review has no bearing on Amazon. Amazon is a great place to shop and buy things and has great customer service.

Hard Topic 17 Aug 2012
By SWChance - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It must be hard to write on a topic like this to a layman like me who has no idea how to practice medicine. In some ways this book was helpful, as the chapter on suturing was, as horrifying as it would be to have to perform this on a wide awake patient. Which by the way the author did not touch on how to handle an awake patient in this situation or any type of general anesthesia help. There was also quite a bit on types of oils & herbs to use although there was no direction on mixing these as I suppose its up to the reader to buy a herbal medical book.

I was a little surprised on the chapter about hepatitis that it will eventually heal itself, I didn't know that and will have to check with my own doc. But the authors were honest in saying that someone who has a heart attack without access to a hospital probably won't survive, even with CPR.

I'd guess the hardest part about writing this type of book is that so many injuries & illnesses require medicine which most of us can't access. My doctor would certainly not write a prescription for meds I don't need for a "just in case" scenario, or triple my normal dosage just because I'm a prepper. He'd probably think I was nuts. What I learned is that without any type of medical training I wouldn't be much useful in a medical emergency beyond what experience I already have, but I'll toss this in my emergency bag anyway.
