    Take the WFR course!! I feel like I got my money's worth big time.I got this book a few years ago, skimmed it and didn't take much away. Then took about half of a ski patrol OEC course, the classes were too spaced out for me. Took the NOLS WFR, where you spend a week and a half immersed in it and I finally feel I have the basics of ems.The course very loosely followed this book. Don't think just reading this is even close to a substitute. I started noticing on my backcountry trips I was always m [...]

    This is a good basic first aid book, but not as good as some others out there. Its weakness is that if any situation gets somewhat complex or dangerous, they recommend evacuating to definitive medical care.While that is good advice, it isn't always possible. Other books in the genre provide better advice about truly austere medical interventions that can be performed by the lay person if definitive medical care isn't available.

    This is a very comprehensive first aid manual for those instances when help is not a phone call away. I bought the Kindle version, thinking that it would be handy to have it in the back country (I've taken a Wilderness First Aid class, but it was a while ago, and I've never carried any of the texts with me). Certainly not a replacement for good training, but a very informative and clearly laid out book.

    Read for reference/research purposes rather than practical ones, but nonetheless I was very impressed and think I might be adding this one to my library. Covers topics clearly and with a level of detail that seemed just about right for the "educated civilian" reader.

    Learned a lot taking the WFR course. Definitely feel more prepared for outdoor adventures. Maybe now my mom won't freak out whenever I tell her I'm going somewhere by myself. Nah, probably not.
