This new book from the editors of Outdoor Life is really neat. As someone who likes to be prepared and the daughter of an Eagle Scout, it's a great little handbook of some of the most common disasters. I really liked the first couple of articles about BOBs ("bug-out" bag). They include a list of what you should have in your emergency bag. Then the book proceeds to go through a little bit of first aid, and here's where I have my one qualm. Obviously some situations are so bad that medical attention is required, for things like fourth degree burns, but the book could explicate a little more into how to deal with these injuries if medical attention is not available. The book also misses out with arterial bleeding here. And although we may never have to deal with such things, the knowledge may come in handy some day. Otherwise, the book is really informative with great diagrams. The rest of the book goes through common natural disasters and also some useful things to know, like how to siphon fuel if need be. And it is a nice size to store with your BOB bag for reference!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
