    Best First Aid Manual

    I am a licensed first responder and am often asked to recommend a first aid manual. This is the best one I have found so far. It is easy to understand and follow the instructions, the photograhps are very good and it is up to date with the current cpr rules. I am very pleased with this book and have shared it with fellow first aid workers every chance I have had as well as with friends and family who just want a basic first aid book for their homes. The price is good and it came very quickly to the local Barnes and Noble where I ordered it.
