I'm a doc and find this book very useful and also good for teaching on international trips to 3rd world countries. It has a good disease and drug index with excellent dosing and treatment guidelines. Also great info to help with a differential diagnosis. In most of these countries there is a tendency to over treat using poly-pharmacy, but this book advocates only necessary treatment. I take it every time I travel!

Anyone that has a self-reliance or emergency library must have this book. The information is well presented and easy to understand. All of the recent weather events have shown how quickly our medical system can be overwelmed. I see why everyone recommends this book.

Of all the medical related books in my collection this one stands out from the rest. Plain old easy to understand advice using patient symptoms with available medicines and dosages. If it works in the third world countries it will work here in a shtf scenario.

This book is a winner and should be taken to any remote location.

I used this book in Bolivia in 1979-81 and again in 1989-1993. It was a wonderful resource, especially for tropical diseases and just for reference. I just purchased it again to send with my nurse daughter-in-law in Uganda. An excellent resource when you can't count on the internet for help!

A lot of common sense knowledge but there is some very good information, especially when it comes to infants and natural remedies. No major fixes but very good for general health and well being.

As a volunteer healthcare educator in developing countries, this gives some basic direction in the field, and ideas of how to pass on knowledge to those who are interested in taking responsibility for the health of their community when volunteers have left the scene.

A great resource for the book I'm writing. Conditions in the book are even more primitive than the ones involved in these instructions.
