      Comments about F.A. Davis Company Publishing First Aid, Survival and CPR - Waterproof, Reusable, Home And Field Pocket Guide:

      This book is small, but still has legible decent sized print and the material it's printed on is very durable. The content is thorough, up-to-date and even sprinkles some humor and "Did you know" sections that clear up common misconceptions and urban legends regarding CPR and survival. If I could include one book in my emergency medical kit, this would be it. As a matter of fact, this book IS in my kit, right on top. Loads of information in a compact package.

        I got this a quick reference guide for a trip to Central America. Looking through the guide it had everything I might need.

          Comments about F.A. Davis Company Publishing First Aid, Survival and CPR - Waterproof, Reusable, Home And Field Pocket Guide:

          No home should be without this excellent resource! It has been very well-written and is easy for the average adult or even older child to understand, especially with the inclusion of many illustrations and photos. The book contains excellent information for a variety of situations, and it is very obvious that the author put a lot of thought and work into creating it.

          The book is a lot smaller than I imagined, which is actually perfect (and preferred) as it can be tucked into a drawer, glove box, or first aid kit. It is waterproof, which is an added bonus, so feel free to take it camping or boating. I appreciate how organized the topics are - info can be very quickly found via the handy tabs at the bottom.

          I found out that the author is a contributing expert on first aid, safety, and preparedness for www.Sharecare.com the online medical information platform created by WebMD founder, Jeff Arnold, and TV personality, Dr. Mehmet Oz. So I guess she is in good company and the book seems really accurate.

            Comments about F.A. Davis Company Publishing First Aid, Survival and CPR - Waterproof, Reusable, Home And Field Pocket Guide:

            I just got my book and I LOVE it! It is packed full of information on just about every kind of emergency you could encounter. I especially like the fact that the author included tips for pets as I have 3 pets that are always with us.

            The illustrations are great and the charts are an added plus. The size is perfect for stowing away in small places and it is waterproof so you can take it on the boat or in wet weather.

            The tabs on the bottom make it easy to flip to the section you need. This is a great First Aid/Survival book and would make a wonderful gift. I would highly recommend this little book. No family should be without it.

              Comments about F.A. Davis Company Publishing First Aid, Survival and CPR - Waterproof, Reusable, Home And Field Pocket Guide:

              After reading this handy reference it taught me how to put together a first aid kit that I now have stocked and ready to use (I have been putting off doing this....so now I feel better prepared). I am working on putting together a disaster kit that the book recommends for my family and pets since we have heavy flooding in my area. There is even a large section on how to prepare and deal with natural disasters; flooding and tornados are frequent in my town.

              My son loves the section on dog and cat CPR....seems like everything is packed in this little book. My husband likes the survival stuff since we like to camp and hike. I thought the section on emergency childbirth was a plus. I remember reading an article where a husband who could not get his wife to the hospital in time delivered their son watching a YouTube video. I am buying more books since I want my babysitter to have one on hand and I put one in my son's backpack and in my car. This summer we'll put one on our boat. The book is easy to read and I like the illustrations. I just took a CPR course and this book will be a good reference if I ever need to use my CPR skills.
