Yes his name is Flash Gordon and he is a medical doctor with some very interesting experiences and credentials. He is also a motorcyclist who rides a fine BMW motorcycle. Doc Flash, like many of us motorcyclists, will use any excuse for a ride and I count him among my favorite riders to look for at rallies and ride-ins. His book is a collection of articles that he wrote for a California based cycle periodical. They are pithy, humorous and are very useful. After reading the chapter concerning what one should carry in their first aid kit, I immediately checked out my kit and realized I wasn't really ready to take care of anything more that a scratch. I have already checked out my local pharmacy for the gauze, ointment and tape I should be carrying. The section concerning what should and should not be done at an accident site is must reading for everyone, not just motorcyclists. This chapter alone is worth the price of the book. As Doc Flash points out those first few minutes at an accident scene can make all the difference in the world. I'm sure my riding friends appreciate the fact that I am better informed and will be able to do the right thing should the occasion arise. Doc Flash has quite a sense of humor and it shows in his writing. Don't be surprised or offended at the language he uses at times. Just his way of making a point. And he does make quite a few points in his articles. The book is easy to read and can be finished in one evening. My wife asked me what I was laughing about several times and when I read her several sections she laughed as well. We both enjoyed the book. I highly recommend all motorcyclists get Doc Flash's book. Entertaining and useful reading.

Not a medical journal, but still fun Sept. 24 2009
By J. L. Greer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Flash is a funny guy, in his own dry humor kind of way. However, if you bought this thinking you would get some medical info, you will be disappointed. The book is barely funny enough, but really short on info. The part on poison oak really wasn't funny as maybe he though it would be either(its not that I was offended, it just wasn't that funny). As a motorcycle instructor and mentorship group ride facilitator I expected a bit more substance.
Let's be safe out there.
