HASH(0xa869290c) out of 5 stars Not exactly what I expected. April 20 2013

I was thinking this book would be great to take with me tracking or camping, but honestly I wouldn't waste the backpack space. It is extremely superficial, not much better than introductory first aid. If you have NO experience with first aid or medical experience it would help to a degree. I mean honestly, how to tell if an elbow is out of place is to see if the elbow is pointing the wrong way and hurts. Well DUH! I think an elbow pointing backwards is a good indication of injury.... Being a licensed First Responder and a trained EMT may make me a little critical on the subject but maybe it would work for newbies and beginners.
