Published Reviews

"A comprehensive guide to basically anything that could go wrong, or needs to medically managed whilst in out and about. It packs a lot of information into a digestible handbook. It is aimed at an above average, medically minded, lay adventurer and as a result is written in plain language."

Reviewed by: Dr Stevan R Bruijns, Senior Lecturer in Emergency Medicine at University of Cape Town  Date: July 2015

"This is an essential resource to have on a wilderness adventure as it provides people with minimal formal medical education recommendations for caring for fellow travelers with medical emergencies. It packs a significant amount of information into a book that is small enough to take into the wilderness." -Maria Kristine Goertz, M.D. (Regions Hospital and Level 1 Trauma Center)
