Keeping Your Family Safe

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read book for safety, December 17, 2009 - Michelle L. Mcdonough

This book is excellent... it really helped me in deciding how to properly store the guns in our house...and talks about the advantages and disadvantages of keeping it loaded for self defense. It provides a lot of information that I can use now, and also teaches my children. The chapter on emergency first aid is awesome...gives a detailed list of exactly what modern combat gauze dressings and tourniquets to buy, and where to buy them. I also learned a cool fact...what is the number one sign that you are about to attacked by a criminal?"

"Definitely buy this book..the authors are experienced and know what they are talking about. One author is a triple trained expert...a emergency physician, soldier, and law enforcement officer...who has been involved in over 110 SWAT callouts. And he is qualified EXPERT in all the major gun types. I'm very happy I bought this...very useful."

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book!!!, December 16, 2009 - J. Krajecki

"This is one of the best books I've read about self defense and personal safety. The book covers a 9-step process that teaches about firearms, how and where to get the proper firearm training, and what the key parts of that training consists of to become a good shot. Most importantly it taught me the basics of gun safety and self-defense."


Tactical Medicine Essentials

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Textbook!!!, November 20, 2010 - Elizabeth S. Hoffmann

"I was charged w/ reworking all aspects of our EMS Training Classes w/n the corporation I work for. A huge job, I have to tell you! I have been looking for a clear, well written textbook to use for teaching first aid in many different situations, this has been what I was looking for. I assumed I would end up with many textbooks which my instructors would dislike, but this has covered all bases. Even situations we may encounter in areas with unstable gov't situations. AMAZING to find everything in one book."

5.0 out of 5 stars Tactical Medicine Essentials, October 25, 2010 - dee "d mustang"

"A must have for all first responders! Easy to read and very informative. As a police officer, I have desired to have the knowledge on how to respond to any tactical emergency that might occur. I believe with the knowledge written in this book any LEO would be working toward being prepared to respond to any emergency."


Emergency Medicine NMS Series

Very good book!, February 24, 2009 - Zippy

"I like the books in the NMS clinical series; I used all of them as a reference while reviewing for Step 2. Of course, they are not review book for USMLE but if you used them during your clerkship they are extremely useful to have handy. Psychiatric emergencies chapter has some lacunae; hopefully they will be corrected in the next edition."
