    I am a retired military guy and combat veteran, familiar with many First Aid books, procedures, and styles. Back in my day in Viet Nam we called our green duct-tape-on-steroids “100-mile-an-hour tape” and used it for everything from repairing our canvas bags and tents to taping over bullet holes on our helicopter rotor blades.. In critical times, this type of tape was successfully used in many medical emergencies, to include covering sucking chest wounds to prevent lungs from further collapsing, or stabilizing fractures on the field of battle.

    DUCT TAPE 911 is a long overdue book, written by “The Survival Doctor”, a qualified medical doctor, who specializes in teaching others various medical procedures to better survive in remote areas away from medical facilities. I found this to be an excellent book, using a large font, that is very easy to read and understand.. It is a relatively short book of only about 100 printed pages, written in laymen’s terms, and liberally sprinkled with excellent hand-drawn pictures of the procedure being discussed.

    My only complaint regarding this book is that with the hand-drawn pictures it is sometimes difficult to see the specific points being discussed. This is primarily due to the fact that my old eyes have a real problem seeing all the very-lightly-drawn lines in the pictures. I would much prefer that the drawings be much more pronounced and easier to view in detail without straining my eyes to do so. Otherwise the drawings are quite good, and easy to understand.

    That one point aside, I highly recommend this book to anyone who has any use whatsoever for keeping a First Aid Kit, medical bag, or plans to venture into the great outdoors where medical help may be sparse. There are a number of outside-the-box “fixes” in this book that most folks will view and say to themselves, “Why didn’t I think of that..??”

    I found this to be a very informative book, written in easily understood terms, for medical emergencies that one could expect to encounter away from medical facilities. It measures about 6″ x 9″ x 3/8″ and can easily fit into many 1st Aid kits. I highly recommend this book for novices and the experienced. I will probably purchase more so as to have one in each of my medical bags, kits, packs, and vehicles. It is certainly a book that others should consider buying..
