"The Survival Doctor's Guide to Wounds"by James Hubbard, M.D., M.P.H.

Kicking off National Preparedness Month, I asked some of my Facebook fans to recommend fiction and nonfiction books they like. I plan on making a permanent page for emergency-preparedness on the blog.

Here’s the list so far. I’ve added a few of my own. On the permanent page, I’ll be including the fans’ comments about the books. So please share what you think about these, or recommend other emergency-preparedness books and tell why you like them.

I’ll add your recommendations and comments to the permanent page, along with your name unless you tell me otherwise. The page will also link to the books. If you have a website, I’ll add that link as well.

Note: The permanent page has been created.
It’s evolving, so please keep adding your suggestions and reviews to this post.
