You asked for it, and it’s finally here!
Drum roll, please. I have some very exciting news. …
Ever since I self-published my e-book guides to Burns and Wounds, people have asked when was I going to publish a book they could hold in their hands—one they could take anywhere or have on hand if the Internet went down.
It took a while, but here it is.
First, let me explain the title. Living Ready is the name of the publisher, who specializes in prepper-type material, including a website; books; and a magazine, for which I write a column.
And First Aid? Well, the book includes that, but it goes beyond. Yes, it gives information on what to do for common emergencies right away to save a life, but it also provides information on what to do if expert help is going to be delayed for hours, days, or longer—maybe never. Now, as I’ve written before, there’s only so much you can do in the middle of nowhere with no expert help or tools, but I provide you with some tips I know, what medical equipment I deem the most essential to try to have on hand, and make-do substitutes for equipment not available.
More thoughts on the book:
- Price ($12.99). I think the book is doggone cheap for the material included. Of course, I would :-) . But, truly, I was surprised when I saw the price the publisher set. And then there’s a discount on top of that. Right now, you can get it for just $9.61.
- Uniqueness. There are many first-aid books, but it’s rare to find one this compact that goes beyond first aid and provides you with practical information on what to do for the most common medical problems you might face and how to manage them if expert medical help is delayed or not on the way.
- Size. The book is small enough to fit easily into any backpack or bug-out bag. Or, of course, on the shelf.
I urge you to have the book on hand as soon as possible. If you wait until you need it, you’ve waited too late. Consider some for your home, each of your packs, your kids, and gifts. The book is a great holiday gift for preppers, homesteaders, hikers, campers, or anyone who’d like an easy-to-read, how-to reference guide for common medical problems. Living Ready Pocket Manual: First Aid is available for preorder now. When you place your order, you’ll receive it close to its publication date, December 31.
I don’t think you’re going to find this amount of material at a better price.
