  1. I don’t recommend this book. As with most books by survial author “Ragnar Benson” it is full of innaccuracies and half truths. There is some basic information on setting bones, stitching wounds, and other simple topics, but it is not very well addressed — It’s almost as if the author has no idea what he’s talking about and is simply repeating urban knowledge thirdhand. As far as his information of how to aquire the various supplies, there are far better, easier, and more legal ways than he describes here. The misinformation presented here is likely to get you in trouble. “DITCH MEDICINE” is a far better book.

  2. The author spends a lot of time telling you how to obtain drugs normally available only through doctors (and ranting about government control) while not spending a lot of time on the medical aspects that the title leads you to believe.

    I suppose that his suggestions about forging prescriptions shouldn’t be surprising when his other books tell readers how to gunrun for profit, acquire new id, build claymore mines, etc.

  3. Full of less than half information, just do your EMT Basic license at a local community college. Its a real qualification and you know that you met a standard. After all, people are not legos and in an emergency you want skills you can depend on…because thats exactly what you’ll be doing.

  4. A listing of the errors and inaccuracies in this book would fill a small paperback in itself. If a person hasn’t been trained in the basics of emergency medical science, some of the procedures advocated in this book could prove lethal to a patient if performed by an amateur.

    The book can best be characterized this way: even the author’s method for forging prescriptions is obsolete.

    If you’re looking for a felony conviction, this is your book. If you’re interested in sound do-it-yourself emergency healthcare procedures, try one of the books recommended by the other medical professionals who reviewed this one.

  5. “Do It Yourself Medicine” contains much information that you won’t get from your family doctor or the typical Medic. At the current time, many Veterinarian medications are available and being purchased and used by farmer/ranchers. Most mentioned are available without a Vet’s prescription from local sources or thru mail order Vet supply companies. (use google). I think you will find the cost of this do-it-yourself guide well worth the price you are paying for it. As a matter of policy, I have to advise, as Ragnar does, that the novice should only consider administering these treatments and medications when in dire and isolated circumstances when no better option exists for the patient. That being said, every family and wilderness travel group should have a trained and experienced Medic. This little book will prove to be very valuable to them.
