I think it should be required reading in middle school. If they are making common core sex ed a requirement, then apparently kids can handle the gory details that this book offers. Life is messy. Learn how to clean it up. Also, people who do illegal things don't get medical help and people die, case in point Noir Desire singer beats Marie Trintignant and because they were on drugs she died. Drug culture people need this book to be as helpful as they can be in an altered state. Ok, I know that is the weirdest review ever but I stand by it.

The Title says it all...
Far too often we view Health care training with the immediate needs of traumatic injury at the forefront. While we can argue that this is in fact the most likely scenario for a first responder, we overlook the need to instruct people how to spot conditions of a less immediate, but still threatening nature. "Where There Is No Doctor" is an excellent grounding in disease prevention and treatment. The techniques and clues our Great Grandparents learned the hard way are in here, how to cope with illness in less than optimal conditions. This is an education worth far more than it costs, and from what I have seen over the years, it is a lifesavers best chance for early intervention in the disease process.
