4.0 out of 5 stars The Best in Its Time, Superceded by Marine Medicine, March 29, 2015

Dated but exceptional.

I have been so unhappy with the “standard” references such as Advanced First Aid Afloat that that I created my own informal study guide for offshore use, one page per item, description/diagnostics, treatment, and photo.

Recently a new book has come on the market that I recommend without reservation, Marine Medicine (Adventure Medical Kits). This new book has the advantage of combining the expertise of one of America’s top sailor doctors, and one of America’s top wilderness doctors.

I continue to value this book, and have it integrated into my own informal guide, but if you want to buy one book to carry on your boat, the book I recommend is Marine Medicine (Adventure Medical Kits).
