I had seen a great survival guide book in the library- but when I went back it was gone - I checked many times . Dr. Acquista's book on Emergency Prep for bio, chem or nuke attack is through enough to be useful, however a lot of the material repeats itself.

I had seen a great survival guide book in the library- but when I went back it was gone - I checked many times and never found it again so I looked here. This was at least a similar theme and the same topic so I gave this a chance. The other book had frequent photos to assist and the information was presented in a cleaner, easier to locate format. Really wish that book would turn up again in the library so I could find it's title.

This book is a comprehensive guide to what to expect and how to react in over 30 scenarios, including anthrax, bubonic plague and smallpox (biological), cyanide and sarin (chemical) and dirty bombs and attacks on power stations (nuclear). It describes medical symptoms and treatments, and gives solid practical information about how to respond to specific emergencies, plus advice on such issues as disaster planning and mass-transportation strategies in the event of an attack.

Believing that information is empowering, Acquista addresses the chemical, biological, and nuclear threats facing America today, plus the basic steps we can take before and after a terrorist attack. Absolutely Essential - and Fascinating. com User, April 8, 2003. I can't tell you how much better I feel having this book in my house. I hope I won't ever need it for emergency purposes, but I've appreciated looking up certain chemicals and biological agents that I hear about in Iraq. This is fascinating, no-nonsense, stripped-down just-the-facts information. Thank you, Dr. Acquista.

Good book

Admittedly this wasn't the book I was trying to order. I had seen a great survival guide book in the library- but when I went back it was gone - I checked many times and never found it again so I looked here. This was at least a similar theme and the same topic so I gave this a chance.

The other book had frequent photos to assist and the information was presented in a cleaner, easier to locate format. Really wish that book would turn up again in the library so I could find it's title.

This is more of a 'preppers' book I think and less of a 'first aid and survival' type book.

I gave this book away.

Dr. Acquista's book on Emergency Prep for bio, chem or nuke attack is through enough to be useful, however a lot of the material repeats itself. Reference use only.

This book is a good start...but it didn't cover all of the ground I thought it should. More details would have helped. An O.K. investment...but still need more info to be really useful I think.
Kagrel
Given the current state of affairs, I would advise everyone to buy this book or something similar.
It effectively outlines procedures that we should all be aware of in the case of specific attacks such as:
Botox Attacks, Anthrax Concerts, Chicken Pox Weapons, and Weapons of Mass Distraction.
I for one will be sealing up my windows with velvet, destroying my microwave, and covering my children with maple syrup.
