I won't rate this only half a star on the off chance that it might actually help someone get saved some day (more likely than the Bible, anyway), but this is not the first-aid manual you should choose. Riddled with typos ("stroke" actually gets spelled "stoke" more often than it gets spelled right), weird omissions, sudden shifts in terminology, first-aid jock jargon like "make sure airway is present" and "don't move casualty if there is a spinal"), and the bad kind of redundancy, it's a sorry show all around, but there are at least two places where it gets downright dangerous: first, the part where it says "never come into direct contact with a drowning person" (it means, don't get yourself into danger and also if they're in the pool or whatever and you can use a hook or pole, do, because it's safer and easier) and second, where it says "always wash your hands with soap and water before and after administering first-aid" (where again, you can see what they're going for, like when you're gauzing a dude's gash in his leg, but come on). Either of those could cost lives, especially if the book were being consulted by like a twelve-year-old when his friend was in trouble and he didn't want to make any mistakes and just wanted to do things by the book.
