I bought this with a first-aid purchase. Do people really need to be reading this? I remind myself that 3 advanced nations have experienced major terrorist attacks in the past 4 years and New Orleans is now underwater from a natural disaster. This is a handy reference that can be tucked away just in case. ( )
