    This is the standard first aid book I ve always been given on St John s Ambulance First Aid Courses It is clearly written and comprehensive with plenty of diagrams and photos.I have a print copy but also wanted an ebook copy, and this review is for anybody considering the ebook format.The kindle format works very well using the kindle application on my 10 Android tablet However it really needs full page colour, and won t download at all on either of my kindles a popup says that the format is incompatible with the device It does download to the kindle app on my Android phone, and is just about readable but really needs a bigger screen I expect it would be fine in the kindle app for a PC.To be fair to the web page for this book does show compatible devices including various tablets but not kindles, but it s easily missed.

    I had the 8th edition of this book and wanted to get the very latest version before going on a first aid course This version is laid out in a much better way It s far logical clear and the contents index system is designed to quickly access the page you re after in an emergency.A must have for every home.

    Clear instructions on first aid I read this book prior to my first aid course It helped to refresh my memory from being a first aid at work member some 20 years ago The information in this book helped me remember everything I passed my recent first aid course with flying colours I d recommend this book to everyone, very useful.

    Everyone should have one of these in their house Gives info which can save a life but also background information, detailed diagrams of the skeleton and the names of the bones and muscles Useful for an emergency but also if you want to learn a bit about the parts of the body.

    So few changes I don t feel this is a worthwhile update This is still the definate first aid book, but with a couple of minor changes and a full review from the resuscitation council on the way this an edition for an edition s sake.

    Good Manual, well written and logically thought out and presented Information clear and of sufficient depth Additions of what to do in case of helicopter landing and traffic accidents etc makes this a comprehensive manual.
