Reviving this thread to add another book….
The Doomsday Book of Medicine by Ralph LaGuardia. It’s a bit pricey at around $40 on Amazon but so far I think it’s well worth it. It’s huge! It weighs over 2.5 pounds and has around 900 pages! Considering what college text books are going for these days, this is a steal. Thus far I have only gotten through the first 100 pages but I really like it so far. Just when you start getting bored with a particular topic he switches it up. Plus, you can always jump to whatever topic you need immediate info on…..I just prefer to read as written. It’s written in laymans terms and he also injects a few little stories here and there to keep things fresh. Although, if you are a liberal or left leaning in any way, be prepared to get a poke here and there. I just grin and keep reading but he probably could have written this without offending the lefties out there…..not that many of them will read it. To each his own and I actually find it quite amusing.
I’m just starting to get interested in researching essential oils, tinctures, and plants/herb uses and he does touch on these subjects. He also covers natural foods and remedies since it is a “Doomsday” book after all, where we could be left with just our knowledge and mother earth. He gives suggestions on stock piling useful supplies but also offers ideas on alternatives when the stock eventually runs out.
I probably shouldn’t be raving about this book until I have read more of it, but I can already tell that this was worth the money for me. It’s probably going to take me a while to get through this whole book (especially at this busy time of year) but I’m glad I have it in my library.
