Appreciate the Writing Style and the Organization of the book

Post by Sushan »

This topic is about the October 2021 Philosophy Book of the Month, The Prepper's Medical Handbook by William W Forgey


The book is written to-the-point, including only the necessary details, mostly. That is very much suitable for a this kind of book.

But in some occasions the descriptions are really inadequate, and seemingly the author has forgotten that he has written this book for people with no medical knowledge.
In case of possible neck injury, the airway can be opened by lifting the jaw without moving the neck.
(Location 768 - Kindle version)

This describes jaw-thrust maneuver, and I am pretty sure no one without medical knowledge will understand it by just reading this sentence.
For example, Romani find it insulting to be touched above the waist directly after being touched below the waist. This is good to know if you are coexisting with Romani.
(Location 822 - Kindle version)

And this sort of mentionings are quite unnecessary and distracting in this sort of a book.

And the author has included hyperlinks while describing a sequence of assessment and management steps. Giving knowledge as much as possible is important, but I think the hyperlinks are a distraction for the organized reading and understanding of the reader.

What do you think? Did you notice the same flaws? Do you agree with me or not? Are there any more similar things that you noticed?
