    Jesse, thank you again for a good review. I had this book on my “to purchase” list, plainly it won’t remain there. Glad that you did this review, it saved me some money.

    jesse,
    too late got it before surgery 2 years ago but haven’t opened it.
    thanks for review, will make notes in my copy.
    this review should help young people who have little experience.
    looking forward to other reviews.
    would like a few really good understandable books.
    thanks again

      Wasp, I will be putting together some reviews of my favorites and others that are solid good information within reason

  3. Jeff says:

    WHERE THERE IS NO DENTIST also lacked.

    Thanks

    • Jesse Mathewson says:

      Jeff, most likely I know for myself I cannot put money into a series where even one book is not complete enough/for what it says it does

  4. Docj says:

    Thanks Jesse, for a honest approach to a review. I agree that some reviews can be very difficult. A job well done.

  5. Cndnate says:

    Agree on everything you have mentioned jesse , I still have it taking up space.

    As well it is clear on the language on ‘reproductive health’ etc the socialist population control perspective the writers had. I found it to be very glaring oversite that natural family planning was only given a cursuary mention as unreliable. Modern natural family planning is not the ‘rhythem’ method. It has been studied and is proven robust on paper and I can tell you personally that it is robust… works and requires no additional moving parts (other than those god gave you to start with)

    If anyone wants to know more please speak up and I will post links.

    Very interesting…some folks speak so highly of this series of books. Glad to see your review, I will save myself the money, as I trust your judgment, Jesse.

      I was quite disappointed and as MD points out you can get them digitally freely available as well just to check out the good that they have (they do have some good) simply for me not enough to include in my chest of MUST have books

    I think I downloaded these at some stage, can’t remember but have not read them. Definitely I think aimed at 3rd world countries. I downloaded a good medical book (I think so) called “The Survival Medical Handbook (A guide for when medical help is NOT on the way.) by Joseph Alton, M.D and Amy Alton, A.R.N.P. I also found a great download book called :”How to survive a world without antibiotics” – Keith Scott-Mumby, MD. I have them in PDF format. If anyone would like a copy, I can let you have it through DropBox – but will need your email address. Happy to share, times are going to get a lot tougher.

      Jeanine thank you !

    • Jeanine Anderson ,

      I think I downloaded these at some stage, can’t remember but have not read them. Definitely I think aimed at 3rd world countries.

      I have them all and they are at least a good reference: Here’s what I have in pdf format:
      • Where There Is No Dentist
      • Safe Handling of Health Care Waste
      • Sanitation and Cleanliness for a Healthy Environment
      • Water for life
      • A Book for Midwives 2010
      • Where Women Have No Doctor 2010
      • A Community Guide to Environmental Health
      • Where there is no Doctor – 2010 Revised
      I also have: Where there is no Dentist – 2010 Revised in 12 parts plus
      Front Cover &
      Back Matter – Appendices, Vocabulary, Index
      A search for:
      “where there is no doctor” pdf will locate most of them.

      I downloaded a good medical book (I think so) called “The Survival Medical Handbook (A guide for when medical help is NOT on the way.) by Joseph Alton, M.D and Amy Alton, A.R.N.P

      I already have this one and it’s pretty good. The authors are also known as Doctor Bones & Nurse Amy and have a website: https://www.doomandbloom.net/

      . I also found a great download book called :”How to survive a world without antibiotics” – Keith Scott-Mumby, MD. I have them in PDF format. If anyone would like a copy, I can let you have it through DropBox – but will need your email address. Happy to share, times are going to get a lot tougher.

      A quick search for this one finds it also available as a free pdf download; but, once again I already have it since I’ve been downloading and saving reports and books on preparedness for more than 20 years.

    I, too, have an extensive library of “real” books, including all that u mention here.

    IMO, the ONLY book one needs is Doom & Bloom’s “The Survival Medicine Handbook”. The newest edition recommended. Buy from their site & Amy will sign it! $37.00 + $3 shipping.

    “When There is No Dentist” MIGHT be somewhat useful, but, just barely. In trying to gather useful info for dental care when there is no dentist, I found available info sadly lacking.

    If u can get past all the paganism & “ask ur plants first”, the “Altermatives to Dentists” CD promoted by Marjory Wildcraft (a Wiccan name) promotes horsetail as healing to teeth. What they don’t say is that Horsetail is a HIGHLY invasive species that will choke out everything in its path. If u grow it, keep it in a container.

    I am currently growing a floral plant, Spilanthes”, a.k.a., “toothache plant”. Look it up. Got sred from Baker Creek (raresrefs dot com,,).
