3.0 out of 5 stars From the Person Who Helped Cheney Lie Us Into a $4 Trillion War, April 7, 2015

The author of this book almost single-handedly helped Dick Cheney lie the US public into a $4 trillion dollar war, the New York Times managers then lacking in integrity — these are the same people that covered up rendition and torture and mass surveillance by NSA at opportune times, so as to “help” a favored President living by Henry Kissinger’s motto, “The illegal we do immediately, the unconstitutional takes a little longer.”

I certainly recommend the book, at the very low price that is consistent with this book’s lack of depth — like looking insider the mind of a worm, everyone should do this at least once.

KINDLE WITH LINKS: Intelligence for Earth

Cover Intelligence for Earth BigRobert Steele’s quite extraordinary book, INTELLIGENCE FOR EARTH, is now available in Kindle, which means that the hundreds of links within the book are easily exploitable. There is no one else on the planet that is a former spy, honorary hacker, #1 Amazon review for non-fiction, and the “top gun” for ethical evidence-based decision support to leaders who wish to be ethical and effective.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Best in Its Time, Superceded by Marine Medicine, March 29, 2015

Dated but exceptional.

I have been so unhappy with the “standard” references such as Advanced First Aid Afloat that that I created my own informal study guide for offshore use, one page per item, description/diagnostics, treatment, and photo.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEYOND First Aid, Comprehensive It Is March 29, 2015

I’ve been an offshore sailor since 1988, off and on, and in all that time I have been very frustrated by a wide range of largely mediocre medical references, to the point that I created my own First Aid Afloat reference (one page per issue, description/diagnosis, treatment, photo).

Prior to this book (WARNING NOTICE: this is a small book with SMALL print), my preference has been for The Onboard Medical Guide: First Aid and Emergency Medicine Afloat, in part because it comes with large pages, large print, and lots of white space. While this is the first NEW maritime medicine reference that meets my standards, I would have preferred a larger layout with larger print. This is a cargo pocket book.

Thank having been said, yesterday I had the pleasure of listening to Dr. Jacobs lecture the US Safety at Sea Seminar in Annapolis — this is the premier US Sailing event of the year — and today I had the further pleasure of an interactive session with the good doctor. I found him to not only be a superb professional, but the perfect gentleman whom I would recommend as a lecturer, mentor, and hands-on trainer.

Use Amazon’s “Look Inside the Book” to review the extraordinary table of contents. Books such as Advanced First Aid Afloat, do not satisfy m; while I like the Red Cross online PDF including the color photographs, that could still do with some improvement. What wins me over completely, the small size and print aside, is the very long list of specifics (including multiple pages on fractures and multiple pages on internal injuries) along with the concluding appendices on drugs and assistance sources.
