    A very, VERY Self sufficient book I consider it to beof an encyclopedia rather than a book because it took me a very very long time with many attempts to read Some chapters I hope I never have to use and honestly, it was a bit too technical for me, especially since I dont have an immediate use for it I enjoyed the chapters on First Aid, Natural Medicine, and suppies Preparations, and to an extent, the Renewable Energy chapter The rest, I confess I flipped though.Overall, a great A very, VERY Self sufficient book I consider it to beof an encyclopedia rather than a book because it took me a very very long time with many attempts to read Some chapters I hope I never have to use and honestly, it was a bit too technical for me, especially since I dont have an immediate use for it I enjoyed the chapters on First Aid, Natural Medicine, and suppies Preparations, and to an extent, the Renewable Energy chapter The rest, I confess I flipped though.Overall, a great reference book with notes tospecific references, and I admit that there are some natural health cures that really give me a bit of comfort as an alternative if God forbid, anyone I know or love was diagnosed with cancer or some other medical issue Some of the cleanses are very extreme in my opinion though.While the book at times exudes a gloom a...
