Special Forces Handbook of Medical Secrets written by James Li is an amazing collection of tips in treating wounds, illnesses, and other medical ailments. These are not the typical “home-remedies” that many of us know or have heard of, rather they are practical and easily accessible to anyone regardless of how remotely you are located. The book is geared towards those who live or work in remote areas of the world where access to medical supplies may be limited or non-existent and those in real-life emergency situations.
Among the topics – tips for treating malaria, wounds, cuts, severe stomach and colon issues and much more. Everyone knows salt added to water will help ease the pain of sore throats and heal sores in the mouth, but healing puss filled wounds with sugar or honey? I had to laugh over the fecal treatment – I am sure that is not something anyone will willingly consent to having … all the same – very interesting!
This is an excellent audiobook that describes the treatment and uses of such remedies. A definite “must-listen” audiobook for everyone! It is a brief audiobook but one that is packed with useful and vital information.
The narrator, Mike Ortego, performs the book clearly and well. His voice is authoritative and concise which helps add to the validity of the book. Ortego performed the book in a soothing tone, yet not one that puts the listener to sleep. He injected the right amount of wonder, seriousness, and fun to the book.
The audiobook is well done; flows smoothly! There were no issues with the audio quality or production of this audiobook.

I am no medical expert but enjoy getting out into the world. I went to Nepal a few years ago and became very sick. I had no medical help and couldn't communicate with locals well enough to get treatment. I wish I had read this book before then. It would have saved me a month of illness. Furthermore his description of different medicines is eye opening for anyone not familiar with modern shotgun medicine. This book is a great starting place for anyone getting ready to travel. I will keep it in my back pocket.
