Great information - needs polishing

The book is full of great information. The diagrams are well done, and the book is laid out in an easy to follow format. However, the book is in dire need of a copy editor, and the book binding is terrible.

Excellent Book

The manual is well written, covers all possible topics. While primarily for cave rescue, there is much that crosses over into small party steep and vertical rescue outside of cave systems. Excellent addition to any rescue library.
